    Robert was an upholsterer who lived at St Martin's Le Grande in the city of London (information provided by Frances on a census form conducted on 5th November, 1831). However, he may also have been a steam boat owner on the Thames, as this is the information provided by James Crump on the death certificate of Frances when she died at Castlemaine in 1879. It is possible that James was wrong in the information that he provided - but it is also possible that both are correct and that he changed occupations. The Prickett family appears to have been well off.
    Robert's will named his wife as Sarah - see discussion on Frances' page.
