Morgan, William (c.1545–1604). Bishop and Welsh scholar. Morgan was born in Cardiganshire and sent to St John's College, Cambridge. In 1575 he was made vicar of Welshpool, moving in 1578 to Llanrhaidadr Mochnant. He then undertook to complete the translation of the Bible into Welsh, begun by William Salesbury. The edition, including a revision of Salesbury's New Testament, appeared in 1588. Morgan was made bishop of Llandaff in 1595 and promoted to the slightly wealthier see of St Asaph in 1601.
