John Flavel (1627 - 1691) was a Presbyterian clergyman.

Flavel was born at Bromsgrove, Worcestershire and studied at Oxford. A Presbyterian, held livings at Diptford (in Devon) and Dartmouth. He was ejected from the latter as a result of the Great Ejection of 1662; however, he continued to preach there secretly. After the Declaration of Indulgence 1687, became a minister of a Nonconformist Church there.

He was a prolific and popular author. Among his works are The Mystery of Providence , Husbandry Spiritualised (1669) and Navigation Spiritualised (1671), The Seamon's Companion(1676), titles which suggest some of his characteristics as a writer.

He died at Exeter, Devonshire, June 26, 1691.
