Lloyd's in early Virginia

"There is on record in Richmond county, a power of attorney from John Lloyd, of the cit of Chester, Eng., to his 'worthy kinsman, Griffin Fauntleroy, gent,' which states that he owned several considerable plantations in Virginia, which had been entrusted to his brother Thos. Lloyd, lately deceased. Another deed speaks of lands he inherited from his brother Thomas. Thomas Lloyd was a justice of Richmond county. His inventory, dated 1699, shows a very large estate."
