Thomas Ryley (fl. 1744-1754) was a British mezzotint engraver operating out of premises in Water Lane, Fleet Street, London. It is possible that he was an apprentice of John Faber II. Ryley worked principally on portraits, including those of Queen Charlotte, Frederick the Third of Prussia, and the Prince and Princess of Wales.
