Arthur Thomas Lloyd (13 December 1844 – 29 May 1907)[1] was an Anglican bishop. He served as Bishop of Thetford (suffragan bishop to the Bishop of Norwich, 1894–1903) and as Bishop of Newcastle (1903–1907).

Family and education[edit]

The son of Henry W. Lloyd, vicar of Cholsey,[2] and Georgiana Etough,[3] and a brother to F. C. Lloyd (who became vicar of Cholsey, 1890–1895,[4][5] and later vicar of Kew, Surrey),[6] Arthur was educated at Magdalen School and St Edmund Hall, Oxford.[3]

Priest[edit]

Ordained a priest by Samuel Wilberforce, Bishop of Oxford, on 21 February 1869 at St Luke's Maidenhead,[7][8] his first post was as his father's curate at Cholsey (1868–1873), his second was curate-in-charge of Watlington, Oxfordshire (1873–1876),[2] from where he moved to become vicar of Aylesbury[9] (1876–1882). After some time as the first vicar of Newcastle upon Tyne after the parish church became Newcastle Cathedral (he was also an honorary canon and rural dean),[3] he was appointed to be vicar of North Creake and Archdeacon of Lynn, becoming also the first modern[10] Bishop of Thetford (suffragan to the Bishop of Norwich[11]) in 1894.

Bishop[edit]

He was ordained and consecrated a bishop by Edward White Benson, Archbishop of Canterbury, at Westminster Abbey, on St Luke's Day[6] (18 October) 1894.[12] In 1903 he was translated (he was nominated on 11 May and installed on 4 June) to become the third Bishop of Newcastle and died in post four years later.

Death and legacy[edit]

A bachelor who had "always lived" with his sisters, Lloyd died on 29 May 1907 at his sister's house in South Kensington, London.[6] He was buried "as a commoner" on 3 June at St James's parish church, Benwell, where he had lived at Benwell Towers, the bishop's palace; there is, however, an alabaster memorial to him at Newcastle Cathedral.[13] The cathedral memorial was unveiled at a large service on 29 July 1919.[14] On 11 March 2012, Martin Wharton, Bishop of Newcastle, rededicated Lloyd's grave at Benwell, following its restoration after serious neglect.[15]
