Thomas L. Winthrop (March 6, 1760 – February 22, 1841) was a Massachusetts politician who served as the 13th Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts from 1826 to 1833. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1813.[1]

He was a member of the Dudley-Winthrop family, a line that originates with Thomas Dudley—founder of Massachusetts and Winthrop's great-great-grandfather— and which, among other politicians, includes John Kerry, Winthrop's great-great-great-grandson. Winthrop was born in New London, Connecticut and died in Boston.

In 1785 he married Elizabeth Bowdoin Temple, daughter of Sir John Temple (diplomat), the first British envoy to the United States.

He was a member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery Company of Massachusetts and also served as a state representative and senator.
