General Thomas Garth (1744–1829) was a British Army officer and chief equerry to King George III of the United Kingdom.

He was the son of John Garth MP, and Rebecca, daughter of John Brompton and granddaughter of Sir Richard Raynsford, Lord Chief Justice of the King's Bench.

He is believed to have been the father of an illegitimate child born in 1800, also called Thomas, whose mother was rumored to be Princess Sophia of the United Kingdom, one of the King's daughters. The assumption that she was the mother is challenged by Anthony Camp in Royal Mistresses and Bastards (London, 2007, pages 313–23).

Garth rented Ilsington House at Puddletown, which was often visited by the royal family en route for Weymouth.
