Notables Project
Thomas Lloyd is Notable.

Thomas Lloyd, third son of Charles Lloyd, Esq., and Elizabeth Stanley, was born at Dolobran in Meifod, Montgomeryshire, Wales 17 February 1640/1.[1][2]

Thomas, a physician, was educated at Jesus College, Oxford,[1] where he received the degree of Bachelor of Arts on 29 January 1661.[3] He became a member of the Society of Friends (Quakers), and left Oxford about 1662.[1] In 1664 he was arrested and imprisoned in Welshpool until the Royal Declaration of Indulgence in 1672.[3][4] Thomas seems to have "enjoyed a nominal liberty during at least a portion of this period, as it covers the date of his marriage, and his wife was permitted to visit him in prison".[3]

He married first Mary Jones, daughter of Col. Roger Jones of Welshpool, on 9 September 1665[1] at the Friends Meeting in Shropshire, Wales.[3] They had four sons and six daughters:

  • Mordecai,[1] born 7 December 1669; died without issue in 1694, lost at sea[3]
  • John,[1] born 3 February 1670/71; died without issue 1692, in Jamaica[3]
  • Thomas,[1] born 15 September 1675; died 1718; married Sarah Young and had issue[3]
  • Samuel,[1] born 1684 in Philadelphia and died young[3]
  • Hannah, wife of John Delaval and Richard Hill,[1] was born 21 September 1666[3]
  • Rachel, wife of Samuel Preston,[1] was born 20 January 1667[/8][3]
  • Mary, wife of Isaac Norris,[1] was born 27 March 1674[3]
  • Elizabeth, wife of Daniel Zachary,[1] was born 1 March 1677, died 22 July 1704 and had issue[3]
  • Margaret,[1] born 5 May 1680, died 13 September 1693[3]
  • Deborah, wife of Mordecai Moore, M.D.[1] was born 1 March 1682[3]

In 1683, Thomas and his family immigrated to Pennsylvania,[1] departing London on 10 June and arriving in Philadelphia 20 August.[3] He served as Master of the Rolls[1] in 1683, appointed by William Penn to record the laws of the province, as well as real estate transfers and other legal proceedings.[3] He was the president of the Provincial Council of Pennsylvania[1] in 1684 and served as Deputy Governor of Pennsylvania[1] from 1684-1688 and 1690-1693.[3]

Thomas' wife, Mary, died in 1683 and was buried at the Friends (Arch Street) burying ground in Philadelphia.[1]

Thomas married second after 27 December 1684 (intentions at Westbury, New York Monthly Meeting) Patience Gardiner, widow of Robert Story of New York. They had no issue.[1]

Thomas died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania,[3] 10 September 1694, leaving a will dated 10 July 1694, proved 22 October 1694. His widow, Patience, left a will dated 14 August 1720 and proved 30 June 1724.[1]

After his death, two of his pamphlets were published: "An epistle to my Dear and well beloved Friends of Dolobran" in 1788 and "A Letter to John Eccles and Wife" in 1805.[4]

Magna Carta Project

This profile was reviewed and approved for the Magna Carta Project on 7 May 2020 by Thiessen-117.
Thomas Lloyd is listed in Magna Carta Ancestry, vol. I, pages xxiii-xxix, as a Gateway Ancestor and is in a Richardson-documented trail to Magna Carta Surety Barons Hugh le Bigod and Roger Bigod (vol. I, pages 425-432, CHERLETON) that was badged by the Magna Carta Project on 18 December 2021. Trails to William de Mowbray, Robert de Vere and Henry de Bohun were also badged in December 2021. Trails to some other surety barons were identified by the Project in 2015 and require re-development to bring them up to current project standards. The trails, profiles, and their status are set forth below.
See Base Camp for more information about Magna Carta trails. See the project's glossary for project-specific terms, such as a "badged trail".

Dictionary of Welsh Biography has 17 Feb. 1640 - https://biography.wales/article/s-LLOY-DOL-1292

Birth date? 6 April 1640 is from Wikidata, which cites "SNAC", but I didn't see a source for the birth date.

Datafield for profile has 17 Feb 1640, which matches FindAGrave memorial.

Source list has a link to Richardson's Magna Carta Ancestry, page 432, which gives his birth date as 17 Feb. 1640/41.

I marked that dbe (different birth date than wikidata) as false, as I find no support for 6 April 1640.

Of interest: 2nd mo. would be April in 1640, but that wouldn't align 6th day (of April) in 1640 & 17th day (of February) in 1640/41, which would be the following year.

See Sue Roe's "The Problem of Dates" (click here) for more info about Julian vs Gregorian & Quaker dates.

much of the FindAGrave research was added by Claudia Davenport-Sullivan. (The text about his death was added by her on 26 Apr 2018.)

Image 4 & text was added by Shawn Lloyd (S.V. Lloyd) in 2014.

and... Text with the 4th image on his FindAGrave memorial shows entry of his death as "7-12-1694". Looking at the image, it appears that 7 is the month, which would be September in 1694.

So, it would appear by that image that he died 12 September 1694. Text for the image says:

"This record indicates that Thomas died on July 12th 1694. From the Quakers meeting record, found on Ancestry!"

However, text with the first image says:

"He was taken with a Malignant fever ye 5th day of ye 7mo 1694 and though ye pain was violent on his outward body, yt he bore it with much patience and ye 10th day of ye same anno, being ye 6th day of his illness itt has pleased ye Lord to remove him to himself . . ." (Philadelphia Yearly Meeting - Minutes, 1679-1703, Philadelphia, PA ~ pg 48, et seq)

looking to find where birth "17 Feb 1640" came from, I found info on his marriage to Mary Jones - appears it should be November, not September:

Monthly Meeting of Shropshire, Thomas Lloyd and Mary Jones, both being members of the Lord's people in or near Welshpool in the County of Montgomery being both inhabitants in the said Town...

Married on the Ninth day of the Ninth Month commonly called November in the Year One Thousand Six Hundred and Sixty five

Wit: Charles Lloyd (brother), Richard & Sarah (Williams) Moore, Richard Davies, Elizabeth Jackson (m. Edward Prichard in 1676), Constantine & Jane Overton, Owen Roberts, etc.

From text with 2nd image on his FindAGrave memorial.

The title "lieutenant-governor of provincial Pennsylvania" is not this person's alternate last name. Can we remove this from the Other Last Name(s) field?
