Robert was born abt1839 at Ryde, Isle of Wight, to parents Peter and Sarah. He was baptised on 3 February 1839 at St Thomas, Ryde.
He married Elizabeth Ann Stokes (1844-1878) in the summer of 1865 in the Peterborough Registration District, Northamptonshire.
He married Sarah (1845-1926) circa 1881. I have not been able to identify a marriage record, but Sarah was probably Sarah Stokes, sister of Elizabeth Ann. They did not have any children.
Robert died on 15 April 1915 at Hove, Sussex.
