Caption: Reverend Lewis Evans (1755-1827), British astronomer. Evans was a mathematics master at Woolwich Military Academy in London and a curate in the Anglican church. He published papers on several subjects including positional astronomy and solar eclipses. He built a private observatory on Woolwich Common, where he taught from 1799 to 1820. In 1821, he built another observatory next to his vicarage garden in Froxfield, Somerset, England, which incorporated a transit clock (an astrolabe) that calculated planetary movements.
