Robert was born in 1802. He was baptised at Kirk German on the Isle of Man on 26 Jul 1802. As the first born son, he inherited the farm at Lambfell when his father died 1838. His marriage to Elizabeth Kelly in 1839 produced 19 children. He died suddenly in 1872, apparently as the result of an assault. Apparently he had a nasty tongue when he was drunk and he was beaten after leaving the pub, possibly near the gate of Lambfell Mor. He seemed to have been carried to the gate of his house where he was later found dead.
Because he died intestate, his eldest son could not inherit the farm as was the tradition - each of the other children had to sign away their entitlement to a share as they reached their majority.
