Robert was the son of James Green or Gzren and Mary Burton and was born in Red Cross Street, Liverpool.
He married Jane Nelson of Orsmkirk, a town some 14 miles North of Liverpool, a long distance in 1778.
Their first child was born in 1781 and named William. At that time they were living in Preston Street, a narrow street in the heart of Liverpool.Peggy, Betty, another William and Alice all follow at that address. But by Margaret’s birth in 1790, they have moved to Shawhill Street, where they have two more children, Henry and Robert.From the children’s birth records we can see that Robert is recorded as working as a labourer.
