Notebook of Emily Lloyd of Lampeter
March 1871-September 1872According to the 1871 census, Emily Ann Lloyd lived with her parents, older sister and uncle, above the National Provincial Bank in Lampeter, where her father was the bank manager. A native of Hay, Breconshire, William A. Lloyd had moved to Lampeter with his wife, Elizabeth, who was born in Margam. At the time of the census, Emily was 9 years old and her sister Hessie 10.Emily has carefully copied out the letters she has sent to various friends and family between 10 March 1871 and 24 September [1872
. This may have been an exercise set by her governess, Sopia[sic] Humphreys from Aberystwyth.]Emily writes of her day to day activities and has much to say about her pets, including a monkey. Unfortunately, all the animals seem to die during the period covered by the letters. Although most of the letters are written from Lampeter, the family move to Conwy and the later letters are written from there.
