Sir Robert Frankland-Russell, 7th Baronet (1784–1849) was an English politician, known also as an artist. In early life he was called Robert Frankland.
Frankland was elected to parliament for Thirsk in 1815, resigning his seat in 1834. He succeeded his father as baronet in 1831, and in 1836 inherited property from Sir Robert Greenhill-Russell, 1st Baronet, adding Russell to his surname. The estate included Chequers Court, which he improved, with Edward Buckton Lamb brought in as architect. He was High Sheriff of Yorkshire in 1838.
Frankland-Russell's father had studied under John Malchair, and he himself was a watercolourist, and painted hunting scenes. Two series of aquatints by Charles Turner after Frankland appeared in 1814, Delights of Fishing and Hunting Subjects.
