Conybeare The Very Rev William Daniel

Conybeare, The Very Rev. William Daniel, F.R.S., was born in 1787, and educated at Westminster and Christ Church, Oxford, where he took high honours. He devoted himself to the study of geology, just at that moment coming into prominence as a science. With Dr. Buckland he made a survey of the north of Ireland. In 1821 he constructed the skeleton of the Plesiosaurus, and in 1822 brought out, in conjunction with Phillips, the Outlines of the Geology of England and Wales. He held for many years the rectory of Sully, Glamorganshire, delivered the Bampton Lectures in 1839, and in 1847 was appointed Dean of Llandaff. He died in 1857.
