Edits for Robert Hughes (d. 1728/29): Robert is my wife's 1st cousin, 8x removed). He was born 10 Jan 1661 in Deptford, Kent. His parents were Thomas Hughes and Elizabeth Trankmore. He married Lydia Gunman, daughter of Captain Christopher Gunman. He was not the brother of Richard Hughes (1670-1756), but rather was his 1st cousin. The rest looks good.
