Tom Bevan (1868 – 9 November 1937), who also wrote under the pseudonym Walter Bamfylde, was a British writer of boys’ adventure stories. Originally a schoolteacher, he also wrote non-fiction books for children. Born in Risca, Monmouthshire, Bevan’s family moved to Gloucester and he was educated at Sir Thomas Rich’s School, Gloucester, and St Paul’s College, Cheltenham, a teacher training college that awarded Bristol University qualifications.

Bevan began writing historical adventure stories while working as a schoolmaster. In the 1920s he was education editor for Sampson Low and Marston. He contributed to several boys’ magazines, including Everybody’s Story Magazine and Boy’s Own Paper.

Bevan also wrote non-fiction books for children. His Stories from British History: B. C. 54 – A. D. 1485 discusses, for example, the degree to which Shakespeare’s History Plays present historical truth.

He died in Cheltenham on 9 November 1937.
