LLOYD, James, physician, born on Long Island in April, 1728; died in Boston, 14 March, 1810. His grandfather, James, came from Somersetshire, England, about 1670. The grandson studied medicine at Stratford, Connecticut, at Boston, and in London for two years, and, on his return to Boston in 1752, obtained an extensive practice. He was for some time a surgeon at Castle William, and in 1764 was a strenuous advocate for general inoculation. He was a moderate Loyalist, and remained in Boston while it was occupied by the British troops. In 1789 he went to England to obtain compensation for losses that he had sustained during the Revolution" but his application was refused unless he should consent to declare himself a British subject, which he did not feel disposed to do.--His son, James, statesman, born in Boston in 1769; died in New York, 5 April, 1831, was graduated at Harvard in 1787, and afterward engaged in mercantile pursuits for some time.
