Reginald de Grey, 1st Baron Grey de Wilton (died 1308), was an English nobleman for whom one of the four Inns of Court is named. He was son of Sir John de Grey and grandson of Henry de Grey. The property upon which Gray's Inn sits was once Portpoole Manor held by Reginald de Grey.

De Grey was a descendant of the Norman knight Anchetil de Greye who accompanied William the Conqueror during the conquest of England.

He was summoned to Parliament from 1295 to 1307 and was Justice of Chester in 1281.[1] In 1282, he was one the three commanders appointed by Edward I of England in his campaign against Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, the rebellious Prince of Wales.[2] This resulted in his being granted the Dyffryn Clwyd with its castle of Ruthin Castle. This great lordship passed to his descendants, until Richard Grey, 6th Baron Grey de Ruthyn, 3rd Earl of Kent sold the lordship to the crown in 1508.[3] His younger grandson Roger de Grey was summoned to Parliament thus becoming Baron Grey de Ruthyn.[4]
