Robert was a “pewterer” from London before being transported to NSW. He served his sentence of 7 years and then took up work as a tailor under Richard Humpage in Sydney. In 1835 he married Sophia Walker, a female emigrant who came to Sydney in 1834 aboard the ill-fated ship David Scott. Robert and Sophia had six children together, and I believe Sophia died in 1852 under the surname of Barns, with her burial record stating she was 38 years old and her abode was Phillip Street in Sydney.
