John Ward, MP (21 November, 1866 – 19 December, 1934) was a British politician and a Coalition Liberal Member of Parliament in the early 1920s.

In 1922, he led a lecture at the Town Hall in Ripon, about the split between H. H. Asquith and Lloyd George. Isobel Crawley invited Tom Branson to attend with her, but she was ultimately unable to go as she was nursing Lady Violet, who had come down with bronchitis. Branson went alone and met Sarah Bunting there; when Bunting offered Branson the chair next to her, John Ward jokingly announced to the hall that "we've been made privy to a very romantic story".
