Hi Rhona
Yes I can link Robert Inkpen to my roots - but I think the date of birth could be wrong - possibly

First of all I found my Great great grandfather who was named Robert Inkpen who was born in 1782 - who married a woman named Mary - they had 11 children - and one child was named Robert Inkpen who was born in Burin NFLD in 1817- he died in August 1837 in Great Burin( he drowned) - he was bapitzed in april 1817 - it was his brother who is in my family line ( my great grandfather )- the 5th child named Thomas Inkpen born 1824 in Shalloway NFLD

I don't have the info for Robert Inkpen and not sure if he was married or not - I know that we are more than likely related if he comes from Burin NFLD as all of the family line comes from that area and still to this day - there are family members down in Burin NFLD.

Do you have any other info on Robert Inkpen - as it would be helpful - the last Robert Inkpen that I have is a Robert born in 1817 and died Aug 1837 who was Robert's second son - but it is a name that is in the family line
I wish I had more info for you - I did find my cousin and my brother and I also have a sister- they live in NB and my brother is in Halifax area - alot of my family line lives in Boutliers Point - Nova Scotia - but came from Burin NFLD originally- so I am sure we must be related somehow - very interesting that this Robert had a daughter named Ivy !!!! I am positive we must be related as this is just too coincidential for it not to be !!!!

You can reach me at and we can start to put the puzzle pieces together - I will ask my cousin Bonnie as I know she has alot of info on the family!!!!

Take care and hope to chat with you again - tell me where you live in your next email -
Thank you
