LYNE, RICHARD (fl. 1570–1600), painter and engraver, was one of the earliest native artists in England whose works have been preserved. He was one of the engravers employed by Matthew Parker [q. v.], archbishop of Canterbury, and worked for him, in company with Remigius Hogenberg [q. v.], at Cambridge and at Lambeth Palace. It is probable that the interesting portrait of Parker at Lambeth, of which a small engraving in copper was made by Hogenberg, was painted by Lyne. Lyne drew and engraved at Parker's expense a very interesting map of the university of Cambridge, for Dr. John Caius's ‘History of the University,’ published in 1574. He also engraved in the same year a large genealogical chart of the history of Great Britain (partly engraved by Hogenberg), which appeared in Alexander Neville's ‘De Furoribus Norfolciensium Ketto Duce’ in 1575. Lyne is mentioned by Francis Meres in his ‘Palladis Tamia’ (1598) as among the leading painters of the time.

LYNEDOCH, Lord. [See Graham, Thomas, 1748–1843, general.]

LYNFORD or LINFORD, THOMAS (1650–1724), divine, son of Samuel Lynford of Cambridge, where he was born in 1650, was educated at Newark and Bury St. Edmunds, and admitted as a sizar at Christ's College, Cambridge, 16 July 1666. He is described in the admission book as ‘optimæ spei juvenis.’ He graduated B.A. in 1670–1, and proceeded M.A. in 1674, and S.T.P. in 1689, being also incorporated M.A. of Oxford on 11 July 1676. He was elected fellow of Christ's in 1675, and was also tutor from 1676 to 1685. He gave money to case with stone the front of the college, which had become dilapidated. In 1689, when he married, he was described as ‘lately the ingenious prevaricator of Cambridge’ (Foster, Marriage Licenses). Lynford was instituted rector of St. Edmund, Lombard Street, on 18 Dec. 1685 (Newcourt), and became chaplain in ordinary to William and Mary. In 1700 he was appointed canon of Westminster, and was installed on 6 May, and on 9 Sept. 1709 was collated to the archdeaconry of Barnstaple, an office which he held till his death on 11 Aug. 1724. He married by license, dated 25 Nov. 1689, Elizabeth Dillingham of St. Giles-in-the-Fields, London.

Lynford contributed the ninth note to ‘Popish Notes of the Church examined and confuted’ (Bishop Gibson, Preservative against Popery, 1738, fol., iii. 360, x. 202, 372), and was the author of ‘Some Dialogues between Mr. Godden and others, with reflections upon a book called “Pax Vobis,”’ 1687, 8vo. He also published several sermons, one of which was preached before the king at St. James's, on 12 Dec. 1714.
