Origin

graphic variant; in late Middle English þ (see thorn) came to be written identically with y, so that the could be written ye. This spelling (usually ye) was kept as a convenient abbreviation in handwriting until the 19th century, and in printers' types during the 15th and 16th century, but it was never pronounced as “ye.”.
