Sir John Pakington, 1st Baronet (1600–1624) was an English baronet and M.P. for Aylesbury in 1623–16234.


John was the only son of Sir John Pakington (1549-1625). He was created a baronet in June 1620, and sat in Parliament for Aylesbury in 1623–16234. Pakington died in October 1624, and was buried at Aylesbury. He predeceased his father by some months, and so on the death of his father, his father's estates were inherited by the 1st Baronet's son Sir John Pakington, 2nd Baronet.[1]


Sir John married Frances, daughter of Sir John Ferrers of Tamworth, with whom he had two children, a son John (1620–1680), who succeeded to the title, and one daughter (Elizabeth), who married, first, Colonel Henry Washington, and, secondly, Samuel Sandys of Ombersley in Worcestershire.

His widow, Frances, married at St. Antholin, Budge Row, London, on 29 December 1626, "Mr. Robert Leasly, gent."[2] The similarity of name may account for the improbable statement frequently made that she became the second wife of Alexander Leslie, 1st Earl of Leven.[1]
