April A-Z Challenge – L is for Lloyd

April 12, 2015

LL is for LLOYD. Martha Annie Lloyd is my Great Great Grandmother. She was born in Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales on 2 September 1813. Martha’s father was JAMES LLOYD born about 1787 and lived in Pembrokeshire.

Martha and her husband JOHN TAYLOR emigrated to Australia, with their toddler son JAMES LLOYD and infant JOHN LLOYD. Their voyage must have been very difficult with two very small children to care for.

In most generations of the TAYLOR family, all the boys take the second name of LLOYD. This was still occuring in my father’s family, when all sons except one, were given the middle name of LLOYD>

  1. I love family naming traditions, like using the name Lloyd as a middle name for all the sons. In my husband’s family, on his father’s side, it was a tradition that the boys got their mother’s maiden name as a middle name, but unfortunately he missed out on that tradition.
