Rev. Thomas Walker Horsfield FSA (1792 Sheffield - 1837 Chowbent, Lancashire), was an English Nonconformist minister, topographer, and historian best known for his works The History and Antiquities of Lewes (1824-26) and The History, Antiquities and Topography of the County of Sussex (1835).

Thomas was the eldest of six children of James Horsfield and Ann Hewett who were married on 29 July 1790 in St Peter's Cathedral, Sheffield, Yorkshire. [1]

Thomas was minister at the Westgate Chapel in Lewes, later changed from Presbyterian to Unitarian. He found time from his ministerial duties to take on pupils, and was respected for his intellectual achievements. His History of Sussex in two volumes became the standard reference work for later Sussex historians.
