John Watson (fl. 1547-1554), from Newcastle-upon-Tyne, was an English politician.


Watson was the son of John Watson of Newcastle-upon-Tyne. There is no record of a marriage or children, however his life is obscure, and it is possible that it was not the same John Watson who served for Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Morpeth and Berwick-upon-Tweed.


Watson was educated at Lincoln's Inn, London.


He was a Member (MP) of the Parliament of England for Berwick-upon-Tweed 1547, Morpeth October 1553 and Newcastle-upon-Tyne November 1554.[1]
