He matriculated on 4 April 1789, aged twenty-one, at Jesus College, Oxford, and graduated BA in 1792. He kept a boarding-school at Colston's Parade, Bristol, and in 1807 at Winterbourne Court, near Bristol. He was the author of A Tour through Part of North Wales (1800) and Letters Written during a Tour through South Wales (1804). He also wrote volume 12, on North Wales, and contributed to volume 11 of The Beauties of England and Wales, compiled by E. W. Brayley and J. Britton. At the time of his last publication, in April 1812, Evans was residing at Delancy Place, Camden Town, London.
