"He was M.P. for Scarborough and until this moment (May 1st 1660) a vociferous republican. He spoke first after the reading of the letter, 'all bathed in tears'"

Luke Robinson is mentioned in 'A Proper New Ballad On The Old Parliament; Or, The Second Part Of Knave Out Of Doors' to the tune 'Hei ho, my honey'
"Luke Robinson shall go before ye,
that snarling northern tyke;
Be sure he
Chipps of the Old Block; or, Hercules
Cleansing the Augæan Stable.
To the Tune of The Sword.
Luke Robinson that Clownado,
Though his heart be a Granado,
Yet a High-shooe with his hands in his Poke,
Is his most perfect shadow.
