b. 1570 or 1571, a native of Montgomeryshire, and uncle of David Lloyd, dean of S. Asaph. He matriculated 25 January 1588/9, became Fellow of All Souls, Oxford, and graduated B.C.L. 1597, and D.C.L. 1602, and was made advocate of Doctors' Commons 1609. When or where he started his career as a cleric is not clear, but his advance in it was evidently rapid, for in 1615 he was made rector of Clynnog-fawr, Caerns., chancellor of Hereford, and canon of Windsor, and in 1617, dean of Hereford, which office he held until his death in 1625. He was a benefactor of Jesus College, Oxford. He is to be distinguished from another Oliver Lloyd, who was his nephew and brother to the David Lloyd mentioned above. This Oliver Lloyd, who was also a Fellow of All Souls and a D.C.L., d. in 1662.
