Thomas Burke (c. 1747 – 2 December 1781) was the Irish-born Governor of North Carolina during the American Revolutionary War.

In 1781, he was captured by the British colonels Hector McNeill and David Fanning. The Colonial Assassins launched a rescue attempt known as the Battle of Lindley's Mill, and assassinated McNeill, but failed to retrieve him.
