Robert de Holland, 1st Baron Holland was an English nobleman, born in Lancashire. He was a son of Sir Robert de Holland and Elizabeth, daughter of William de Samlesbury.
He was a favorite of Thomas Plantagenet, 2nd Earl of Lancaster and had been knighted by 1305. He served him by suppressing the 1315 rising of Adam Banastre, Henry de Lea, and William de Bradshagh (Bradshaw) who banded together and launched an attack on the Liverpool Castle. The manors of Thornton and Bagworth was acquired by him in 1313. From 1314 to 1321 he was called to Parliament. After that his part in the Battle of Boroughbridge was deemed cowardly and led to his disfavor.
