LYLE, William, poet, born in Edinburgh, Scotland, 17 November, 1822. He was taken at the age of twelve to Glasgow, where he was subsequently apprenticed to a potter. He continued to study by himself and in night-schools, made rapid progress, and on completing his apprenticeship soon obtained work as a journeyman. In 1862 he was offered a place in England, and while there he published various poems in the Scottish dialect. Among these was one entitled " The Grave of Three Hundred," having reference to the Barnsley mine disaster. It was issued in book-form and had an extensive sale. Mr. Lyle subsequently came to the United States, and became manager in a manufacturing business at Rochester, New York, where he has since resided. His poems are well known to Scottish residents both in this country and in Canada. Besides writing in the Scottish dialect, Mr. Lyle is the author of several English poems, including his " Diotima." He has also published "The Martyr Queen and other Poems" (New York, 1888).
