Vice Admiral The Hon. John Byron, RN (8 November 1723 – 10 April 1786) was a Royal Navy officer. He was known as Foul-weather Jack because of his frequent encounters with bad weather at sea. As a midshipman, he sailed in the squadron under George Anson on his voyage around the world, though Byron made it to southern Chile, and returned to England with the captain of HMS Wager. He was governor of Newfoundland following Hugh Palliser, who left in 1768. He circumnavigated the world as a commodore with his own squadron in 1764-1766. He fought in battles in The Seven Years' War and the American Revolution. He rose to Vice Admiral of the White before his death in 1786.

Es conocido por ser, en su juventud, uno de los escasos supervivientes del naufragio del HMS Wager (1741), del que dejó una narración con su versión del motín que dividió a los supervivientes en dos grupos y también por haber comandado el HMS Dolphin en un viaje de circunnavegación alrededor del mundo (1764-66).

  • John Byron foi um navegador inglês que entre 1764 e 1766 comandou a fragata "Dolphin" pelo Oceano Pacífico em busca de novos continentes. Em setembro de 1764, aportou no Rio de Janeiro, constatando que as fortificações da cidade estavam deterioradas. Assim como sucederia a James Cook, os tripulantes não receberam licença para aportar e ficaram reclusos na embarcação. Em sua homenagem o ponto mais oriental da Austrália continental chama-se Cabo Byron.

  • Venne soprannominato Foul-weather Jack a causa della sua frequente sfortuna con le condizioni meteorologiche. Secondo figlio del quarto Barone di Biron, entrò nella Royal Navy in giovane età, accompagnando il Barone Anson durante durante un viaggio di circumnavigazione come aspirante guardiamarina. La nave di Byron, la Wager, naufragò sulle coste della Patagonia e i sopravvissuti decisero di dividersi in due gruppi, uno sarebbe andato in barca fino a Rio de Janeiro, l'altro, il gruppo di Byron, si sarebbe diretto a nord per incontrare gli spagnoli. Descrisse la sua avventura nel libro "The Narrative of the Honourable John Byron", che vendette abbastanza da essere pubblicato in diverse edizioni. Queste esperienze servirono anche a Patrick O'Brian per scrivere il suo libro "The Unknown Shore
