Robert Henry or Henri was from the parish of Saint-Vincent in Rouen, Normandie (today Seine-Maritime), France, and born in about 1643. He travelled first to Canada, Nouvelle-France, where he served as a domestic servant for Quentin Moral. He was confirmed in the Catholic faith at Trois-Rivières in 1666, so he likely had been a Huguenot.
He was counted in the 1666 census of New France at Trois Rivieres, age 20.
He moved to Chignecto in c1676 and two years later married Marie-Madeleine, daughter of Pierre Godin dit Châtillon, a native of Québec who had also moved to Chignecto. 
Robert and Marie-Madeleine were counted at Port-Royal in 1686, but by 1693 they had moved to the Minas Basin. They were also counted at Minas in 1703 and 1707.
They were listed at Cobeguit in the 1714 census, before moving to Ile Royale by the 1717 census. Robert was listed with a wife and children at Port Tolouse in 1717 and 1719.
They had 13 children, including six sons, all of whom married and created families of their own. Five of their daughters married into the Doiron, Pitre, Druce, Radoux, Pinet, and Guérard families.
Unknown daughter Henryr, b. before 1714 in Acadia
He died sometime before the marriage of his son Pierre on 2 May 1736, since he was noted as deceased in the marriage entry.
