Thomas Peter "Tom" Lloyd
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: unknown
Death: 1927
Victoria, Australia

Jack Lloyd's son, Tom Junior, was possibly closer to Ned Kelly than any of the other members of the gang. Being Ned's first cousin, Tom was a staunch supporter, often referred to as the fifth member of the Kelly Gang. He is recognised today as an important piece of the Kelly puzzle. Tom was friend, adviser, strategist, and tactician to the Gang.
During the Kelly uprising he was a formidable leader of the sympathisers which lead to his arrest. It has been said that in other circumstances he could have been Ned Kelly. Tom and Wild were mainstays of the Kelly Gang but where Isaiah "Wild" Wright was arrogant, Lloyd was far more close-chested.

"Don't ride into this mess"
Ned to Tom The Last Outlaw

While her husband, William Skilling, was in prison serving six years hard labour, Ned's sister Margaret began a relationship with Tom Lloyd that would culminate in a marriage and a family of eleven children. During the final hours of the Glenrowan battle, Tom comforted Ned when he could have escaped with Lloyd's help, but predictably, Kelly refused. When Tom goes to visit Ned in prison prior to his hanging, Kelly tells him where to find a planted saddle. It highlights the bond these two bushmen shared. In later life, Tom became a respected farmer and lived into his seventies. When Tom passed away in 1927 he was buried at the Greta Cemetery.
