Descended from a Belgian musical family, the first Jean-Baptiste Loeillet, generally known as ‘John of London’, seems to have settled in the latter city about 1705, serving first as an oboist at the Queen’s Theatre, Haymarket. He had concerts given in his London house, introducing Corelli’s concerti grossi for the first time to the London public.

Loeillet’s compositions include sets of trio sonatas and suites for harpsichord.
