Thomas Angell (29 December 1692 – 19 September 1767) was a Norwegian merchant, estate owner, mine owner and philanthropist. He was born in Trondheim; the son of merchant Albert Lorenzen Angell. Angell inherited a large fortune from his parents, and donated this fortune to a charity trust fund through his will. The trust fund is administered by the Angell Foundations. A marble bust of Angell was made by Hans Michelsen in 1845.[1][2]
