Dates of existence


The union of the Lloyd families of Hafodunos and Wigfair took place with the marriage of Phoebe Lloyd, the heiress of Hafodunos, and Howel Lloyd (d. 1729) of Wigfair. Their second son, also called Howel (d. 1783), became the heir of the combined estates; he married Dorothea Conway of Ruthin. Hafodunos was sold in 1830. John Lloyd ('The Phillosopher') was the eldest child of Howel and Dorothea Lloyd. He graduated to the Bar from the Middle Temple in 1781 and was made a Bencher in 1811. He served as member of parliament for Flintshire from 1797 to 1799. John Lloyd possessed a library of over ten thousand books, manuscripts, maps and scientific equipment. He corresponded extensively with some of the most notable scientists, philosophers and writers of his day, including Joseph Banks, William Herschel, Thomas Pennant, Hester Lynch Piozzi and 'Gwallter Mechain'.
