LLOYD-JONES, Conway

1846 - 1897

Conway Llewellyn Lloyd-Jones, was born at St Bees, Whitehaven, Cumbria in 1846, son of Revd David Lloyd Jones (1817-1863) and his wife Catherine Julia née Francis, who married at Bloomsbury, London on 30 November 1843. In 1851, a 4 year old, living at Parsonage House, Downham, Clitheroe, Lancashire with his parents, 33 year old David, curate of Downham, born at Plas Madoc, Denbigh, and 37 year old Catherine, born in London. His father, as rector of Stainton le Dale, Lincoln, died on 1 November 1863, aged 45 and in 1866 Conway was appointed a tempory clerk in the Savings Bank Department of the Civil Service but by 1881, a 34 year old 'landscape artist', living at 'Rowlands', Wimborne Minster, Dorset with his 67 year old widowed mother Catherine and two unmarried siblings, Amy 32 and Idwal 29. Lloyd-Jones was a member and exhibitor at the Ipswich Art Club 1878-1895 and may have had a 'holiday home' in the county and in 1881 exhibited from Beauchamp House, Wimborne Minster, thirteen pictures including an oil 'Heigh-Ho! the Holly' and watercolours 'Cold Hill Firs', 'Countisbury in a Fog' and 'Ivybridge', in 1882 he had eleven pictures on display, in 1883 seven, two oils 'Lake Edwa' and 'Returning from School' and five watercolour including 'Wild Wales, and in 1884 four oils 'Scene on the Stour, Dorset', 'Autumn Afternoon', 'Two for Joy' and 'Scene on the Dart'. These seem to have been his last at Ipswich as on 24 March 1884, under the Bankruptcy Act, was held the first meeting of his creditors. He also seems to have been a bit of an inventor as in January 1885 he applied for patent 13245 'for improvements in lids for boxes, cases, barrels or baskets, on in and connected with the means of fastening the same'. He was buried at St James the Less, Pangboourne, Berkshire on 23 February 1897, aged 50.
