Sir Richard Symons, 1st Baronet (c. 1743 – 4 July 1796), was a British politician.

Born Richard Peers, Symons was the only son of Richard Peers, of London, by Anna Sophia Symons, daughter and heiress of Richard Symons, originally of London, who had purchased The Mynde estate in Herefordshire. According to the will of his maternal grandfather, he assumed the surname of Symons in lieu of his patronymic on succeeding to The Mynde estate.[1]

From 1768 to 1784 Symons sat as Member of Parliament for Hereford.[2] In 1774 he was created a baronet, of The Mynde in the County of Hereford.[1]

Symons never married. He died in July 1796, when the baronetcy became extinct.[1]
