DEATH OF REV. VALENTINE LLOYD. We regret to chronicle the death of Rev. William Valentine Lloyd, M.A., F.R.G.S., R.N., Rector of Haselbeech, Northamptonshire, and chaplain to his Royal Highness the Duke of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (Duke of Edinourgh), which took place at Leamington on the 17th inst., in his 72nd year. The eldest son of the late Mr William Lloyd, of Parteen Manor, County Clare, he was appointed a chaplain in the Royal Navy in 1858, and Naval in- structor in 1860. In 1879 he was appointed chap- lain to his Royal Highness Admiral the Duke of Edinburgh, and from 1880 to 1882 served in the Duke of Wellington's Royal Marines at Portsmouth. He retired from the service at the commencement of 1882, and the same year was presented by Mr C. G. S. Foljambe (now Lord Hawkesbury) to the Vicarage of Haselbeech, Northampton. Mr Lloyd married in 1850 Caroline Amelia Sophia, daughter of Captain John A. Aylmer, R.N., and sister of the present Baron Aylmer, and was raised to the rank of a Baron's daughter in 1867. He was from the commencement a member of the Powysland Club, being for many years one of the joint honorary secretaries. He was the author of The Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire," and many genealogical works, among them being the list given below. He was lineally descended from Sir Griffith Vaughan, Knt., of Garth, who was murdered at, Powis Castle in 1447. The Lloyds of Havodwen, or Marrington, are an illustrious Powysland family, who claim descent from Brochwel Ysgythrog, King of Powis, 7th century, the well-known arms of whose tribe was the Three Nags Heads erased." There is no man living who was better acquainted with the pedigrees of Montgomeryshire families than he was, and the Powysland Club has lost a member whose place can never be filled. The funeral took place at Chirbury on Tuesday, the service being conducted by Ven. Archdeacon Thomas and Rev. Prebendary Burd (Vicar). The Powysland Club was represented by Archdeacon Thomas and Mr T. Simpson Jones.
