Thomas Henry Wilson (10 June 1841 31 January 1929) was an English first-class cricketer. Wilson occasionally played as a wicketkeeper.

First-class cricket is an official classification of the highest-standard international or domestic matches in the sport of cricket. A first-class match is of three or more days' scheduled duration between two sides of eleven players each and is officially adjudged to be worthy of the status by virtue of the standard of the competing teams. Matches must allow for the teams to play two innings each although, in practice, a team might play only one innings or none at all.

Wilson made his debut in county cricket for Huntingdonshire in 1862 against North Northamptonshire. Wilson played non first-class games for Huntingdonshire between 1862 and 1869, with Wilson's final match for Huntingdonshire coming against Buckinghamshire in 1869.
