Robert Bingham

1713 - 1784

Father Hercules Bingham
Mother Elizabeth Low
Wife Elizabeth Lomas
Children Ellen, Elizabeth, Margaret, George


Robert was born in Litton in 1713, the third child of Hercules and Elizabeth, and baptised in Tideswell on 27th August (1). His brother Adam died just a few months later (2) making Robert the eldest son. A younger brother William was born in 1715 (3), and a sister Ann in 1722 (4). His father died in 1732 (5).

Robert married Elizabeth Lomas on 15th February 1739 (6), and they set up home in Tideswell (7). Their first child Ellen was born about a year later (8), followed by Elizabeth about a year after that (9). Two years later, in 1743, their youngest daughter Margaret was born (10). Eldest daughter Ellen died aged only 4 (11) in 1744, and finally they had a son George in 1746 (12).

Sometime after this they moved to Litton (13) - possibly following the death of Robert's mother in 1753 (14). Elizabeth died there in 1780 (15), and Robert in July 1784. He was buried in Tideswell (16).
