Henry I, Count of Tecklenburg (c. 1115 – 22 November 1156) was a German nobleman. He was the ruling Count of Tecklenburg from c. 1150 until his death.
He succeeded his father as Count of Tecklenburg around 1150, and was a vassal of the Bishops of both Münster and Osnabrück. His having two liege lords led to many disputes. He owned many small properties, all over Westphalia and Frisia, and consistently expanded his power base. In 1154 and 1155, he spent some time in Italy with Emperor Frederick I Barbarossa.
He died on 22 November 1156.
