- Robert was a prosperous Lower Hutt grocer
- they had 9 children, 7 sons and 2 daughters
- In 1893 Robert, a well-to-do Lower Hutt grocer, led a family migration to Taranaki, intending to farm at Toko. He soon decided to shift to Kaponga on account of the poor roads to Toko, but died suddenly before making the move.
