Thomas Amory

Thomas Amory (1691(?) – November 25, 1788) was a writer of Irish descent.

In 1755 he published "Memoirs containing the lives of several ladies of Great Britain, a History of Antiquities and Observations on the Christian Religion", which was followed by the "Life of John Buncle, Esq." (1756), practically a continuation. The contents of these works are of the most miscellaneous description - philology, natural science, theology, and, in fact, whatever occurred to the writer, treated without any system, but with occasional originality and felicity of diction. The author, who was probably more or less insane, is described as having a very peculiar aspect, with the manner of a gentleman, scarcely ever stirring abroad except at dusk. He was a fanatical Unitarian, and reached the age of 97.
