Earl Lloyd George of Dwyfor


Earl Lloyd George of Dwyfor

Earl Lloyd George of Dwyfor is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1945 for the famous Liberal politician David Lloyd George. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1908 to 1915 and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1916 to 1922. Lloyd George was made Viscount Gwynedd, of Dwyfor in the County of Caernarvon, at the same time as he was given the earldom. This title is also in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. As of 2007 the titles are held by his grandson, the third Earl, who succeeded his father in 1968.

Two of Lloyd George's children also gained distinction. His second son the Hon. Gwilym Lloyd George was Home Secretary from 1954 to 1957 and was created Viscount Tenby in 1957. His daughter Megan Lloyd George represented Anglesey and Carmarthen in the House of Commons.

Both Gwynedd and Dwyfor are ancient Welsh language placenames. Their use in the titles was prior to their revival in 1974 for a local government county and district, respectively.

The family seat is Ffynone, near Newcastle Emlyn in Carmarthenshire.
