Thomas Charles-Edwards was a Welsh minister, writer and academic who was the first Principal of the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth.
Edwards was the son of Lewis Edwards, founder of the Bala Theological College. He was educated at Lincoln College, Oxford, and began preaching with the Presbyterian Church of Wales in 1856. He became minister of the Windsor Street chapel in Liverpool, and later of the Catherine Street chapel in the same city. He was accounted one of the leading preachers of his generation.
In 1872 the new university at Aberystwyth was founded, and Edwards was appointed as the first Principal. He resigned from this post in 1891, partly for health reasons and partly to follow his father as head of the Bala Theological College. He was Moderator of the General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church in 1887.

FAITH AN ASSURANCE AND A PROOF.
"Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the proving of things not seen. For therein the elders had witness borne to them.

Let love of the brethren continue. Forget not to shew love unto strangers: for thereby some have entertained angels unawares.
