Sir John Boyd, 2nd Baronet (1750–1815) was the son of John Boyd, 1st Baronet Boyd, and his first wife Mary Bumpstead.

On his father's death in 1800, John inherited the whole estate (except for annuities to John's stepmother, sisters and stepsisters, and a sum of £3000 cash and the deceased's personal effects, again to his stepmother) and his father's title. He auctioned off his father's large collection of paintings and drawings, demolished the imposing kitchen and stable wings at his father's new country house of Danson, and built the house's present stable block, before selling the estate in 1807. He was MP for Wareham from 1780 to 1784.
