Griffith Lloyd (died 1586)[1] was Principal of Jesus College, Oxford from 1572 to 1586.[2] He was also Regius Professor of Civil Law from 1577 to his death.[3]

He was originally from Lampeter, Wales where the Lloyds of Maesyfelin were a well-respected family.[4] He was one of the first benefactors to leave land to the college, with his bequest of some land in Cardiganshire taking effect after his widow's death in 1615.[5]
