About Robert Darling


[brother of GD]

From Grace Darling Website

Born Brownsman Light, 29 March 1814 Died Alnwick, 10 August 1877, age 63

Robert was the third son of the Darlings. Unusually for a Darling child he was sent to school at Bamburgh Castle, possibly as a boarder. In June 1831 he became apprenticed to a stonemason in Belford and made this his trade. Robert was a strong swimmer; when he was 20 he helped in a dramatic sea rescue whilst back home one Christmas. He married Elizabeth Pye from Gateshead in 1838 and established himself in Newcastle. Robert and Elizabeth had one daughter, Elizabeth Grace.
