Robert Bagnall and Benjamin Franklin

I am looking for information on Robert Bagnall who attended Benjamin Franklin's College and Academy of Philadelphia (today's University of Pennsylvania) from 1752 to 1755. The person listed as responsible for his tution money was Benjamin Bagnall.

I have found this blurb on a Benjamin Bagnall (not sure it's the same one here):

Benjamin Bagnall, a clockmaker from Boston, MA, was married Aug 23, 1742 in Haverhill, MA; In 1717, it is believed that Benjamin Bagnall of Boston, Massachusetts, built the first tower clock to have been made in the Colonies. Benjamin was born in England and had an apprenticeship there; he then came to Boston around 1713; Benjamin Bagnall was born about 1689 and died July 11, 1773 in Boston, MA at the age of 84

Any information you might have on Robert Bagnall, the student, would be greatly appreciated. I'm particularly interested in anything related to Robert's role (if any) during the American Revolution.
