Robert Bromfield (died 1647) was an English timber merchant and politician who sat in the House of Commons between 1621 and 1624.
In 1621, Bromfield was elected Member of Parliament for Southwark. In the same year, he obtained a mortgage of Hammonds Place, Clayton Sussex, which by 1666 was in the hands of Sir Edward Bromfield, 2nd Baronet. He was re-elected MP for Southwark in 1624. In 1625 Bromfield and Thomas Overman bought Montague House and Montague Close, including various wharves and buildings around Southwark Priory, from Anthony-Maria Browne, 2nd Viscount Montagu; Bromfield redeveloped the site to make the buildings "suitable for men of better ability". He purchased Merton Grange, Merton for £2,100 in 1629.
