Thomas Hall (1610-1665) was an English clergyman and ejected
minister. He was son of Richard Hall, clothier, by his wife
Elizabeth (Bonner), and was born in St. Andrew's parish, Worcester,
about 22 July 1610. He was educated at the King's School,
Worcester, under Henry Bright (d. 1626), one of the most celebrated
schoolmasters of the day. In 1624 he entered Balliol College,
Oxford, as an exhibitioner. Finding himself under 'a careless
tutor, ' he removed to the newly founded Pembroke College as a
pupil of Thomas Lushington. He graduated B.A. on 7 February 1629.
Returning to Worcestershire, he became teacher of a private school,
and preached in the chapels of several hamlets in the parish of
Kings Norton, of which his brother, John Hall, vicar of Bromsgrove,
was perpetual curate. At this period he conformed, but attendance
at the puritan lecture, maintained at Birmingham, contributed to
make him a presbyterian. He became curate at Kings Norton under his
brother, who soon resigned the living in his favour. The living was
of little value, but Hall obtained the mastership of the grammar
school, founded by Edward VI.
