Thomas Milles (1550 k. –1626?), angol régiségbúvár, herold.

Vámhivatali tisztségviselő volt. Részt vett William Camden Britannia című művének szerkesztésében. Az ő, Camden és William Martyn (ker. 1562 - 1617) jogász, történész tévedéseit élesen kritizálta Ralph Brooke. Lefordította Robert Glover (1544-1588), Nobilitas politica et civilis (London, 1608) című művét. Részt vett az ARXAIO-PLOUTOS című fordítás és több mű kivonatát tartalmazó gyűjtemény szerkesztésében, mely a gallok, spanyolok és olaszok szokásait, kulturális hagyományait taglalta. Milles ehhez címertani és az angol szokásokra vonatkozó anyagot szolgáltatott.

Heraldikai műve a The Catalogue of Honour, or Treasure of true Nobilitie (London, 1610), melyet nagyrészt anyai nagybátyja, Robert Glover, Somerset heroldja (1571-1588) szerkesztett. Érdekessége, hogy Charles Blount, Mountjoy bárója törvénytelen gyermekének képét szinte az összes példányból kivágták. A művet Jaggard, Shakespeare kiadója nyomtatta.
