Born Bristol 1860.
Joined FR Company board in June 1908 at which time he lived in Newport, Mon. He died there, in 1938. He was mayor of Newport from November 1914.
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.
