Notes:  *Birth date conflict:  Per the Baptism date, Robert's birth date was 1773 or 1774.  Per the 1841 Eng cen, Robert's birth date was about 1781.  I am assuming that the Census entry was erroneous.

Robert was born during the reign of King George III and witnessed the early years of the transition of Gregorian England to the Victorian era.  By 1815 when Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo, England had more than 40 steamships were operating out of Liverpool.  In 1846 the South Devon Railway Company began operation from Exeter to Newton Abbot.  Robert's predominately agrarian, horse-oriented, rural country began its transition to the first industrialized, urban power on earth.

In 1818, Robert's "rank" was "yeoman" per Source 938.

Robert lived in the Ashreigney Parish area of Devon until he married Fanny.  Thereafter he lived in the South Molton area of Devon County, England.
