April A-Z Challenge – H for Henry Lloyd Taylor

April 11, 2017

The Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is a challenge put out to bloggers to publish a post from A-Z every day in April, except for Sundays. April 1 is A, and so on throughout the month. Bloggers can post randomly or on a theme. The theme I have chosen is ‘My Ancestors’. I used this same theme for the Blogging from A-Z April Challenge in 2015. This time the ancestors posted about will mostly be more distant members of the family. Hopefully, when combined this will form a full picture of my family history.

H is for Henry Lloyd Taylor

Born in December 1953, at Whittlesea, Victoria, HENRY LLOYD TAYLOR was the 9th child of 12 children. As was the custom in this family, Henry was given the middle name of Lloyd, the maiden name of his mother MARTHA LLOYD. Each of his brothers also had the name of Lloyd. This custom appeared in most families until very recently. My father and his brothers had the middle name of Lloyd also.

Henry married Mary Ann Culver at the Wesleyan Church at Wangaratta, on 23 October, 1878. They had eight children – six boys and two girls, before Mary passed away in 1910.

On 8 January 1913, Henry married ELIZABETH ANN EDWARDS in Yarrawonga, Victoria. Elizabeth gave birth to a son, HENRY LLOYD in 1914

Henry Lloyd Taylor Snr, died on 20 November 1932 at Thornbury and is buried in the Heidelberg cemetery.

Henry Lloyd Taylor was the brother of my great  grandfather WILLIAM LLOYD TAYLOR.
