John Imray (11 January 1811 – 22 August 1880) was a Scottish physician, legislator, agriculturist and botanist. He studied medicine at Edinburgh University and moved to Dominica in 1832 to take up the only public medical post at the time: surgeon to the prison.
He was instrumental in agricultural policy, development and sanitation on Dominica.
After him are named many plants as well as the Imray ward at the Princess Margaret Hospital in Roseau, Dominica.
