John Dennistoun (1803 - 9 September 1870)[1] was a British Whig politician and banker.[2]

A member of Brooks's, he was elected Whig MP for Glasgow at a by-election in 1870--caused by the resignation of James Oswald--and held the seat until 1847 when he was defeated.[2][3]

His brother, Alexander Dennistoun, was Whig MP for Dunbartonshire from 1835 to 1837.[2]
