I had to laugh when your note came up to my internet search because I am trying to find Hugh Lyte (died 1617 in Crewkerne, Somerset,Engand) who is the father of STEPHEN LYTE!!
You mention a book with a listing of all the Lytes. Did it happen to list my Hugh? I wondered if he is the son of William Lyte who left a PCC will in 1559 as of Northover, Somerset where he states he has a young son Hugh and also owns land in Crewkerne. If so - how does he relate to the Lytes of Lytes Carey etc in Somerset
