History

The Lloyd family appear to have resided at Wigfair since at least the time of Robert ap Maredudd ap David Lloyd of Wigfair (fl. 1549-1562). Howel Lloyd (c. 1681-1729) of Wigfair married Phoebe Lloyd (d. 1760), heiress of the Lloyd family of Hafodunos.

The Lloyd family of Hafodunos was originally unrelated to the Lloyd family of Wigfair. Cynwrig ap Bleddyn (?fl. early 15 cent) appears to have been the first to have been described as of Hafodunos, and his grandson, David Lloyd (?fl. late 15th cent) appears to have been the first of his family to be called Lloyd. Hafodunos passed from father to son for a further eight generations, to Hedd Lloyd (d. c. 1739). He was suceeded by his daughter Phoebe (d. 1760), the widow of Howel Lloyd (c. 1681-1729) of Wigfair, a family that appear to have resided at Wigfair since at least the time of Robert ap Maredudd ap David Lloyd (fl. 1549-1562). The Lloyd family of Wigfair and Hafodunos lasted two generations before coming to an end with co-heiresses. One, Dorothea Lloyd, who appears to have inherited Hafodunos, married the Rev. Thomas Clough (1756-1814), rector of Denbigh, a descendant of the Clough family of Plas Clough. Their son, Rev. Thomas Hugh Clough, sold Hafodunos to Samuel Sandbach of Liverpool in 1830. The other heiress, Mary, who appears to have inherited Wigfair, married the Rev. J.C. Potter who assumed the surname Conway. Later members of the family styled themselves Lloyd Conway.
