Major-General 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:

  • Francis Scott, 2nd Earl of Deloraine (1710–39)
  • Henry Scott, 3rd Earl of Deloraine (1712–40)
  • Lady Anne Scott (c.1720–?), died unmarried.
  • In 1706 Queen Anne created Scott Earl of Deloraine. He was elected to the last Scottish Parliament that year and voted in favour of the Acts of Union. In 1725 he was vested with the Order of the Bath.

    In 1726, Deloraine married Mary Scott, Countess of Deloraine, the granddaughter of Col. Philip Howard, and they had two daughters:

  • Lady Georgiana Caroline (1727–1809), married James Peachey, 1st Baron Selsey.
  • Lady Henrietta (b. 1728–?), died unmarried.
  • Lord Deloraine died suddenly on Christmas Day in 1730 and is buried at Sandford St Martin, Oxfordshire.
