Andrew Thomson (1814 at Sanquhar – 1901) was a British biographer, well known for his books on the lives of pre-eminent ministers, and for his book on his travels in the Holy Land and noted for his preface to the Scottish poet, Robert Pollok's "Tales of the Covenanters".

Thomson should not be confused with the 'other' Andrew Thomson, also of Edinburgh, who was prominent in the Disruption of 1843. This Thomson was known as of "Broughton Place" and the other one was of "Free St. George's".[1]
