Section A of the collection relates to Thomas Lloyd of Towerhill andFantstownCastle. Thomas was the son of William Lloyd of Towerhill, who had  married Jane Fitzgerald and four sons. Thomas had four brothers, Reverend Rickard of Castle Lloyd, co.Limerick, Rector of Cullen and Oola, William of Towerhill, Edward and Thomas. This section includes a marriage settlement and mainly relates to the division of Thomas’s estate among his children from two marriages.  Richard, William and Edward from his first marriage and three sons and three daughters form a second marriage. Two of these sons died young while Thomas and three sisters Jane, Francis and Mary  survived to claim part of their fathers estate, a process that generated a great deal of legal opinions and cases.

Section (B) relates to Thomas’s brother, Reverend Rickard Lloyd of Castle Lloyd and Newtown Pery includes correspondence with other members of the Lloyd family and property.

Section C relates to another brother, Edward Lloyd, possibly the third son of Thomas Lloyd and includes a marriage agreement, a will and property transactions.

Section D includes two items relating to a forth brother William Lloyd, which includes a case from solicitor John Fitzgibbon  writing ‘ the inhabitants of the city ofLimerickcannot be prevailed upon to present money sufficient for the repair of the streets which are in a bad state.’ P67/50 (10 June 1772)

Section E is a relatively large section and is concerned with the affairs of Reverend Edward Lloyd of Newtown Pery and William Street, Limerick, and relates mainly to requests for family members for financial support and demands, notably from a relative Maria Moore. These provide an insight into the dependency of the middle class protestant landowning class on inherited wealth.  The series of letters between Maria Moore and her husband to her brother Reverend Edward Lloyd illustrate this dependency. ‘surely you cannot have any objection to our request being the first payment from you, it has hurt her spirits very much to feel herself so totally forgotton and having so very large a sum of money due her’. (P67/62, 20 April 1800, p1).  These letters also provide an insight into social aspects of their lives as Moore writes of her fifteen year old daughter’s acceptance of a marriage proposal and her husband mentions a visit to the Spa at Mallow to take the waters. (P67/65)  The family correspondence in this section reflects the contemporary political 1798 rebellion in Ireland ; ‘martial law was proclaimed there on June 2nd’ P67/58, 3 June 1798.

The nineteenth century family members are dealt with under Section F, G and H while section J relates to the last incumbent of Portnard House, Catherine Lloyd and the sale of the estate under the land commission.  This section also includes receipts from local suppliers.

Section K relates to legal material concerning title to the barony of Counagh and includes a copy of the distribution of the barony of Counagh listing proprietors names and holdings. (P67/124.)  This section also includes a notice to the occupiers of land to bring their leases and maps  for inspection in order that ‘future Applotments will be more equally made and the Poor will be eased of a Burthen they have but too just reason to complain of’ (P67/125, October 1762)

Section L includes material relating to the national land agitation of the late nineteenth century and includes copies of public letters from the leaders of the land movement then in jail. Includes a copy of a notice to ‘ The people ofIreland, Pay No rent, Avoid the Land Court, Hold the Harvest, No Rent. By Order Patrick Egan Treasurer.( p126)

The final section relates to household recipes and remedies

  • File of correspondence between Rickard E Lloyd, and his brother in law James Ford concerning Rickard’s financial difficulties to Isabella; ‘Agnes and I were exceedingly grieved and displeased on hearing of the position of which Rickard has placed himself, the folly is almost [miserable]. I may tell you the effect on my mind has been to destroy the sympathy I would have felt had the [lop] arisen from causes over which he had no control, a man who plays ducks and drakes with his money in this way must just bear the consequences’.( p1 18 February 1887) In a subsequent letter Rickard replied; ‘As you blame me rather freely, I think it only right to explain, that though I deserve a good deal of blame myself for want of foresight, yet much of my difficulties arise from causes over which I had no control’. ( p1 20 February 1887) to which Mr. Ford replies that ‘you are much less blameable than I supposed’.( p1 23 February 1887). Rickard replied to Mr. Ford ‘My dear Mr. Ford, I have to thank you sincerely for the friendly tone of your letter received this morning, I am glad you do not think me so very culpable, but I must always fully blame myself for my want of caution, The only thing to be done now is to lay the experience to heart and make the best of my circumstances as they are. I have every hope of being able to arrange affairs so as to keep a farm in my own hands, about 150 acres, for which I will pay a fair rent. But as I must sell all my stocks to satisfy the arrangement with my creditors. I look forward to hard times and difficulty for a good while until I can fit stock together again. Your kindly offered loan will be a great help to replace the stock, and I will gladly avail myself of it, as soon as my arrangements are complete and I can say I am free from liabilities which at present I cannot say, Isabella received from Agnes the £60.00 given with such kind intentions. Thanking you and her again.’ (p1-2, 26 February 1887)
