Biographical Note

Henry Lloyd (1685-1763) owned a shipping business in Rhode Island before settling on his father's estate, known as the Manor of Queens Village, near Oyster Bay in Queens County, N.Y. As of 2011, Lloyd's home, commonly called the Henry Lloyd Manor House, still survives on the grounds of Caumsett State Historic Park. The land comprising the Lloyd family estate is now part of the village of Lloyd Harbor in Suffolk County, Long Island.
