Thomas Amory, an English author, born about 1691, died Nov. 25, 1788. He was educated as a physician, but lived chiefly in retirement on a small income. In 1755 he published "Memoirs of several Ladies of Great Britain," all of whom were, like himself, zealous Unitarians; and in 1750 appeared the first volume of his better known and very curious "Life of John Buncle, Esq.," in which he is supposed to have sketched his own picture. The second volume was published in 1766. He was a man of learning, ability, and deep religious convictions, but very eccentric.
