Thomas Sprott or Spott (fl. 1292) was an English Benedictine chronicler, a monk of St Augustine's Abbey, Canterbury.
Sprott wrote a history of St Augustine's Abbey. His work was used and acknowledged by the chroniclers Thomas Elmham and William Thorne.Thorne copies him freely to 1228, where he says Sprott's share ends. He elsewhere stated that Sprott's work ended in 1272, a point that is unclear in surviving manuscripts (which had later additions, and some damage). John Leland mentioned a chronicle by Sprott that extended to 1272, which Casimir Oudin stated was among the manuscripts of Walter Cope.
