Families associated with the property
- Lloyd: The Lloyd family was living at Baycroft during the German Occupation. In 1940 an application was made to postpone military service for John Durnford Lloyd (1914- ). Presumably this failed because he was not registered there in 1941 when the occupants were Ada Emily Lloyd, nee Wadge (1874- ) and Barbara Elizabeth Durnford Lloyd (1912- ). Katherine Ann Durnford Lloyd (1940- ) was registered as a child on the back of Ada Lloyd's registration form. John and Barbara were Ada Lloyd's children. Her husband Henry Durnford Lloyd, had died on 1 January 1940. It is not clear what relation baby Katherine was to Ada.
