The Lloyd Family
 
 

Guy Lloyd was the eldest surviving son of Richard Lloyd, chief Justice of Ireland, and had an ancestral estate at Croghan in Ireland. On his death he was followed by his eldest son, another Richard, who held his first court in 1768. He gambled the Bylaugh estate away to Sir John Lombe. Legend has it that Sir John Lombe bribed Lloyd's butler to get his master drunk.

Richard Lloyd moved to Bawdeswell Hall, the property of his wife Elizabeth, and he died in 1811.
