Other facts



Robert suffered from frequent sever headaches and fainting fits


  • Robert Kingsman was born on the 4th August 1842 at Stourbridge.  His father is recorded as being William Kingsman "a Private in her Majesty's Regiment of Third Dragoon Guards".  His mother is given as Sophia Vince, and his father registered the birth on the same day.

    From his wife's diary in 1891 Robert was not a very well man, he was prone to frequent debilitating headaches and fainting fits.

    They lived in the vicinity of Lake Sauleen (Castlebar, Co. Mayo) and Spencer Street was within walking distance.

    They lived in a fairly substantial house.  At one time they cleared the kitchen furniture into the yard and could dance a whole set of quadrilles in the kitchen with three families present.

    They were affluent enough to take time mid-week to go to Westport on the train, go dancing, go to a show and stay overnight in a hotel.  They were friends with Doctors,  an Army (?) Captain and families who owned cars (in 1891!).
