Edward Lloyd of Pengwern (c.1710-95) was created a baronet in 1778. He was much admired by contemporaries for his planting of 442,000 trees, mostly oaks, in his Flintshire and Caernarvonshire estates. The relaxed, informal pose, appropriate to a country gentleman, is characteristic of Wilson's approach to portraiture.
