We know very little about Robert Beardmore. We believe his wife was Anne and that they had two children: Sampson (1658-1713) and Thomas (-1702). In 1666 Robert paid tax on three hearths which suggests that he had a reasonably large home.

Robert’s will was dated 25th March 1684 and tithes were left to his sons. He was buried as ‘senex’ – an old man – at Alton, Staffordshire on September 9th 1684.
