Thomas Jane (sometimes Jan; died September 1500) was a medieval Bishop of Norwich.

Jane was Rector of the Church of Saint Mary the Virgin in Hayes, Middlesex from 1473 to 1499, immediately before his consecration as bishop.[citation needed] He was collated Archdeacon of Essex on 21 July 1480[1] and nominated to the bishopric on 14 June 1499 and was consecrated later in 1499, probably on 20 October. From 1496 to 1500 he was also a Canon of Windsor.[2]

He died in September 1500.[3]
