Charles Lloyd of Dolobran, father of the President of the Council, was born in 1613,and was a magistrate for Montgomeryshire. He was a genealogist. and caused to be emblazoned on a panel at Dolobran his coat-of-arms with fifteen quarterings, impaled with the arms of his wife. A drawing of this was sent to the family in this country when the panel was taken down, and is as good evidence of ancestry in the female line as we could well have of any person living two centuries ago. On this shield the first, or paternal, arms are az. a chevron between three cocks ar.-those of the Princes of Dyfed, of whom Aleth, the sixteenth generation back of Thomas Lloyd of Pennsylvania, was living in the XIth Century, and the earliest of the line whose name is given was Meirig, said to have lived five centuries earlier. These arms are differenced by a crescent, to denote that the Dolobran Lloyds descended from a second son. To follow up all the quarterings, and show Lloyd 's descent from those who bore the various arms, would lead us through a labyrinth of Welsh names suggesting nothing to the reader. Suffice it to say that some of the arms appear to have been those borne by the Poles,or ancient male line of lords of Powys the Cherletons, Greys, and Kynastons, thus corroborating the pedigree given above.
Charles and Elizabeth had the following children:
