Thomas Roper, 1st Viscount Baltinglass was an Anglo-Irish soldier and peer.

Viscount Baltinglass, in the County of Wicklow, was a title created three times in the Peerage of Ireland. The first came on 29 June 1541 in favour of Thomas Eustace, 1st Baron Kilcullen. He had already created Baron Kilcullen, in the County of Kildare, in September 1535, also in the Peerage of Ireland. Lord Baltinglass was the nephew and heir of Rowland FitzEustace, 1st Baron Portlester, who died without legitimate male issue. His grandson, the third Viscount, took part in the Desmond Rebellion of 1581 and was attainted in 1585 with his titles forfeited. He died the same year. His younger brothers both Edmund and William both subsequently styled themselves Viscount Baltinglass although the titles were never restored.

He was born in 1530 and died in Spain in 1585. Baltinglass's family was traditionally associated with the FitzGerald family, the earls of Kildare, but prudently remained loyal to Henry VIII during the "Silken Thomas" Rebellion of 1534-35. For their loyalty they were granted additional lands. Later in the 1540s Thomas FitzEustace, James's grandfather, was created first Viscount Baltinglass by a grateful king. But like many other old English Pale families, the FitzEustaces later became disillusioned.
