John Gordon of Glenbucket (c.1673 – 16 June 1750) was a Scottish Jacobite, or supporter of the claim of the House of Stuart to the British throne. Laird of a minor estate in Aberdeenshire, he fought in several successive Jacobite risings. Following the failure of the 1745 rising, in which he served with the rank of Major-General, he escaped to Norway before settling in France, where he died in 1750.
Despite a reputation in later popular history as “one of the most romantic of Jacobite heroes”, Glenbucket was a controversial figure who acted as a government agent between 1715 and 1745, and was accused of forcibly conscripting men during the 1745 rising.
