A tree on FS says Robert's father was Richard Craycraft , christened 17 Oct 1734 at Holy Trinity the Less, London, and married to Elizabeth, who was buried 11 Sept 1801 at St Laurence-in-Thanet's Church, Ramsgate.

That will be this one:

Elizabeth Cracraft
in the England, Select Deaths and Burials, 1538-1991
Name: Elizabeth Cracraft
Gender: Female
Marital status: Married
Burial Date: 11 Sep 1801
Burial Place: St. Lawrence, Kent, England
Spouse: Richard
FHL Film Number: 1850280
Reference ID: Item1 pg153 ln2


This is the christening the tree owner thinks is Richard's - but could be a different person:

Richard Cracraft

Name: Richard Cracraft
Gender: Male
Baptism Date: 17 Oct 1734
Baptism Place: Holy Trinity The Less,London,London,England
