Hello Sue

It was Alec who added the Stevens spelling :-)

Ok, a bit more detail...

Robert Stephens, Travellers Rest, Cobbaton, Parish of Swimbridge 1848 - 21
sept 1938
Wife Jane Stephens (nee Scaife/Skaife) 1857 - 12th June 1921

Frances Bensen Stephens, Buried in Swimbridge - no other information - Died
Unsure of link to above, but Bensen is a name in Jane Stephens family...

I have no other information on Robert Stephens as of yet.

I am hoping to find links to Robert Stephens in particular....
