John Chew Thomas (October 15, 1764 – May 10, 1836) was an American politician.

Born in Perryville, Maryland, Thomas attended private schools and graduated from the University of Pennsylvania at Philadelphia in 1783. He moved to "Fairland" in Anne Arundel County, Maryland, around 1789, studied law, and was admitted to the bar in Philadelphia on December 15, 1787 but did not engage in extensive practice. He was elected as a Federalist to the Sixth Congress, and served from March 4, 1799 to March 3, 1801, declining to be a candidate for reelection in 1800. He moved to Pennsylvania, where he lived until his death near Leiperville. He is interred in the Friends Cemetery near Chester, Pennsylvania.
