Lloyd resided on his mother’s ancient family estate in Montgomeryshire and was returned for the county on a vacancy in 1795.2 He gave an independent support to Pitt’s administration, but voted against it on the subject of the land tax (April-May 1798), supporting the view that there should be no new land tax without a tax on all property. Lloyd certainly spoke against the cavalry bill, 2 Nov. 1796, and he may have spoken again as ‘Mr Lloyd’ (there were three in the House then).3 An investor in East India Company stock, he died 19 Feb. 1799, shortly before his father, ‘enforcing general respect by his public merit’.4
