John Tuchet, 6th Baron Audley

John Tuchet, 6th Baron Audley, 3rd Baron Tuchet (1423–1490) was an English politician.

John Tuchet was the son of James Tuchet, 5th Baron Audley (c. 1398 - 1459). He married Ann Echingham, daughter of Sir Thomas Echingham with whom he had seven children. He acquired his title by writ in 1459 on the death of his father.

In 1461 at Calais, then belonging to the English crown, he was taken prisoner by the Earl of Warwick whilst on a military expedition during the Wars of the Roses. He there met the future Edward IV and was persuaded to defect to the Yorkist cause and fought for Edward at the Battles of Mortimer's Cross, Barnet and Tewkesbury. He was subsequently invested by Edward in 1471 as a Privy Counsellor (PC) and later (1484) served as Lord High Treasurer and Commissioner of Array. He was joint commander of the Army and held the office of Master of the King's Dogs in 1471.

He died on 26 September 1490 and was buried at Shere, Surrey. He was succeeded by his eldest son, Sir James Tuchet, 7th Baron Audley (1463–1497).
