James Lloyd
Birth: 1745
Chestertown
Kent County
Maryland, USA
Death: 1820
Easton
Talbot County
Maryland, USA

US Senator. A former attorney, Lloyd was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the Kent County Militia in 1776, and he served throughout the Revolutionary War. Lloyd continued his militia membership, eventually attaining the rank of Brigadier General. In 1797 he was elected to the US Senate as a Federalist, filling the vacancy caused by John Henry's resignation, and serving until his resignation in 1800. During his term Lloyd was one of the main proponents of the Alien and Sedition Acts. He commanded militia troops during the defense of Maryland in the War of 1812. One of Lloyd's daughters married William Hemsley, who served in the Continental Congress, and James Lloyd was buried at their estate. (bio by: Bill McKern)
