Morris Robinson, 3rd Baron Rokeby (14 July 1757 – May 1829), was a British politician.

Robinson was the son of Morris Robinson by Jane Greenland, daughter of John Greenland, of Lovelace, Kent. Matthew Robinson, 2nd Baron Rokeby, was his uncle.[1] He was returned to Parliament for Boroughbridge, a seat he held until 1796.[1][2] In 1800 he succeeded his uncle in the barony. This was an Irish peerage and did not entitle him to a seat in the House of Lords.[1]

Lord Rokeby died in May 1829, aged 71. He was unmarried and was succeeded in the barony by his younger brother, Matthew.[1]
