Sir John Emmott Barlow, 1st Baronet (16 April 1857 – 17 September 1932) was a British businessman and Liberal Party politician.

Barlow was the son of Thomas Barlow and his wife Mary Ann (née Emmott). He was educated at Grove House School Tottenham. He was a senior partner in the family firms of Thomas Barlow & Brothers, of Manchester and London, and Barlow and Company, of Calcutta, Shanghai, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur which traded in tea, coffee, rubber and such.[1] He sat in the House of Commons as Member of Parliament (MP) for Frome in Somerset from 1892 to 1895 and from 1896 to 1918, and was a Justice of the Peace for Cheshire and Somerset and a County Alderman for Cheshire. In 1907 he was created a baronet, of Bradwall Hall in Sandbach in the County of Chester.[2]

Barlow married the Hon. Anna Maria, daughter of Richard Denman and Helen Mary McMicking, on 13 July 1895.[3] They had two sons and two daughters. He died in September 1932, aged 75, and was succeeded in the baronetcy by his eldest son John, who was a Conservative MP. Lady Barlow died in 1965.
