Henry was the eldest son of family grocer Joseph Robinson, and Mary Evans. His maternal grandfather, Henry Evans, had many business interests in Alfreton, Derbyshire, and was the founder of 'Luke Evans' bakery.

Henry married ship broker's daughter Louisa Mary Horn at Southampton in 1889 and they had one child, Arthur Evans Robinson. After Louisa's death in 1917, Henry married, in 1928, Elizabeth Richards.

Henry was a music teacher and church organist. He held a number of appointments as organist in parish and other churches, including All Saints' Church, Southampton.

During his married life he lived at Ordnance Road in Southampton until WWII. When the town was heavily bombed, he retired with Elizabeth to live his last years at Brockenhurst in the New Forest.
