Major General Edward Lloyd was the 11th Royal Governor of Maryland from 1709 to 1714. He succeeded John Seymour, being elected President of the Council when the senior member of the council, Colonel Francis Jenkins, failed to assert his rights of seniority. Lloyd was succeeded by John Hart. Lloyd spawned a long line of Edward Lloyd's who were active in Maryland politics, including Edward Lloyd IV, a delegate to the Continental Congress, and Edward Lloyd V, who would serve as Governor of Maryland from 1809 to 1811.
