Captain John Neilson Gladstone (18 January 1807 – 7 February 1863) was a politician in the United Kingdom and an officer in the Royal Navy.

He was the fourth child of Sir John Gladstone, a Scottish-born businessman who settled in Liverpool and made a large fortune initially from trading in corn with the United States and cotton with Brazil, and later through sugar plantations in Jamaica.[1] His mother was Anne MacKenzie née Robertson, from Dingwall.[2] His younger brother was the British Prime Minister William Ewart Gladstone, and his elder brother Thomas was also a Member of Parliament (MP).

He was MP for Walsall from February to June 1841, for Ipswich from 1842 to 1847, and for Devizes from 1852 to 1857.
