Sir John Barrington, 9th Baronet (8 December 1752 – 5 August 1818)[1] was a British politician and baronet.

Born at Red Lion Street in London and baptised at St Andrew, Holborn,[2] he was the first son of Sir Fitzwilliam Barrington, 8th Baronet and his wife Jane Hall, daughter of Matthew Hall.[3] He was educated at Eton College until 1770 and then at Trinity Hall, Cambridge.[4][5] In 1792, he succeeded his father as baronet.[3]

Barrington entered the British House of Commons in 1780, sitting as a Member of Parliament (MP) for Newtown, the same constituency his uncle John had before represented, until 1796.[6] He died aged 66 at his seat Barrington Hall, Essex, unmarried,[7] and was buried at St Mary the Virgin, Hatfield Broadoak.[2] He was succeeded in the baronetcy by his younger brother Fitzwilliam.[8]
