Birth

Likely to have been born 2 Sep 1750, child of Robert and Catherine Lancashire.

Baptism

There is nothing but a baptismal index to tie Robert to this but date is consistent with age at death and a daughter was given same name as his mother. Date of birth was remembered 8 years afterwards at baptismal time which is consistent with him having at least literate parents. He had money and property to dispense in a will.

Marriage

@Married by licence obtained on 11th March. Robert was from St Nicholas Parish in Bristol and Martha from Portbury. Both were previously unmarried.@

Residence

Robert Lancashire was recorded as owing land tax on two parcels of land in Portbury. He owned one and rented the other. There were many others whose tax was much higher than his.

Marriage

@Married after banns. Both of the parish.@

Will

After paying debts and funerary expenses and before providing support for wife and children large amounts of money were bequeathed to people named Dyer. The writing is hard to read but it looks like 300 pounds were bequeathed to William Dyer and 400 hundred pounds to ? Robara Dyer.

Robert's second wife was Sarah Dyer, a widow, who died in 1802, a year after marriage. It is conjectured that the Dyers who received Robert Lancashire's bequests were descended from, or connected closely with the previous marriage and perhaps entitled to money from their mother's dower. Insufficient records have been found to account for the payment.

Burial

Burial plot not found in October 2015.
