At the 1832 general election Marjoribanks was elected as the Member of Parliament (MP) for Berwickshire. He held the seat until his death the following year in 1833 at the age of 39.

Marjoribanks is commemorated by the Marjoribanks monument in Coldstream. The inscription on the monument describes him as a man of "high talents, amiable qualities and political principles". He is buried in the Marjoribanks mausoleum in Coldstream. His brother David took the name Robertson and became 1st Baron Marjoribanks.
