John de Montacute (c. 1330 - c. 1390) was a 14th-century English nobleman and loyal servant of King Edward III of England. He was the son of William Montagu, 1st Earl of Salisbury and Catherine Montagu (née Grandison), and younger brother of William de Montacute, 2nd Earl of Salisbury (25 June 1328 – 3 June 1397). He also had several younger sisters. His wife was Margaret de Monthermer, daughter of Thomas de Monthermer, 2nd Baron de Monthermer and Margaret Teyes. Their son, born in 1350, was John Montacute, 3rd Earl of Salisbury.

Jean Froissart named "Lord John Mountacute" as one of the barons participating in Edward III's December 1348 expedition to defend the newly acquired Calais against French recapture.
