Thomas Huttoft, brother of Henry Huttoft, was a 16th century merchant known to have been active in the years 1515-1554. He was water bailiff in 1522-23, court bailiff in 1523-24 and sheriff in 1527-8. From 1534 he was weigher of wools in the town and also held the Tin House in Westgate Street. In 1522 he owned a ship called the Mary James.
He lived in a corporation tenement on the west side of Bull Street and his will of 1544, in which he apportions his possessions amongst his children, shows it to have been luxuriously furnished.
