The title Earl of Holderness was created on three occasions in the Peerage of England.

The first creation, in 1621, along with the subsidiary title Baron Kingston-upon-Thames, of Kingston-upon-Thames in the County of Surrey, was in favour of John Ramsay, 1st Viscount of Haddington. As well as the Barony created with the Earldom, this Earl held the subsidiary titles Viscount of Haddington (1606), Lord Ramsay of Barns (1606) and Lord Ramsay of Melrose (1615), all in the Peerage of Scotland.

The second creation, in 1644, was as a subsidiary title of the Dukedom of Cumberland conferred on Prince Rupert of the Rhine, a nephew of King Charles I.

The third creation, in 1682, was in favour of Conyers Darcy, 8th Baron Darcy (de Knayth) and 5th Baron Conyers. These Earls used the courtesy title Lord Darcy and Conyers for their heirs apparent.
