Rev. John Lloyd DCL (died 20 February 1607) was Dean of St Asaph, a judge of the High Court of Admiralty and one of the founding fellows of Jesus College, Oxford.


Lloyd obtained his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Oxford in 1542. He was a fellow of All Souls College. He received the degrees of BCL in 1554 and DCL in 1565. In April 1559, he was appointed Dean of St Asaph but was removed from this position in November the same year.[1] In 1571, Lloyd was named in the charter granted by Queen Elizabeth I as one of the eight founding fellows of Jesus College, Oxford. He became an advocate in 1566, and later was appointed as a judge of the High Court of Admiralty.[2] Before Jesus College was founded, Lloyd had been Principal of White Hall, Oxford.[3]
