Nash, Richard, commonly known as "Beau Nash" (1674-1761), was born at Swansea. He was trained to law, but entered the army, abandoning it later for the Temple, where he pleased King William as Master of the Pageant during a royal visit. In 1704 he became master of ceremonies at Bath Pump Room, and as "King of Bath" governed strictly. For a time, gaming and a tax on the tables made him rich, but he fell on evil times, and, dying, was finally buried by the city.

“You will keep in perfect peace him whose mind is steadfast, because he trusts in you.”
Isaiah 26:3
