LLOYD, HUGH (1546–1601), master of Winchester College, born in 1546 in Lleyn, Carnarvonshire, entered Winchester in 1560 (Kirby, Winchester Scholars, p. 136). Proceeding to New College, Oxford, he was admitted probationary fellow on 5 Jan. 1562, and perpetual fellow in 1564 (Oxf. Univ. Reg., Oxf. Hist. Soc., vol. i.) He graduated B.A. in 1566, B.C.L. in 1570, and D.C.L. in 1588. He resigned his fellowship in 1578 upon being appointed chancellor of Rochester; in 1579 he was presented to the vicarage of Charlbury, Oxfordshire, and was master (‘informator’) of Winchester from 1580 to 1587. On 12 Nov. 1584 he was made prebendary of St. Paul's (Le Neve, Fasti, ed. Hardy, ii. 418), and in 1588 became rector of Islip, near Oxford. He died on 17 Oct. 1601, and was buried in New College outer chapel. He was brother of John Lloyd (1558–1603) [q. v.]

Lloyd compiled ‘Phrases elegantiores ex Cæsaris Commentariis, Cicerone, aliisque, in usum Scholæ Winton. (Dictata),’ 2 pts. 8vo, Oxford, 1654, which was edited by John Lamphire [q. v.]
