Reverend Thomas Price (October 2, 1787 � 1848) (known by the bardic name of Carnhuanawc) was a historian and a major Welsh literary figure of the early 19th century.
Price was born at Llanfihangel Bryn Pabuan near Brecon. In 1805 he went to Brecon grammar school, living in lodgings until he was able to qualify as a deacon of the Church of England. He became a curate in Radnorshire, living at Builth Wells with his mother. He wrote in both the English and Welsh languages. He was a major influence on Lady Charlotte Guest, whom he assisted in her translation of the Mabinogion. He was also associated with the work of Augusta Hall, Baroness Llanover, to whom he taught Welsh. Lady Llanover became his patron and brought him to live near her when his health failed.
