Timothy Bloodworth (1736 – August 24, 1814) was an American teacher and statesman from North Carolina.

He was born in North Carolina in 1736 and spent most of his life before the American Revolutionary War as a teacher. In 1776, he began making arms including muskets and bayonets for the Continental Army. In 1778 and 1779, he served as a member of the North Carolina state legislature. Following this, he held a number of political posts sequentially until serving as a delegate to the Continental Congress in 1786.

He was elected to the First United States Congress as a member of the House of Representatives, serving from 1790 to 1791 before returning to the North Carolina state legislature. In 1794 Bloodworth was elected to the United States Senate, where he served from 1795 to 1801. From then until 1807,[2] Bloodworth served as collector of customs in Wilmington, North Carolina. During the Second World War, liberty ship SS Timothy Bloodworth was named in his honor.
