Frederick P. Robjent (1860 - 1938) was a British director of the Festiniog Railway Company from 1908. He was born in Bristol in 1860.
Robjent joined FR Company board in June 1908 at which time he lived in Newport, Mon. A stockbroker by trade, it became apparent quickly that he was only interested in the share price.
In 1908 he arranged to employ C. D. Phillips, also from Newport, to assess the situation at Boston Lodge. The report, which has not survived, was simply recorded as "noted" in the board minutes in May 1909. He then suggested William Williams (1835) services at Boston Lodge be dispensed with which was carried out. 
He may have had a connection with John Graves Livingston as in 1881 they both lived in Westbury on Trym, Bristol. At that time Robjent was an accountant. He was mayor of Newport from November 1914.  He died in Newport in 1938.
