It seems reasonable to presume that most of Robert's children, including his eldest son, were by Robert's 1st wife because BLG1886 does not even mention Jean, his 2nd wife who is identified in BLG1952. However, since he died leaving 19 children, it is likely that at least some of his children were by his 2nd wife.
