Sir John Rogerson (1648–1724) was an Irish politician, wealthy merchant and property developer.

He was elected Lord Mayor of Dublin in 1693–94 and represented Clogher in the Parliament of Ireland from 1692 to 1693, then Dublin City from 1695 to 1703. He built his country residence, "The Glen" or "Glasnevin House" outside the village of Glasnevin. A quay in Dublin was named Sir John Rogerson's Quay owing to his association with its development.
