Lloyd (Towerhill)

The Lloyds of Towerhill, county Limerick, are descended from the second son of the Reverend Thomas Lloyd of Towerhill and Fantstown. In 1801 the Reverend Rickard Lloyd of Towerhill had married Maria, daughter of the Venerable Garrett Wall and his wife Margaret, eldest daughter of Rickard Lloyd of Castle Lake, county Tipperary. William Lloyd of Towerhill married Dorothea Louisa O'Grady and died in 1864. His widow, Mrs Louisa Lloyd, owned 968 acres in county Limerick in the 1870s. The estate had been advertised for sale in 1889 but the Irish Times reported that no bidders had come forward at the time. In July 1890 the proposal by Messers. Blake to purchase the estate for £8000 was acceded to by the court.
