Baron Scrope of Masham is an abeyant title in the Peerage of England. It was created on 25 November 1350 as a barony by writ for Henry le Scrope, son of Geoffrey le Scrope and first cousin of Richard le Scrope, 1st Baron Scrope of Bolton. Richard le Scrope, a younger son of the 1st Baron, was Archbishop of York and executed for his role in the Percy revolt of 1405.

The title was abolished by attainder in 1415 after the 3rd Baron was executed as a ringleader in the Southampton Plot, but the title was restored in 1426. It became abeyant in 1517.
