Thomas Bromley, 2nd Baron Montfort known and recorded as Lord Montford and Lord Montford (January 1733 – 24 October 1799), was a British politician.[1]

Bromley was the only son of Henry Bromley, 1st Baron Montfort, and Frances Wyndham, daughter of Thomas Wyndham and sister and heiress of Sir Francis Wyndham, 4th Baronet, of Trent, Somerset. He was returned to parliament as one of two representatives for Cambridge in 1754, a seat he held until the following year,[2] when he entered the House of Lords on succeeding at the age of 21 his father who had committed suicide. His seat was won in an uncontested election by Charles Cadogan raised to the peerage as 1st Earl Cadogan and who had married his sole sibling.

Lord Montfort married Mary Anne Blake, sister of MP Sir Patrick Blake, 1st Baronet, of Langham, Suffolk at Marylebone in 1772. He bought a seven-bedroom home in Sunbury on Thames facing the Thames to serve as his home whilst on business in London in 1783. The house was later acquired by Captain Lendy and has become Lendy Place. An adjoining road is named Montford Close on part of its gardens.[3] He died in October 1799, aged 66, and was succeeded in the barony by his only son, Henry.
