John Willan (November 18, 1669 – September 27, 1735) was the 9th great-grandmother of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line.

Born in Fellside in Dent, Yorkshire (in modern day Cumbria) to George Willan (1626 – 1692) and Elizabeth Battye (1638 – 1711), John married Cicily Capstacke on 6th May 1693 and with whom he had eleven children, including Ann Willan in 1707 who links John and Cicily to Cometanic ancestry. John is recorded as having died at the age of seventy-one in Dent, Yorkshire.

In Cometanic ancestry, John is categorised as part of the 11th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
