Biographical notes: Robinsons do not appear in the 1830 or 1840 Nantucket censuses, but in a court case in 1836 John Robinson gave a deposition in a court inquiry into the shipping of his son John Robinson Jr. aboard the ship Three Brothers. John Jr. was underage when Arthur Cooper, acting as agent for the owners of the whaler, signed him on without John Sr.’s permission.
