Children of John Taylor and Martha Lloyd

June 4, 2016

I’ve written about my great great grandparents  John Taylor and Martha Lloyd but I thought it about time that I started to concentrate on their children. Just for now here are there names and birth dates.

JAMES LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1839 at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales

JOHN LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1840 at Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales

WILLIAM LLOYD TAYLOR b 1842 at Diamond Creek, Victoria Australia

MARY TAYLOR b. 1844 at Diamond Creek, Victoria, Australia

ANN TAYLOR b. 1846 at Diamond Creek, Victoria, Australia

THOMAS LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1848 at Diamond Creek, Victoria, Australia

CHARLES LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1850 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia

GEORGE LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1851 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia

HENRY LLOYD TAYLOR b. 1853 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia

ALICE TAYLOR b. 1856 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia

ELLEN TAYLOR b. 1857 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia

ARTHUR LLOYD b. 1859 at Whittlesea, Victoria, Australia.


The family of twelve children, eight sons and four daughters, lived in the Diamond Creek and Whittlesea areas until the children were grown and moved away to start their own lives with their families.  Most of the children lived long lives with the exception of George, who died shortly after birth, Alice, who died aged 35, and Ellen who died at about one year old. For the times, this was a great child survival rate amongst immigrant families.

Notice all sons have the middle name of ‘Lloyd’. This continued in subsequent generations, to as recently as my father’s family.

    Interestingly my ancestors – the Rees – came from Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire, Wales to Victoria. Many of them carried the name Lloyd. They also came at the end of the 1840’s.

    • Rae I am fairly sure that there is a connection between the Rees family and my Taylor/Lloyd family. But so far haven’t found it yet.

  2. Sorry Rae that sounded very blunt. I did mean to say that I’m interested to hear that the name of Lloyd was in the Rees family. This makes me think that there could be truth in the Rees connection. Further research to be done on that in the near future.

  3. Hello Jennifer

    I was just having a look at the children of John Taylor and Martha Lloyd to see if I had the same names. I was very interested to see a comment by Rae Alexander about her ancestors named Rees from Pembrokeshire, Wales. From the Hillas side of my family, a David Rees came out to NSW as a convict in 1816 on the ship Atlas. He hailed from Parish of St Michaels which is situated in Rudbaxton, Haverfordwest, Pembrokeshire. He was the partner of Hannah Hillas, sister of my Great Great Grandfather George Hillas. It would be a small world if Rae’s Rees are related to the Taylors and David Rees on the Hillas side.

    • Marcia I have long thought that the Rees family could be connected to my Taylor family. It would be a coincidence if they were also connected to your Hillas side. But as you know, the world was much smaller then, and there is every chance there was a connection.
