Sir John Pakington, 4th Baronet (1671–1727) was a British politician. He represented Aylesbury and Worcestershire. He was known for his Tory and High Church views.

He succeeded Sir John Pakington, 3rd Baronet in 1688. In the latter part of the eighteenth century he was said to be the model for Roger de Coverley, the mildly satirical figure of the Tory gentry guyed in The Spectator, though there is little factual evidence to support this identification.

He was succeeded as an M.P. and a baronet by his son, Sir Herbert Pakington, 5th Baronet, from his second marriage.
