English: Archbishop John Joseph Hughes ( June 24, 1797 - January 3, 1864) was the fourth bishop and first Archbishop of the Roman Catholic diocese of New York. He was born in County Tyrone, Ireland and after emigrating to the United States. was educated at Mount St. Mary's College in Maryland; he was ordained a priest in 1826 and a bishop in 1838, with the titular see of Basileopolis. Hughes succeeded to the bishopric of the diocese of New York in 1842 and became an archbishop in 1850, when the diocese became an archdiocese.

Hughes is notable for leading the effort to found an independent Catholic school system in the United States, which was taken into the Catholic Church's core at the third plenary Council of 1884.

Hughes founded St. John's College (now Fordham University) and began construction of St. Patrick's Cathedral. He was originally buried in old St. Patrick's Cathedral and was exhumed and re-interred in the crypt under the altar of the new St. Patrick's Cathedral.
