I do not have much as I concentrate on the Frewen line. Rev. Robert Martin M.A. (b? - d 11 July 1871) was the oldest surviving son of William Martin of Anstey Pastures in Leicestershire. The family is recorded in Burke's Landed Gentry under "Martin of the Brand," so a bit of library research will give you what you need. He and Selina married on March 14 1839 and had 8 children, 4 of each. I do not have birth dates, but the names are Robert, William, John, Charles, Eleanor, Selina, Elizabeth and Maria.
Selina's father was Col. John Frewen Turner,(1755- 1 Feb 1829, married 1808) a JP and High Sherriff of Leics who owned an estate called Cold Overton in Leics. The Frewens also had other property there and in Yorkshire. John FT assumed the additional name Turner in the late 1700's to comply with the terms of a will which brought him Cold Overton. He also had property in Ireland and was MP for Athlone 1807-12.
