Lye, Thomas an English Nonconformist clergyman, flourished about the middle of the 17th century. While minister at All-Hallows, Lombard Street, London, he was called upon to take oath against the king; refusing, he was ejected in 1651; reinstated, he was once more expelled, because of his refusal to take the oath of uniformity, in 1662. He was very popular among Puritan families. His Sermons were published (Lond. 1660, 4to; 1662; 1681). See Allibone, Dict. of Brit. and Am. Authors, volume 2, s.v.; Stoughton, Eccles. Hist. of Engl.
