Guy Lloyd Esq. of Croghan House (1766-1842) as referred to by Lewis in 1837 and Bourke in 1838, was an English gentleman, born and raised at Bawdeswell Hall, Norfolk.
Also known as "Guy Lloyd of Croghan and Hackford Vale", he was the eldest son of Col. Richard L'loyd and Sarah Jeeks, the sole heiress of Bawdeswell Hall, Norfolk, England, where Guy had been born and raised. On 15 Dec 1795, at Herdeston, he married Martha Bircham of the Ollands, Norfolk and the couple took up residence at Hackford Vale, Norfolk.
In 1811, being the eldest son, he succeeded to his father's estates in the counties of Roscommon, Leitrim and Sligo in Ireland; and in Norfolk, England. Bawdeswell Hall and Demesne was left in the possession of his sisters.
Continuing his service as magistrate for the county of Norfolk since 1788, he was exempted from serving as high sherriff for the County of Roscommon.
As far as pre-famine Ireland was concerned, he was an absentee landlord – his "seat" was at Croghan but his "residence" was at Hackford Vale, Norfolk.
His son, Guy Lloyd Jun. (1803-1860) took up residence in Croghan before the Great Famine – he was a member of the Grand Panel for Co Roscommon in 1828, served as High Sheriff of Roscommon in 1833, inherited his father's estate in 1842, and served as High Sheriff of Leitrim in 1847.
