Robert Carlos De Large (1842–1874) was a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from South Carolina. He was born in Aiken, South Carolina on March 15, 1842. He received such an education as was then attainable and was graduated from Wood High School, after which he became a farmer. He was a delegate to the South Carolina constitutional convention in 1868, and then a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives from 1868 until 1870. In 1870 he was elected State land commissioner, where he served until his election to the House of Representatives later that year. He was also one of the commissioners of the State's sinking fund.

De Large served in the House of Representatives from March 4, 1871 until January 24, 1873 when the seat was declared vacant as the result of an election challenge initiated by Christopher C. Bowen. After leaving Congress he served as a local magistrate until his death in Charleston on February 14, 1874.

He is buried in Brown Fellowship Graveyard.
