  TSP does not mention this Robert having any daughters but it is thought likely that the following were his. The only plausible alternative is the Robert of Hiltoun and Ochiltree shown below as having died at Flodden. However, whilst omitting all daughters for this Robert would at least be consistent, it would have been strange for TSP to detail the illegitimate children of the Robert below and then omit daughters who made good marriages.
