Morris Robinson, 3rd Baron Rokeby (14 July 1757 – 10 May 1829), was a British politician.

Robinson was the son of London attorney Morris Robinson by Jane Greenland, daughter of John Greenland, of Lovelace, Kent. He was educated at Trinity Hall, Cambridge (1775-77) and also entered Lincoln's Inn to study law in 1775.

He was returned to Parliament for Boroughbridge, a seat he held until 1796. In 1800 he succeeded his uncle, the eccentric Matthew Robinson, 2nd Baron Rokeby, 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, who had adopted the surname of Montagu.
