  • Memorial ID 65358840

He was born before 1650.

A source says Robert was married with Elizabeth Phillips in June 1658 of Saint Helens, Bishopsgate County, London, England.

Robert married Ann Williams on 19 August 1668. Where they were married is disputed. Some sources say in Portsmouth, New Hampshire. Other sources say Devon, England. A source says Robert was married with Elizabeth Phillips in 1658 at Saint Helen's, London.

Robert was a fisherman who was taxed at Portsmith in 1673 as a fisherman, at "The Isles of Shoals", off the coast of New Hampshire.

He bought a home and 13 acres on Sagamore Creek between Richard Goss and Henry Savage.

The place of burial of Robert and Ann is not known. It may have been in the "Point of Graves," that ancient lot in Portsmouth at the edge of the harbor where so many of the pioneers of an earlier period were laid to rest and where so few stones remain.
