John Eliot Southgate (2 September 1926 – 18 December 1999)[1] was Dean of York in the Church of England; holding this post from 1984 until 1994 when he was replaced by the Very Revd Raymond Furnell.

Southgate was educated at the City of Norwich School and received a BA from Durham University in 1953 and a Diploma of Theology in 1955.

Southgate conducted the service, held in 1988, after the restoration of York Minster, which caught fire in 1984.[2] The Minster was struck by lightning four days before the retirement of the previous dean, Ronald Jasper.[3] Southgate was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of York in 1989.[4]
