Sir John Glynne, 6th Baronet
Sir John Glynne, 6th Baronet (1713 – 1 July 1777) was a Welsh politician and landowner.
Glynne was the third son of Sir Stephen Glynne, 4th Baronet, and succeeded to the baronetcy after the successive deaths of his father and elder brothers in 1729 and 1730. In November of the latter year, he matriculated from The Queen's College, Oxford.
Sir John stood as Member of Parliament for Flint in 1734, but was defeated after spending £35,000 on the election. However, in 1741, he was elected MP for Flintshire, which he represented until 1747.
In 1751, Glynne was High Sheriff of Flintshire, and in 1752, built Hawarden Castle on his estate. He was returned to Parliament again for Flint in 1753, and represented that constituency for the rest of his life. He was made a D.C.L. by Oxford in 1763.
