Charles Lloyd was a member of aristocracy in the British Isles.

Charles LLOYD[1] (John, David, David) was born[5] in 1613. He was from Dolobran, Montgomeryshire, Wales. He died about 17 Aug 1657 and was buried[6] on 17 Aug 1657 in Merwod, Wales. Charles married Elizabeth STANLEY about 1637 in Wales. Elizabeth was born[7] about 1617, she was from Knockin, Shopshire. Elizabeth was the daughter of Thomas Stanley of Knockin, Shopshire.

Charles Lloyd of Dolobran, father of the President of the Council, was born in 1613,and was a magistrate for Montgomeryshire.[2] 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:

  1. Charles LLOYD was born[8] about 1637 in Dolobran, Montgomeryshire Wales.
  2. John LLOYD was born[9] about 1638 in Dolobran, Montgomeryshire, Wales. He married Jane Gresham and they had John and Samuel.
  3. Elizabeth LLOYD was born[10] about 1639 in Dolobran, Montgomeryshire, Wales. She married Henry Perry of Penameer, Meroneth, Wales.
  4. Thomas LLOYD was born[11] on 17 Feb 1640 in Dolobran, Montgomeryshire, Wales. He died[12] on 17 Sep 1694 in Pennsylvania. Thomas married 1st[13], at Shropshire Quaker Meeting 9mo (Nov) 1665 Mary Jones of Welchpool. She died in Philadelphia. He married 2nd, Patience Story of New York, a widow, who survived him. [3]

Died Y. 17 AUG 1657. Wales Age: 43-44.
