Thomas Davies (British politician)
Sir Thomas Davies (15 August 1858 – 17 November 1939) was a British Conservative Party politician. He was the Member of Parliament (MP) for the Cirencester and Tewkesbury division of Gloucestershire from 1918 to 1929.
From 1899 to 1910 he was a member of Gloucestershire County Council for Campden, and was listed in 1922 an Alderman of the Council and Chairman of Cirencester War Pension Committee. He was at some point the agent for Gloucestershire Conservative Association.
He was elected at the 1918 general election as MP for Cirencester and Tewkesbury, standing as a Coalition Unionist (i.e. a supporter of the Conservative-dominated coalition government led by the Liberal David Lloyd George). He was re-elected at the next three general elections, and retired from the House of Commons at the 1929 general election.
