Thomas Fairfax, 6th Lord Fairfax of Cameron (October 22, 1693 - December 9, 1781) was the son of Thomas Fairfax, 5th Lord Fairfax of Cameron and of Catherine, daughter of Thomas Culpeper, 2nd Baron Culpeper of Thoresway.

The only resident peer in late colonial America, Fairfax administered his vast Northern Neck Proprietary - a Virginia land grant dating back to 1649 - from his wilderness estate at Greenway Court, Virginia. Various place names in Northern Virginia and West Virginia's Eastern Panhandle are named for him—most notably Fairfax County, Virginia.
