Sir Thomas Mainwaring, 1st Baronet (7 April 1623 – 28 June 1689) was an English politician who sat in the House of Commons in 1660.

In 1660, Mainwaring was elected Member of Parliament for Cheshire in the Convention Parliament.[3] He was created baronet on 22 November 1660 by Charles II on his restoration.[1]

Mainwaring died at the age of 66 and laid to rest in Over Peover. He had married Mary Delves, daughter of Sir Henry Delves, 2nd Baronet, of Dodington and had 6 sons and 6 daughters. His only surviving son John succeeded to the baronetcy and was also an MP.[1]
