Robert was born in Abney in 1694, the second son of Nicholas and Margaret (1). His brother William was nearly five years older than him (2), and his sister Anne was born in 1698 (3). His mother died shortly before his fifth birthday (4). His father remarried about seven years later to Hester Frost (2).

Robert married Mary Bamford on 5th May 1716 at St Peter's in Hope (5). His father died the following year (6). His eldest son Joseph was born in 1720 (7), followed by eldest daughter Elizabeth in 1723 (8). Their son William was probably born around 1725 (9), followed by youngest daughter Margaret in 1727 (10), and finally youngest son Nicholas in 1730 (11). Their son William died the following year (12).

His wife Mary died in 1755 (13), and he died 1758. He was buried in Hope on 18th October (14).
