Sergeant Thomas Spencer (March 29, 1607 – September 11, 1687) was a notable early settler of Hartford, Connecticut.
He was born in Stotfold, Bedfordshire, England to Gerard Spencer and Alice Whitbread. He was a freeman in Cambridge, Massachusetts in 1634, and moved to Hartford in 1637. He served in the Pequot War and was a 'sergeant of the trainband' in 1650. His name appears on the Founders Monument as a Founder of Hartford. He eventually accumulated a substantial amount of property in Hartford.
