Biographical Information:

  • Robert was the youngest of the four children of Robert and Fanny Maria (nee Blaylock). His father Robert was a sea captain. Both families, the Blaylocks and Calverts were Cumbrian, the Blaylocks had farmed in the Burgh by Sands area for generations. With Robert away at sea so much it is not surprising that Fanny and the children lived at Burgh by Sands so that she could have the support of her family.
