Robert Isaac Dey Gray (ca. 1772 – October 8, 1804) was a lawyer, judge and political figure in Upper Canada.
He was probably born in New York, but came to Canada with his parents (James Gray and Elizabeth Low) at the beginning of the American Revolution. He studied law and was called to the bar in 1794. In 1795, he became Solicitor General for the province. He became a district court judge for the Home District in 1796.
On October 7, 1804, he left York (Toronto) aboard the HMS Speedy to prosecute a murder case at the district town for the Newcastle District. The ship sunk off Presqu'ile Point in a storm on Lake Ontario and all hands were lost.
