Henry James Tollit (1835–1904)[1] was an English architect who practised in Oxford.

Tollit trained under William Wilkinson[1] (1819–1901) and was in practice by 1870.[2] He worked in partnership with Edwin Dolby in 1877–78.[3] Tollit was also the County Surveyor for Oxfordshire.[1]

His son Reginald James Tollit (born 1870) became an architect and had his own practice in Cambridge.[2] "H.J. Tollit and Lee" are recorded as the firm of architects of the Morris Motors factory built in Longwall Street, Oxford in 1910[3][4] but this was six years after H.J. Tollit's death.
