About Sampson Lloyd, I

Charles' son, Sampson Lloyd I left Dolobran to escape the continued persecution of Quakers. He went to live in Birmingham, a much safer place for Quakers at the time, as it was not a corporate borough. (Under the Five Mile Act of 1665, Quakers and other nonconformist ministers were forbidden from living within five miles of a corporate borough). Sampson I had married Mary, the daughter of Quaker ironmonger Ambrose Crowley, and worked in the iron business himself. His eventual headquarters were in Edgbaston Street where he founded one of the largest slitting mills for making nails. In due course Sampson Lloyd’s branch of the family became responsible for the operation of the largest steel foundry in the British Isles. Source
