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.cite book | first=Dr. David | last=Jenkins | chapter=Glynne family, of Hawarden, Flints. | title=Dictionary of Welsh Biography | chapterurl=http://yba.llgc.org.uk/en/s-GLYN-PEN-1603.html | accessdate=2007-08-13]

In 1731, he married the heiress Honora Conway, by which match he almost doubled his estates at Hawarden.

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. His wife Honora died in 1769, and Glynne remarried on 27 March 1772 to Augusta Beaumont, by whom he had no children. He died suddenly in 1777, and was succeeded by his son, Rev. Stephen, his elder son John Conway Glynne having died in 1773.
