Thank you Sancti.

Robert's father is William Devonnport, Miner and Kate's father is Henry Sylvester, Copper Worker on marriage cert in 1891.

I have a suspicion that William Devonnport came from Northern Ireland (Armagh/ Down area) and worked in the Lancashire coal field.  Maybe Wigan or Burnley - will need to research. Thanks for your help.
