Thomas Lynn Bristowe (31 March 1833 – 6 June 1892) was an English stock broker and Conservative Party politician

Bristowe was the third son of John Syer Bristowe, a doctor of Camberwell, and his wife Mary Chesshyre of Rock Savage, Cheshire. He was educated privately and became a stock broker. He was a partner in the firm of Bristowe Bros. of the London Stock Exchange.[1]

In 1885 Bristowe was elected Member of Parliament for Norwood. Bristowe was very active in a campaign to raise funds to restore Brockwell Hall, a part of Brockwell Park which had come into the ownership of Lambeth Council. However, he died of a heart attack on the steps of Brockwell Hall during the grand opening ceremony in June 1892.[2]

Bristowe married Frances Ellen Mason in 1857. They lived at Dulwich Hill House, Denmark Hill, Surrey. Bristowe was buried at the cemetery in Norwood.
