Sir Thomas Edward Winnington (1780 – 24 September 1839) was an English Whig and Liberal politician who sat in the House of Commons in two periods between 1807 and 1837.

Winnington was the son of Sir Edward Winnington, 2nd Baronet of Stanford Court, Stanford-on-Teme, Worcestershire. He inherited the Stanford Court estate from his father in 1805 and was appointed High Sheriff of Worcestershire for 1806–07.

Winnington was elected Member of Parliament (MP) for Droitwich in 1807 and held the seat until 1816. He was re elected in the 1831 general election and held the seat for a year. At the 1832–33 general election he was elected MP for Bewdley and held the seat until 1837, when he was succeeded there by his son Thomas.[1]

He married Joanna, the daughter of John Taylor of Moseley Hall, with whom he had 3 sons and 4 daughters.
