Overview
Excerpt from Memorial of Hon. Toppan Robie
Hon. Toppan Robie was born in Candia, N. H., Jan. 27, 1782, and died at his residence in Gorham, Jan. 14, 1871. The immediate cause of his death was inflammation of the bladder and kidneys, brought on by a slight cold.
Mr. Robie was the fourth child of Edward and Sarah (Smith) Robie. His grandfather was Samuel, son of Ichabod, son of John Robie, who came to this country from some part of Great Britain and settled in the town of Atkinson, N. H., about the year 1660. Mr. Robie's mother was the daughter of John Smith and Sarah Toppan, of Hampton, N. H. Hence, through his maternal grandmother came his somewhat peculiar christian name. His parents removed from Chester, N. H., to Candia in 1780, and when he was about four years old they returned to Chester, where they lived the remainder of their days. His father died at the age of 92, his mother at 89. He had three brothers and two sisters, of whom he was the sole survivor. His early opportunities for acquiring even a common school education were limited. When eight or nine years old he went to live with his grandmother Smith - then Webster, by her second marriage; being a great favorite with her, partly no doubt on account of his christian name. He remained the greater part of the time until he was fourteen with her and her son Edmund Webster, who was perhaps the most active and influential merchant in the town. He attended the town school when there was one, and was occasionally sent by his uncle to a private school, where he was taught only reading, writing and arithmetic.
But it was during these years that his future course was shaped.
