Thomas Lawranson (or Lawrenson) (fl. 1760–1777) was an Irish painter.
Lawranson signed the roll of the Incorporated Society of Artists in 1766, and is first styled a fellow of the society in 1774. He lived in Great Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London. A portrait of Lawranson was painted and engraved in mezzotint by his son William Lawranson.
