Advice before editing this pre-1700 Lloyd profile?

I have information to contribute to the profile of Christopher Lloyd. This is what I can add:

These are the sources I am using:

  • Burke's Irish Gentry of Ireland, 1899, Lineage of Lloyd of Lossett, p. 266 on www.findmypast.co.uk.

Should I contact one of the pre-1700 projects or know about any style guidelines before proceeding? Thank you!

Since the 1899 edition is only on paysites, you can also cite the 1894 edition (GB+Ireland)

https://archive.org/details/genealogicalhera02inburk/page/1218

It's credited to Sir Bernard, but he was dead.

There might be more detail in the 1899 edition (when Ireland was hived off into a separate volume).

Hi Linda, I edited the profile of Richard Lloyd for you adding the missing Biography, Sources headers and references tag. Also added the open and close tags for your source citations. Hope this helps.

Thanks for tidying this up. I think we should cite both 1894 and 1899 editions of Burke's. Please note that I changed the birth place. His father lived at New Ross, Co Wexford, according to Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland, so that is where he was almost certainly born.

Am I to do something more?

Another researcher will be attaching his ancestor as a brother to Richard and adding parents and grandparents.

Hi Linda, you can add both 1894 and 1899 editions of Burke's to the profile. If Burke's Landed Gentry of Ireland is available for free and online you can also use the URL/link to add to the source(s).
