John William Brazier (1842–1930) was a malacologist from Australia.

In 1865 he accompanied Julius Brenchley on the voyage of H.M.S. Curacoa to Norfolk Island, Samoa, Tonga, Fiji, the New Hebrides, the Solomon Islands and New Caledonia. After several other shell collecting expeditions in Australasia he joined William John Macleay 's 1875 expedition in the Chevert to New Guinea via the Great Barrier Reef. In the early 1880s Brazier curated the shell collections at the Australian Museum and at first also the ethnological, historical and numismatic collections. By 1891 the shell collections had grown so large that Brazier curated only marine shells.
