John W. Taylor (March 26, 1784September 18, 1854), was an early 19th century U.S. politician from New York. He served in the United States House of Representatives for 20 years, from 1813 to 1833, and served twice as Speaker of the House. He also was a representative of New York in the Missouri Compromise, where he took a stance against the extension of slavery along with people such as John Quincy Adams.


After leaving politics, Taylor practiced law in Ballston Spa, New York. He moved to Cleveland, Ohio after suffering a paralytic stroke in 1843, and died in that city 11 years later.
