David served as Sheriff of Montgomeryshire 1574 and 1587. The book Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire says: "David Lloyd ap Jenkin, was a member of an ancient local family, now extinct, settled for centuries at Berth Lloyd, or Berth Llwyd, a residence pleasantly situated on the right bank of the Severn, about a mile below the town of Llanidloes, and within the limits of the parish of the same name."  Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire, p. 180

"He succeeded his father in the influential local office of mayor of Llanidloes, 10 Eliz. His rising influence in the country was further marked by his selection for the office of escheator in the 12 Eliz, by his appointment of the roll county magistrates 13 Eliz., and by his second appointment as sheriff in 1587...But that our sheriff was certainly considered one of the most important freeholders in that manor, and that he was held in consideration by the great man of the time, the Earl of Leicestershire, is shown by the earl appointing him, in conjunction with Richard Herbert of Parke, and Morgan Glynne of Glynne, his attorney for delivering possession to certain of his feoffees." Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire, p. 182

"Jenkin Lloyd, Esq. was of Berthllwyd. His father, David Lloyd ap Jenkin, the previous sheriff, died during his year of office, the duties of which were doubtless discharged by his son for the unexpired portion of the year 1587." Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire, p. 229

"David Lloyd ap Jenkin was a member of a family who had settled at Berth Llwyd near Llanidloes for generations. His father Jenkin ap Evan ap Philip was Mayor of Llanidloes. David succeeded his father as Mayor and was soon after appointed escheator of Montgomeryshire (an officer appointed by the Lord Treasurer to deal with escheats or cases of property being left with a person dies with no heir). He may also have been deputy steward of the manor of Arwystli. He was appointed one of the attorneys for delivering possession to some of the manor's trustees by the Earl of Leicester. He was Sheriff of Montgomeryshire in 1574 and died during a second term in 1587 when his second son Edward Lloyd was his deputy."  (W.V. Lloyd - the Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire)

David died in 1587.

FAMILY GROUP RECORD OF
LLEWELYN AURDORCHOG

Llewelyn Aurdorchog of Ial, described as "Llewely Aurdorchog, i.e., Llewelyn of the golden chain, lord of Ial, or Yale in Denbighshire" in the book Sheriffs of Montgomeryshire. "The earliest man known to have held the Lordship of Ial was Llewelyn Aurdorchog, born c. 1005.  The commote of Ial is believed to have been a part of the personal holdings of the first Powys dynasty which dates at least from the 4th century Cadell Ddyrnwllg.  Some think Ial was granted to Elgudy and his son, Cynddelw Gam, in the early 10th century when lands east of the Clwyd river and north of the Alun were retaken from Danish squatters. We suspect, however, it was only Ystrad Alun that comprised that grant, Ial being retained by the Powys royal family until the mid-11th century when King Gruffudd ap Llewelyn gave it to his penteulu Llewelyn Aurdorchog.

The pedigree of Llewelyn Aurdorchog is without chronological problems until it reaches the 6th century.  His ancestor Llywarch Hen was born c. 520 to Elidyr Lydanwyn ap Meirchion Gul ap Gwrwst Ledlum ap Ceneu ap Coel Hen. He was a first-cousin of Urien of Rheged ap Cynfarch Oer ap Meirchion Gul and both resided in the far north of Britain before the Saxons took their lands.  Tradition claims he was called Llywarch Hen because he lived over 100 years, finally dying about 634.  At least 25 and up to 32 children are credited to him, only two of which generated known families.  Dwc ap Llywarch Hen, born c. 560, was the direct male ancestor of Merfyn Frych who took Gwynedd from the family of Cunedda in the early 9th century.But the man called Sandde ap Llywarch Hen, the ancestor of Llewelyn Aurdorchog, dates from a generation later. We strongly doubt any men of this era, when most were dead by age 65, lived over 100 years.  It is much more likely this Llywarch was called Hen to distinguish him from a son also named Llywarch, and that it was this son who died c. 634." (www.ancientwalesstudies.org)

Llywelyn Aurdochog (Welsh: "of the Golden Torc, c. 1005 - c. 1065 was a Welsh noble who served as the penteulu (war chief) of Gruffydd ap Llywelyn, and was rewarded with the Lordship of Ial and Ystrad Alud, two commotes in northeast Powys.  Llwylen traced his ancestry to Sandde, a different son of Llwarch Hen from that claimed by the kings of Gwynedd and Deheubarth. (www.wikipedia.com)

Llewelyn had the following son:
 

*1. Rhys Goch.
