John LLOYD d.1682?

Biographical Note

No biographical details about this man have been traced, other than that he was curate at North Mymms, Hertfordshire between 1662 and 1682; he was also probably known as Floyd. His Treatise of the episcopacy, liturgies, and ecclesiastical ceremonies of the primitive times, in which he is described as presbyter of the church of North-Mimmes, was published in 1660 (ESTC R21763).


Lloyd's library, together with that of the judge Sir Thomas Raymond, was sold by auction in London by Edward Millington, beginning 3 December 1683. The sale catalogue lists 3900 lots, divided between Latin theology (547), Latin miscellaneous (772), English divinity (1150), English miscellaneous (1033), French and Italian books (225), and volumes of tracts and miscellanies (111). The catalogue does not distinguish the source of the books and it is not possible to know how many came from each man.
