(c.1630–79), seminary priest and martyr. Born at Brecon, he entered the English seminary at Valladolid in 1649 and was ordained priest in 1653. The next year he returned to Wales and exercised his ministry for over twenty years without any recorded molestation. In the scare following the ‘Popish Plot’ of Titus Oates, Lloyd was arrested in Glamorgan (1678) and charged with having said Mass at Llantilio, Penrhos, and Trievor. He was imprisoned at Cardiff castle with Philip Evans who was tried with him on 3 May: both were condemned for their priesthood. They were hanged, drawn, and quartered on 22 July. Lloyd and Evans are among the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales canonized by Paul VI in 1970. Feast: 25 October.
