Baldwin de Redvers, 3rd Earl of Devon[1] (c. 1160–1188) was Earl of Devon from 1162 until his death and was feudal baron of Plympton in Devon.[2] His birth is not attested; but he had a younger brother, and he was invested with the Earldom between the Pipe Rolls of 1185 and 1186, so he should not have been much over twenty-one.

He married Denise the heiress of Raoul, Prince of Déols, lord of Châteauroux and Charenton-du-Cher. After his death, she married André de Chauvigny.

He was succeeded by his brother, Richard de Redvers, 4th Earl of Devon.
