Robert Large was born about the year 1716. He was from his youth of a peaceable and quiet spirit one who sincerely loved the Truth and its faithful followers. He was for many years concerned to live near to and under the influences of the blessed Principles of life and salvation, professed by the Society of Friends, and thereby was brought into great heavenly-mindedness. In meetings for worship and discipline, he was a patient, humble waiter for the arising of Divine Life, witnessing thereby his strength renewed from time to time. He was an approved elder in the church, and being enabled to lead an honest, circumspect life and maintaining our Christian testimonies in their primitive simplicity and fullness, he was of great use in his day. His friends of Kingwood Monthly Meeting, of which he was a member, say Although he had not a public testimony to bear, yet we esteemed him a preacher of righteousness in life and conversation.
As a husband, father and neighbor, he was a good example, and very charitable to the poor. He departed this life. Fourth month 27th, 1774 in his 58th year.
