    I dare say he was, Gary, and he died in 1852 in the course of his duties. But the loony had a master, with whom he had lived nine years :

    Er... Where did I say that?

    Robert's son Robert was a Brasenose-educated reverend gentleman, I think.

    There's the will of 1825 where Robert Wildbore of Tilton on the Hill, gentleman, mentions his sons Robert and Frederick.

    Ok, but there are no RWs that could be our Robert Wildbore.

    Ah.

    And then in 1846 to the Leicester County Asylum.

    Robert,

    Tilton had less than 200 inhabitants in 1841. Those shown as 'graziers' all had servants living with them.


    Did you spot the RW of Leicester who was convicted of rape in 1832 and committed to Derby Lunatic Asylum?

    So Robert and Charles Wildbore were not brothers.

    Not necessarily - Rev Charles Wildbore, JLW's dad, was born around the same time as Robert but in Nottinghamshire, so the question is where was Robert born?

    But he's born in Tilton, so presumably related to his Tilton contemporary, Fred, in some way?
