Matthew Montagu, 4th Baron Rokeby (1762–1831), known as Matthew Robinson until 1776, was a British Member of Parliament and Peer of the Realm.

Montagu was born Matthew Robinson, the son of Morris Robinson of the Six Clerks' Office, Chancery Lane and nephew of Matthew Robinson, 2nd Baron Rokeby. He changed his name to Montagu upon inheriting the estate of his paternal aunt, Elizabeth Montagu, at Sandleford Priory in Berkshire in 1776. He represented the Cornish constituencies of Bossiney (1786–90), Tregony (1790–95) in the Parliament of Great Britain and St Germans (1806–12) in the Parliament of the United Kingdom. In 1829 he succeeded his brother as 4th Baron Rokeby.
