Sir John Trelawny, 4th Baronet (26 July 1691 – 2 February 1756), of Trelawne in Cornwall, was an English Member of Parliament.

He was the eldest son of Sir Jonathan Trelawny, 3rd Baronet and Bishop of Bristol, Exeter and Chichester, and succeeded his father in the baronetcy on 19 July 1721.

He entered Parliament in 1713 as member for West Looe, and subsequently also represented East Looe and Liskeard.

He married Agnes Blackwood (d. 1777). They had no children. As his younger brother (Edward Trelawny, Governor of Jamaica) died before him, he was succeeded in the baronetcy by his cousin, Harry.
