The Quaker Iron Foundry of Neath Abbey founded by the Fox and Tregelles family and run by the Price family took on SPT as an apprentice. Although he respected the Quaker ethos, he found the work disagreeable and having a talent for languages, taught himself Hebrew and Welsh in his free moments. Having arrived in Wales at the time of the Welsh cultural reawakening, SPT immersed himself in Welsh history and literature, turning to respected Welsh scholars for guidance in his enquiries.
