Thomas Evans Bell (1825–1887) was an English Indian army officer and writer. In 1841 he went to Madras in the East India Company’s service. Bell was strongly critical of the East India Company, and its impact on peasant proprietorship in India. After the Indian Rebellion of 1857, Bell lost his position in Nagpur, for complaining over the head of his immediate superior about the treatment of the Ranis of the Nagpur kingdom. In Madras in the early 1860s, he was secretary of the Madras Literary Society, and edited its Madras Journal in 1861.
