Sir John Bingham, 5th Baronet (1690 – 21 September 1749)[1] was an Irish politician.

He was the eldest son of Sir George Bingham, 4th Baronet, and his first wife Mary Scott.[2] Bingham was educated at the Middle Temple.[3] He was appointed High Sheriff of Mayo in 1721[3] and was Governor of County Mayo.[4] In 1727, he entered the Irish House of Commons for County Mayo, the same constituency his father had represented before, and sat for it until his death in 1749.[5] In 1730, he succeeded his father as baronet.[1]

By 1730, he married Anne Vesey, daughter of Agmondisham Vesey[3] and had five daughters and three sons.[2] Bingham died in 1749 and was buried at Castlebar.[3] He was succeeded in the baronetcy successively by his sons John and Charles.[2]
