Other Windsor, 2nd Earl of Plymouth (27 August 1679 – 26 December 1727) was a British peer, styled Lord Windsor from his father's death in 1684 to 1687.[1]

The son of Other Windsor, Lord Windsor and Elizabeth Turvey, he succeeded his grandfather as Earl of Plymouth in 1687. His unusual first name is a variant of Otho. On 12 April 1706, he was awarded a DCL by Oxford. He was appointed Custos Rotulorum of Worcestershire in 1710, and Lord Lieutenant of Cheshire and the counties of North Wales in 1713, but lost all his offices upon the accession of George I in 1714.

He married Elizabeth Whitley and had one child, Other Windsor, 3rd Earl of Plymouth.
