John Woodbridge V (1582–1637) was rector of the parish of Stanton, near Highworth in Wiltshire, England. In his work Magnalia, Reverend Cotton Mather extolled John as "a minister so able and faithful as to obtain an high esteem among those that at all knew the invaluable worth of such a minister." John Woodbridge was deceased well before Mather was born though, so the quote may actually refer to his son, John Woodbridge VI.
