(1713 – 8 October 1776) was a British peer and politician, styled Hon. Richard Onslow from 1717 to 1740.[1]

In 1734, Onslow was returned as Member of Parliament for Guildford, which he represented in 1740. In that year, he succeeded his father Thomas Onslow, 2nd Baron Onslow as Baron Onslow, and also succeeded him in his offices of High Steward of Guildford and Lord Lieutenant of Surrey.[1]

On 16 May 1741, he married Mary Elwill (d. 19 April 1812), daughter of Sir Edmund Elwill, 3rd Baronet; the marriage was childless. Onslow received an LL.D. from the University of Cambridge in 1749 and was made a Knight Companion of the Bath in 1752. Upon his death in 1776, he was succeeded by special remainder in the barony by his second cousin, George Onslow.[1]
