Joan Eileen Hocquard (née Reynolds; 29 March 1908 – 24 October 2020) was a British supercentenarian who was the oldest living person in the United Kingdom, a title she previously held jointly with Bob Weighton until his death on 28 May 2020. Her age is currently unvalidated by the Gerontology Research Group.


Hocquard was born on 29 March 1908 in London, England, and spent some of her youth in Africa. She married Gilbert Hocquard who shared her love of sailing and travelling. He died in 1981. She currently lives in Poole, Dorset, England. She had a partner, Ken, who was 20 years her junior.
