Lloyd (Mortlestown)

John Lloyd of Cranagh, county Tipperary, refers to his kinsman Thomas Lloyd Prince in his will dated 1770. A document in the Kilboy Papers refers to Thomas Prince Loyd (sic) of Mayfield who had an estate worth about £1,000. Thomas Prince Lloyd, son of Robert Lloyd of county Tipperary, entered Trinity College, Dublin in 1811 aged 19. His address in 1844 is given as Mortlestown Castle when his son also named Thomas Prince Lloyd entered the King's Inns. At the time of Griffith's Valuation Thomas P. Lloyd held land in the parishes of Drangan and Rathcool, barony of Middlethird and in the parish of Bourney, barony of Ikerrin. The estate John Millett assignee of Thomas Prince Lloyd amounting to 1,476 acres in the baronies of Ikerrin and Middlethird was advertised for sale in January 1853.
