Born 27 May 1709, she was a Lloyd of Hendrewaelod and Llangystennin (tablets in Llangystennin church); her brother ROBERT LLOYD (1707 - 1753) was rector of Aber. She gravitated to London, and became a Wesleyan, but in 1740 came under Moravian influence, and in 1741 became a full-time Moravian helper. In 1743 she was sent up to Yorkshire to supervise Moravian work among the ‘single sisters.’

There she married (27 August 1744) Thomas Moore. Rebelling against German autocracy in the Yorkshire mission, she and her husband were deprived of their offices, and later on left the Brethren's church, but eventually rejoined it. She died at Leeds 8 September 1762, and was buried in the Brethren's ground at Fulneck.
