John Codrington Bampfylde

John Codrington Warwick Bampfylde or Bampfield (August 27, 1754-1796/7) was an English poet. He came from a prominent Devon family, his father being Sir Richard Warwick Bampfylde, of Poltimore, and was educated at the University of Cambridge. He led a dissipated life in London, and presumably suffered from some mental illness towards the end of it.

His only published work was Sixteen Sonnets (1778), which attracted the attention of Robert Southey.
