Sir John de Benstede was a prominent member of the English royal household in the late 13th and early 14th century. He was Prebendary of Sandiacre from 3 February 1297 until, presumably, 1308, when he married. He was also King's Secretary, and he served variously as keeper of the Great Seal and keeper of the wardrobe (for Edward I). He also served as Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1305-1306, and as a royal judge from 1309 onwards.
