John De la Bere was a 15th-century Bishop of St David's in Wales. He entered the Church and became Dean of Wells before being appointed Bishop of St David's in September 1447. Bishop De la Bere lent his palace at Lamphey to the Earl of Richmond for his honeymoon with the thirteen-year-old Margaret Beaufort, Countess of Richmond and Derby in 1455. It was there that, their son, King Henry VII of England, was conceived. The bishop resigned on 23 July 1460, possibly due to his political affiliations during the Wars of the Roses, and was succeeded by Robert Tully.
