Mary Frances Dawson, Countess of Dartrey, 25th Baroness de Ros of Helmsley (née FitzGerald-de Ros) (31 July 1854 – 4 May 1939) was a British peer. She was born in London. Her parents were Dudley FitzGerald-de Ros and Lady Elizabeth Egerton. Upon her father's death in 1907, Mary succeeded to the title.
