Lord Cornwallis, who led the Brish forces in America, was a cousin of the Llewellyns.
John Llewellyn adherred to the Anglican Church and supported the King of England to the extent that he formed a group of associates of his persuasion. He was opposed to statements written into a state constitution and was fearful of changes
that would weaken the Anglican Church. He wrote his own beliefs and formulated oaths for friends to swear in support of the King of England.
Captain John Llewellyn quartered the British forces and opened his house to the British officers when they captured the town of Halifax. He also gave supplies to the British troops when they were in Halifax County and for this was tried for
"high treason against the colonists." He was found guilty and sentenced to be hanged.
While he was being held prisoner in Edenton, Llewellyn's wife Mary and one of his "planned victims", Nathan Mayo, were successful in securing a pardon for him from Governor Richard Caswell.
John Llewellyn lived to be a very old man.
