Thomas Pitt (July 5 1653 – April 28 1726) was a British merchant involved in trade with India. He at first came into conflict with the British East India Company, however this was settled and the company appointed him governor of Madras.
He bought a diamond which he later sold for considerable profit, which earned him the nickname "Diamond Pitt". He was married to an Anglo-Indian lady, Jane Innis.
