Rev. Thomas Beames(1815 – 1864) was a Preacher and Assistant of St. James, Westminster.

After witnessing some of the extreme poverty within Victorian London he compiled his own eye-witness accounts of the most notorious of the slum areas, known as rookeries. He published these observations in 1852 in the book The Rookeries of London.
