Portrayed by Philip Battley

John Harding is married to Gwen Harding, the former housemaid at Downton Abbey.



In 1922, whilst his mother was ill, John married Gwen.


In 1925, he and Gwen visited Downton to see Lady Rosamund Painswick and to discuss Hillcroft College, a college specifically for adult women. Gwen did not realise Rosamund was the sister of Lord Grantham, thus did not know she was visiting Downton until just before she arrived. .
