      Robinson, Sir John, first baronet (bap. 1615, d. 1680), merchant and financier, was baptized on 10 January 1615, the third but second surviving son of William Robinson DD, of Long Whatton, near Loughborough, archdeacon of Nottingham (1635–42), and his wife, Sarah, daughter of William Bainbridge of Lockington.
