Thomas Brand Hollis (1719–1804), born Thomas Brand, was a British political radical and dissenter.
In 1748-9 he toured Europe with the political philosopher and writer Thomas Hollis who, on his death in 1774, left his estate at Corscombe and Halstock in Dorset to Brand on condition that Brand added the name of Hollis to his own name. He was supportive of the revolutionary activity in the American colonies.
In July 1786, Brand Hollis entertained at his home in Essex his friend John Adams, the first American ambassador to the Court of St. James's, who stayed for several days, as recorded in his memoirs.
