He occupied the same tract as patented by his father Rowland (in New Kent County 1672) and in that part of Hanover erected from New Kent in November 1720.
About 1699, Robert Horsley married in New Kent County Frances Bassett who was born in St. Peter's Parish, New Kent County about 1676-1678 and died after her husband in 1733 in Goochland County. Frances was the daughter of William Bassett, born ca. 1643 in York County; died before May 1724 in St. Peter's Parish, New Kent County, who married Anne, surname not yet identified who was born about 1645. The vestry book of St. Peter's lists the Bassett and Horsley families as neighbors so Robert and Frances may have known each other from childhood. William Bassett was sheriff of New Kent County in 1699 and was a member of the vestry of St. Peter's, serving as churchwarden in August 1700.
