bullet  Research Notes:

The IGI records his birth "abt 1766" , and a Robert Edwards Julius is recorded in the IGI as bapt 15 Aug 1757 Wokingham Berkshire, a Robert bapt 17 June 1759 also at Wokingham. These contradictions are ignored and the Australian research dates have been adopted until LDS film 1279477 is searched and the matter clarified.
