Thomas Eyre (1670–1715), was an English Jesuit.
Eyre, of the family settled at Eastwell, Leicestershire, was born on 23 December 1670. He studied at the college of St. Omer, was admitted into the Society of Jesus in 1687, and was professed of the four vows on 8 March 1705–6.
He was chaplain to the court of James II at St. Germain; became professor of theology at Liège (1701–4), and in 1712 was socius to the provincial of his order. He died in London on 9 November 1715. Dr. Kirk believed him to be concerned in a biography of James II.
