Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “This book is about seven generations of a single family for two hundred years between the 1660’s and the 1860’s. But it is not simply a family history, for during those two centuries Britain underwent the change from an agrarian to an industrial nation with all the accompanying social and economic consequences. The rise of the Lloyd family reflects this traumatic metamorphosis. They rose from the ranks of the Welsh landed gentry, first in the industrial and commercial sphere with their iron works and secondly in the realm of banking, to become a notable and respected Midland family.
