William LLOYD 2
William was a Malster in Stroud. He married Sarah Essington (qv) who was also from Stroud. They are known to have had five children - four sons and a daughter. Their two eldest sons, Samuel and William, were warehousemen and cloth sellers in Lower Thames Street in the City of London, and were non-conformists. Both married and had children. It is clear from wills that the next son Nathaniel was financially dependant on the rest of the family. Little is known about the youngest son Richard, although he was living in Hounditch when he died in 1809, and was also a non-conformist. Their only daughter was Sarah (qv), who married Michael Compigne (qv), a silk mercer.
