Baron Terrington, of Huddersfield in the County of York, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1918 for the former Liberal Member of Parliament for Huddersfield, Sir James Woodhouse, 1st Baronet. He had already been created a Baronet in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom in 1895. He was succeeded by his eldest son, the second Baron. His wife Vera Woodhouse, Lady Terrington, was one of the first female Members of Parliament. She represented Wycombe as a Liberal from 1923 to 1924. On the second Baron's death the titles passed to his younger brother, the third Baron. He notably served as a Deputy Speaker and Deputy Chairman of Committees in the House of Lords. His son, the fourth Baron, was also Deputy Chairman of Committees in the House of Lords. He had no sons and was succeeded by his younger brother, the fifth Baron. Known as Monty Woodhouse, he was a Conservative politician and an expert on Greek affairs. As of 2010 the titles are held by his eldest son, the sixth Baron, who succeeded in 2001. He is a urologist.
