Rhys Lloyd, Baron Lloyd of Kilgerran

Rhys Gerran Lloyd, Baron Lloyd of Kilgerran CBE, QC, JP (12 August 1907–30 January 1991) was a Welsh Liberal Party politician.

Son of James G. Lloyd of John Ruskin. He became a barrister at Grays Inn in 1939,[1] specialising in patent law, then became a Queen's Counsel in 1961.[2] During the Second World War he served as a government scientific researcher.[1]

Lloyd was made a Justice of the Peace for the county of Surrey (where by 1983 he lived at Esher) in 1953 and also awarded the CBE the same year.[1]

Lloyd stood unsuccessfully for the Liberal Party in Anglesey at the 1959 UK general election, becoming President of the Welsh Liberal Party from 1971 to 1974, and of the British Liberal Party in 1973–74. In 1973, he was given a life peerage, and in the Lords, he focussed on developments in patent and copyright law. From 1977 to 1983, he was joint treasurer of the party, with Monroe Palmer.[2]

He married in 1940 Phyllis, daughter of Ronald Shepherd of Chilworth, Southampton, Hampshire, with whom he had two daughters.[1] Lord Lloyd died aged 83 in 1991. She outlived him, dying on 11 September 2006 aged 99.[3]
