|Born||Waltham, North East Lincolnshire|
|Died||17 September 1395|
|Previous post||Archdeacon of Richmond|
John de Waltham was instituted as rector of the Church of St Peter, Great Berkhamsted in 1379 by Richard II. He was Lord Privy Seal from 1386 to 1389. He was also Lord Treasurer from 1391 to 1395. He held the office of Archdeacon of Richmond from 1385 to 1388.
Waltham enjoyed an especially close relationship with Richard II; when Waltham died on 17 September 1395, Richard honoured him with a tomb in Westminster Abbey in the Chapel of Edward the Confessor, the only person not of royal blood to be buried in the royal chapel.

- Birtchnell (p.34) notes that "scandalous talk of the king's affection for him" abounded, possibly comparing Richard's relationship with Waltham to that with Robert de Vere
