Colonel Lewis Vivian Loyd DL (14 November 1852 – 21 September 1908)[1][2] was a British Conservative Party politician.

He was elected at the 1892 general election as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Chatham in Kent,[3] but did not seek re-election in 1895, and did not stand for Parliament again.[3]

He was married on 14 August 1879 to Lady Mary Sophia Hely Hutchinson (1854–1936), daughter of 4th Earl of Donoughmore,[4] a writer and translator[5] with whom he had three children: two sons and a daughter.[6] From his uncle Samuel Jones Loyd, 1st Baron Overstone (1796–1883)[7] he inherited the manor of Withybrook, Wolvey in Warwickshire, and the estate passed on his death to his oldest son Richard Lewis Loyd.[8]
