Thomas Mainwaring Penson (1818–64) was an English surveyor and architect.

He and his brother, Richard Kyrke Penson, then trained in their father's practice. He designed buildings in the area of the practice, including stations for the Shrewsbury and Chester Railway. He was appointed as County Surveyor of Cheshire and moved to Chester, Cheshire. Here he laid out Overleigh Cemetery in 1848–50. This has been designated by English Heritage at Grade II in the National Register of Historic Parks and Gardens.

    to remember and a list
    of things I want to forget,
    but I see they are the same list.

    One of the surest evidences of an elevated taste is the power of enjoying works of impassioned terrorism, in poetry, and painting. The man who can look at impassioned subjects of terror with a feeling of exultation may be certain he has an elevated taste.
    Benjamin Haydon (1786–1846)
