John Buckle Barlee (2 June 1831 – August 1870) was an English rower who won the Silver Goblets at Henley Royal Regatta.

Barlee was born at West Chillington, Sussex, the son of Rev. William Barlee, rector of West Chillington and his wife Margaret. They belonged to a branch of the Buckle family which took the name of Barlee.

Barlee was educated at Christ's College, Cambridge and was Tancred Student in 1850.[1] He never took part in the Boat Race but won the University rowing pairs and the Silver Goblets at Henley Royal Regatta in 1853 partnering Robert Gordon.[2]

Barlee went into the army where he was in the Commissariat department.

Barlee died in the Penzance district at the age of 39.
