      Col. Edward Lloyd was a slave owner. One of his most famous slaves was Frederick Douglass who spent part of his childhood as one of Lloyd's slaves. In his autobiography about his life as a slave, Frederick Douglass wrote the following:

      “To all these complaints, no matter how unjust, the slave must answer never a word. Colonel Lloyd could not brook any contradiction from a slave. When he spoke, a slave must stand, listen, and tremble; and such was literally the case. I have seen Colonel Lloyd make old Barney, a man between fifty and sixty years of age, uncover his bald head, kneel down upon the cold, damp ground, and receive upon his naked and toil-worn shoulders more than thirty lashes at the time.”
