John Bourchier, 2nd Earl of Bath (1499, Devon -- 10 February 1561) was the son of John Bourchier, 1st Earl of Bath and Cecily Daubeny. Henry VIII, in 1539, granted the manors of Hackpen, Sheldon, Bolham and Saint Hill to the 2nd Earl, who had already inherited the Dynhams' Okehampton Barony from his grandmother, Elizabeth Dynham. He married Lady Eleanor Manners. Their heir was John Bourchier, 5th Baron FitzWarin, born 1520, who married Lady Frances Kytson, fathered William Bourchier, and died in 1557, with the earldom thus passing straight to the 2nd Earl's grandson, William.
