Robert Vertue (died in 1506) was an English architect and master mason.

He worked as a mason on the nave of Westminster Abbey between 1475 and 1490, and then as the master mason for Henry VII's riverside north range of Greenwich Palace, built in 1500–04 and a work at the Tower of London.

Along with his brother William, he was involved in the construction of Bath Abbey,[1] the Tower of London (1501–1502) and possibly Henry VII's chapel at Westminster.[2]
