Assuming Irving was his first name, and not a middle name that he simply chose to be addressed by, I see two possible candidates for your Irving.

View Record J Robinson District 7, Washington, Maryland

Looking at the actual census record the J could easily be an I.

1830 Census Dist 7, Washington Co., MD
I. (or J.?) Robinson

Free Whites:

Males
0-5 1
40-50 1

Females
40-50 1

No Slaves or Free People of Color.

Perhaps this was Eleanor. If it is possible that Frank was born in 1830 not 1831 this could be them. I'm not sure where Irvin/Irving was, though.

1830 Census Baltimore Ward 6, Baltimore Co., MD
E. Robinson

No Whites

No Slaves

FPC

Males
0-10 1

Females
24-36 1
55-100 1

There was no one in the 1830 Census, and only one person in the 1840 Census, with first and last names that began IRV and ROB.

1840 United States Federal Census
Name: Irvin Robertson
Township: Boon
County: Van Buren
State: Missouri

He had a young daughter, but no sons.

There is no one in the 1850 Census matching your Irvin's description. There was one Irvin Robinson in PA, but he was born in that state, MD, so where his children, none of them were named Francis/Frank and his wife's name was Martha.

Next, I checked ERV and ROB.

In 1830, there were two Ervin Robinsons -- one in Illinois and one in Massachusetts.

The one in Barnstable, MA:

Males
0-5 1
20-30 1

Females
0-5 1
10-15 1
15-20 1
20-30 1
50-60 1

The one in Jackson Co., IL:

Males
0-5 1
20-30 1

Females
20-30 1

In 1840, there were also two Ervin Robinsons -- the gentleman from Barnstable and one in Maine.

Barnstable:

Males
0-5 1
10-15 1
30-40 1

Females
0-5 2
5-10 2
30-40 1
60-70 1

Maine:

Males
0-5 2
5-10 1
15-20 2
30-40 1
70-80 2
80-90 1

Females
20-30 1
30-40 1
60-70 1

According to the 1850 Census the Ervin in ME was married to a woman named Ann. However, Barnstable Ervin was married to a woman named "Elinor." If they did have a son named Frank, though, he wasn't living with them in 1850.

1850 Census Falmouth, Barnstable Co., MA
Ervin Robinson 48 M W Occupation: None $400 b. MA
Elinor S Robinson 40 F W b. MA
Barnabus Y Robinson 21 M W Occupation: Mariner b. MA
Ann L Robinson 20 F W b. MA
Augusta W Robinson 17 F W b. MA Occupation: None
Eliza P Robinson 14 F W b. MA
Andrew Y Robinson 12 M W b. MA
Abby H Robinson 10 F W b. MA
Emily A Robinson 8 F W b. MA
Charles N Robinson 6 M W b. MA
Ervin N Robinson 4 M W b. MA
Robert H Robinson 6mon M W b. MA
Mercy Young 72 F W b. MA

I couldn't find an Irvin/Irvine Robertson (using any spelling of his name) anywhere in MD.

Ervin/Erving Robinson of Barnstable was listed twice in 1850 once in Barnstable with his family and a second time in Mariposa Co., CA, living in a boarding house, working as a miner.

I then looked for men with first names that began FRAN and last names ROB who were born between 1829 and 1834, in MD.

There was one Francis Robinson living in Washington Co., MD.

1850 Census Subdivision 2, Washington Co., MD
Stephen P Grove (or Gren?) 31 M W Farmer $8400 b. MD
Mariah Grove (or Gren?) 34 F W b. VA
Francis Robinson 16 M W b. MD
James Robinson 14 M W b. MD
Elizabeth Lop? 16 F W b. VA
Silva St. Clair 15 F B b. MD

There is a Francis Robertson in Somerset Co., MD, in 1860, but he was born ca. 1824.

1860 Census Tyaskin, Somerset Co., MD
Francis Robertson 36 M W Farmer $1200 $500 b. MD
Sarah E Robertson 35 F W b. MD
Charles F Robertson 14 M W b. MD
Greensbury A Robertson 12 M W b. MD
John H T Robertson 10 M W b. MD
William A Robertson 7 M W b. MD
George R Robertson 4 M W b. MD
Margaret A F Robertson 2 F W b. MD
Infant Robertson 6mon M W b. MD

Here he is in 1850 Tyaskin, Somerset Co., MD

Francis Robertson 25 M W Farmer $500 b. MD
Elizabeth Robertson 25 F W b. MD
Charles Robertson 4 M W b. MD
Greensbury Robertson 2 M W b. MD
John H T Robertson 3mon M W b. MD
Sarah Willing 17 F W b. MD
Henry Robertson 21 M W Sailor b. MD
