Jean-Baptiste Esménard (1772–1842) was a French journalist and brother to the poet Joseph-Alphonse Esménard.


Fighting under the First French Empire as an army officer, he was imprisoned in the Force from 1810 to 1814 for a Legitimist plot.

He contributed to Gazette de France, La Quotidienne, Journal des Débats and Mercure, and translated a large part of the memoirs of Manuel Godoy, the Prince de la Paix.
