Sir Robert Gray Cornish Mowbray, 2nd Baronet, DL (21 May 1850 – 23 July 1916), was a British Conservative politician.

Mowbray was the son of Sir John Mowbray, 1st Baronet, and his wife Elizabeth Grey (née Mowbray). He was returned to Parliament for Prestwich at the 1886 general election, and held the seat until his defeat at the 1895 general election.[1] He returned to the House of Commons at an unopposed by-election in March 1900 for the Brixton constituency, and held that seat until he stood down at the 1906 general election.[1] He lived at 'Warennes Wood' at Stratfield Mortimer in Berkshire and was appointed a deputy lieutenant of that county in 1900.[2]

He was a member of the Royal Commission on Opium in India from 1893–95.

Mowbray died in July 1916, aged 66.
