Hi

There doesn't seem to be a baptism record for him 1816 +/- 2 in Hoddom but I see from Family Search that he was alive after 1855 so, if he died in Scotland, you would be able to obtain his death cert from Scotlands People (Pay site - I think you have the ref). This will probably give his parents names.  Also the children's names can help if they followed the traditional naming conventions.

Several trees on An''''''''y has this as the parents names as Gadget said death certificate for Robert will confirm the parent's names ...Old Parish records have a list of children born to this couple but don't see anything for Robert also
