Sir Thomas Foote, 1st Baronet (1598 – 12 October 1687) was a wealthy Citizen and grocer of London. He was Lord Mayor of London in 1649. During the Protectorate he knighted by the Lord Protector (Cromwell) Oliver Cromwell in 1657, and after the Restoration (England) he was made a baronet by Charles II.
In 1646 Foote was made a Sheriff of London and in 1649 he was elected Lord Mayor of London. He represented London in the First and Second Protectorate Parliaments, and was knighted by the Lord Protector Oliver Cromwell on 5 December 1657 (this honour passed into oblivion at the restoration of the monarchy in May 1660).
Foote died 12 October 1687, in his 89th year and was buried in All Saints Church, West Ham, (then in Essex). As he left no sons to succeed him, his son-in-law, Arthur Onslow succeed to baronetcy.
