John England (September 23, 1786 in Cork, Ireland - April 11, 1842 in Charleston, South Carolina) was the first Catholic Bishop of Charleston, South Carolina and a leader of the Irish Catholics. John England was educated in Cork, and later entered St. Patrick's, Carlow College, 31 August 1803. In his nineteenth year he began to deliver catechetical instructions in the parish chapel and zealously instructed the soldiers in garrison at Cork. He also established a female reformatory together with male and female poor schools. Out of these schools grew the Presentation Convent. He was ordained priest in Cork, 10 October 1809, and was appointed lecturer at the cathedral. Wherever he preached people thronged to hear him. Pending the opening of the Magdalen Asylum he maintained and ministered to many applicants. In the same year he published the "Religious Repertory," established a circulating library in the parish of St. Mary, Shandon, and attended the city jail.
