Roberts, Samuel, commonly known in Wales as "S. R.," was born at Llanbrynmair, Mar. 6, 1800, and died at Conway in Oct., 1885. He was a well-known Congregational minister. In 1841 he published a collection of over 2000 hymns, of which several of the originals and translations were by him; but as there is no index of authors, his productions cannot be distinguished from the rest (Welsh Hymnody,§ iii. 8).
