Arthur Loyd

Arthur Thomas Loyd (19 April 1882 – 8 November 1944) was a Conservative Party politician in England.

Born in Northampton, Loyd belonged to a Welsh family, several members of which settled in Berkshire. His uncle, Archie Kirkman Loyd, was the Conservative Member of Parliament for Abingdon from 1895 to 1906 and from 1916 to 1918. In 1920, Loyd inherited Lockinge House from Lady Wantage,[1] the husband of his father's second cousin.

Loyd was subsequently elected MP for Abingdon at a by-election in 1921, and represented the division until he stood down at the 1923 general election.

He later served as Lord Lieutenant of Berkshire from 1935 until his death in Stepney in 1944.
