Robert was born about 1784.
He was recorded at muster in 1811.  In 1814 he was recorded as a free labourer of Penrith off stores & in 1822 as having Absolute Pardon landholder of Windsor;
it may be he who is employer of Richard (Gilmore) convict, Ann (Glover) free by servitude housekeeper at Windsor & William (Gregory) convict all at Windsor
and possessing 5hogs.
He is mentioned in musters 1823, 1824 & 1825 as being a constable of Melville; in 1824 employer of William Gregory convict Life from MALABAR at Melville & Bathurst.
In 1828 he is mentioned as Protestant of Bathurst labourer husband/partner of Ann (Glover?) with 280acres 1horse 1cattle 20sheep.

Because of his acquaintance with Ann (Glover) & a note in the 1828 census of Ann (Chapman aka Glover convict from SYDNEY COVE) I have sought & found the following:-
An Ann (Glover) came to NSW as a convict on SYDNEY COVE in 1807.  She partnered with Abraham (Hearne) a convict from HMS GLATTON who arrived in NSW in 1803 & produced 2children:-
Elizabeth (Hearne) born 1808 & baptised in 1812 at St Johns Parramatta.
Sarah (Hearne) born 1810 & baptised with Elizabeth in 1812 at St Johns Parramatta.
Later births to ??? (Glover) may also be:-
Eliza (???) born in 1803.
Henry (???) born in 1815.
Eliza (???) born in 1816.
Frederick (???) born in 1818.
Alfred (???) born in 1819.
Sarah (???) born in 1820.
This may be the Ann (Glover) who worked for & later stayed with Robert (Chapman)

Ann (Glover) has an entry on this Website.
