This land became the foundations of Marton. Robert married Elizabeth Brunger in 1851 and they had 10 children. Robert and Ann sailed to NZ on SS London in 1840 with their parents William and Deborah Signal and 3 siblings.

Robert was married 3 times and died aged 56 in 1885 and had fathered 15 children and he also had step children.
