Revd Thomas Lloyd LLB was born in Llanfihangel Aberbythych, near Llandeilo in Carmarthenshire in November 1745. He was educated at Carmarthen, graduated as a bachelor of law, but joined the Church and was deaconed and priested at Abergwily by the Bishop of St David's in 1768 and 1770 respectively. His early career is unknown, but in 1781, he was instituted to the vicarage of Happisburgh, married to Susannah Walne in 1782, instituted rector at Westwick in 1787 and lived at North Walsham. He seems to have had private means for he invested in several small estates in and around North Walsham and in Norwich, and, in the late 1780s, was able to loan £1,000 to the local poor law guardians. Late in life, he became a magistrate in North Walsham. Sadly, both his sons died early in their adult life in 1808. Both he and his wife died on the same day, the 26 November 1813, aged 68 and 63 respectively and were buried at North Walsham on 30 November. His only heir was his last-surviving brother in Llanfihangel.
