Sampson Lloyd I and Mary (née Crowley, sister of Ambrose Crowley), Quakers of Welsh origin, moved from their Leominster, Herefordshire farm in 1698 to Edgbaston Street in Birmingham. After the death of Sampson I in 1725 his sons Charles and Sampson II bought the Town Mill and traded in iron. Sampson II (1699–1779) also bought a forge in Burton upon Trent.
