Henry Scott, 1st Earl of Deloraine KB (1676 – 25 December 1730) was a Scottish peer and army officer.

Scott was the second surviving son of James Scott, 1st Duke of Monmouth (the illegitimate son of Charles II and Lucy Walter) and his wife, Anne. In 1693, he married Anne Duncombe (d. 1720), the daughter of William Duncombe of Batthesden, Lord Chief Justice of Ireland. They had three surviving children:

  • Henry Scott, 3rd Earl of Deloraine (1712–40)
  • Lady Anne Scott (c.1720–?), died unmarried.
