Thomas Watson (1 March 16373 June 1717) was an English clergyman, Church of England Bishop of St. David's (1677-1683). A supporter of King James II, he opposed the Revolution of 1688 but was ultimately deprived of his ecclesiastical offices for the offence of simony and gaoled for his failure to pay his legal costs. After his release, he reputedly died very rich.
