Thomas Farnfold (1600 – 19 March 1643) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons variously between 1624 and 1643.

In 1623 Farnfold was elected Member of Parliament for Steyning, and was re-elected in 1625. He was re-elected in 1628 and held the seat until 1629 when King Charles decided to rule without parliament for eleven years. In April 1640, he was re-elected MP for Steyning in the Short Parliament and again in November 1640 for the Long Parliament.[1]

Farnfold owned property in Sussex including Churchmeadow, Gatwickes, a water mill and lands and Wickham Farm Steyning[2]
