For the American university president, see Robert A. Corrigan.

Robert Corrigan, (c. 1816 – 19 October 1855) was born in County Tyrone.

Corrigan's family immigrated to Canada sometime after 1831 and settled on lots in Saint-Sylvestre, Lower Canada a predominantly Roman Catholic area. He became a farmer there and converted to Anglicanism. This caused a great deal of strife and led, at least indirectly, to his death from a vicious beating.

He was buried 27 October in Leeds, Lower Canada.
