Recent analysis of the laws in effect for the year Robert arrived on this side of the Atlantic as regards bond servants in the colony of Virginia show that Robert was indeed aged 19 in the spring of 1652. He was, thus, born in 1633. Where? We do not know. Even if we did, do parish records still exist from there? We do not know. Speculation is not the evidence we need to demonstrate who his Father actually was, but it is an excellent method of eliminating the unlikely candidates.
