Robert CLEMENTS

(c 1761 - 1838)
Robert CLEMENTS was born in Middlesex circa 1761. (Based on age at burial).

He married Mary (---?---) in England circa 1798. This assumption is based on the children born to Robert and Mary and also baptised in the same place as Elizabeth Mary (Spitalfields Christ Church), being Joshiah Frederick (b.14 Mar 1800), Charlotte (b. 11 Oct 1801), Sarah (b. 12 Dec 1803), William (b. 14 Dec 1805), Squire Caleb (b. 11 Nov 1811) and Edmund (b. 25 Jun 1815).1

He was a witness for the prosecution at Benjamin Wolfe's trial at The Old Bailey on 2 December 1801for the theft, on 16 January, of a mahogany dressing-case, value 20 shillings from Robert's show-room. Due to the conflicting evidence, Wolfe was judged not guilty, and it appears Robert did not get the dressing-case returned.2

He was a looking-glass frame maker at the time of his daughter Elizabeth's baptism on 5 September 1813.3

He signed a will dated 1837 in Hoxton, Middlesex.4

Robert's death was registered in January 1838 at Gt James St in Hoxton, East London, Middlesex.5,6 He was buried on 4 January 1838 at the Bunhill Fields Dissenter's Cemetery.5
