John Scudamore, 2nd Viscount Scudamore
John Scudamore, 2nd Viscount Scudamore DL (c. 1650 – July 1697), was an English landowner and politician.
Scudamore was the son of John Scudamore, 1st Viscount Scudamore, by Elizabeth Porter, daughter of Sir Arthur Porter, of Lanthony, Gloucester. He succeeded his father in the viscountcy in 1671. This was an Irish peerage and did not entitle him to a seat in the English House of Lords. He was instead returned to Parliament for Hereford in 1673, a seat he held until 1679, and then represented Herefordshire until 1681. He was also a Deputy Lieutenant of Gloucestershire and High Steward of Hereford.
Lord Scudamore married Lady Frances Cecil, only daughter of John Cecil, 4th Earl of Exeter, in 1672. They had three sons, of whom the eldest died young. Lady Scudamore died in 1694. Lord Scudamore survived her by three years and died in July 1697. He was succeeded in the viscountcy by his second but eldest surviving son, James.
