Summary:Fragments and miscellaneous loose recipes found within the page of the Lloyd-Tilghman family cookbooks, circa 1852-1892. The Lloyd family lived at Wye House near Easton in Talbot Count, Maryland. Wye House appears on the National Register of Historic Places and is classified as a National Historic Landmark. The creator of many of the recipes is unknown; they may have been written by Mary Lloyd, wife of Edward Lloyd VII, contemporary owner of Wye House, or added later by their descendants. A one page fragment appears to be part of the Lloyd-Tilghman family cookbook dated circa 1852-1880. An inscription on one side reads "Mary Lloyd, Presqu'ile, 1852." Presqu'ile is the French word for peninsula, and possibly refers to the location of Wye House on Maryland's Eastern Shore. Several recipes are written on stationary printed with addresses in Baltimore, Maryland. Recipes include six recipes for tea punch and one for champagne punch. One sheet lists nine recipes attributed to "Harriet (cook)", "Dar [Ellis or Ellie?]", "[Moses?]", and "Waverly". The sheet is labeled "Grandmother Lloyd" in different handwriting, and it is unclear who "Grandmother" refers to. The sources for the recipes are possibly slaves at the Wye House plantation. Other recipes attributed to: Miss Lizzie Lloyd (possibly Elizabeth Phoebe Lloyd, daughter of Mary and Edward Lloyd VII), Mrs. George Gibson, Mrs. Edgeworth Bird, Mrs. [Proome?], Mrs. John McF Bergland, Miss Mary C Stokes, Mrs. Bradley T. Johnson, [Carmen Jessica Johnson?], and Mrs. Ben Howard.
