Making steady progress but will keep powder dry.
Found this today which is a Lloyd/Ballard coincidence!

I had John Ballard born in 1752 and his brother Philip in 1755 both sons of John B and Margaret Dowding.
I agree that Elizabeth Collins could be the illigitimate dau of John Ballard. It could follow then that Mrs Harris is likewise!
I rather think that JBL was bought up to believe that JB was his grandfather to save everyones face but I reserve final judgement until I can find a Will that supports the 1200 pounds originating from JB's father or JBL's maternal grandfather.
In my view it is likely that JB as mayor of Worcester was a self made man and generated the wealth not his father.

Just a point re the JB legacies. Elizabeth only got the use of the 1200pounds for her life and upon her decease it was to pass to her son JBL along with other legacies for JBL.
As you say "JBL says he is due revisionary interest from the 1200 from his grandfathers will ".
As we know Benjamin Lloyd of Hanley Castle did not die until 1834 aged 90years so cant be the grandfather in question.

Funny you should say that as Mrs Harris's son John Byron was actually John Ballard Byron!

Re the religion. If JBL's father was a Presbytarian then it would appear that it was not a Hanley Castle Lloyd related to my lot as they were all baptists!

Hi all,
Here's my postulation having seen all the info to date and particularly the Will of John Ballard a prominent person in Worcester. He had a Will in which he left money to a married woman and her son JBL (no relationship mentioned to either which is unusual). He also was an Anglican not a Baptist.
Scenario One.
Elizabeth Collins wife of Benjamin Lloyd marriage 1802 became pregnant to John Ballard in 1807 and had a son JBL.
Scenario Two.
Elizabeth mother of JBL was not Elizabeth Collins of Benjamin Lloyd marriage of 1802 but was single lady who got pregnant to JB in 1807 and was married off to a Benjamin Lloyd whose marriage certificate is not yet to hand.

In both scenarios there were no other JB children nor were there any Benjamin Lloyd children.
It is very very rare that a substantial portion of a Will is left to a married person whose relationship to the deceased is not specified/stated in the Will.
I suggest that Elizabeth after getting pregnant to JB married Benjamin Lloyd for convienience and protection for both her and the fathers name.
Benjamin left and went to live in Heligoland/Russia soon after.
What is a good clue is that JB left money also to JBL via Elizabeth.
It was common to leave a few $ to staff but that relationship was always stated. JBL was christened in the Anglican church not a Baptist chapel of which the Lloyds of Hanley Castle were strong members.
Thus in either scenario JBL has no Lloyd blood.
Happy to bat this around, look forward to hearing from all.

I have asked the Archives what the cost of copying the whole file etc and posting to NZ.
So you can consider taking a breath and awaiting their reply. Unless you know a Worcester city person who could go into the Office and ask.
They may say its closed for access to records until the new office opens in July.

A few years ago the Records Office shifted many records from their office to the Worc Library and Family History Centre.
I believe they would be at the Records Office(Archives).
Best to emailthe librarian.

I have found the best way is to visit the records office and go thru the parish registers of all the local parishes in case they moved around especially in Worcester city. In this case it would be Upton(hanley), Worcester, Liverpool.
If they were strong Baptists the records may be in the Baptist Chapel minute books and they are often not in the public arena. In the Upton minute books they entered each year or so the list of parishioners which was abig help. I am sure due to JBL life style he would feature in the minute books if he was not evicted from the Chapel(they called it  "REMOVED"). You could get removed for small misdemeanors particularly drinking.
Not sure if JBL remained a Baptist. The Worc office is cloded until July.
