It is related of Robert that he and young Francis Swayne were devotedly attached to each other in England, and that when the Swaynes came to America, Robert, not being able to content himself without his friend, determined to follow him. His father endeavored to dissuade him at first, but, seeing he was determined, paid his passage to America. He landed at Philadelphia, not knowing where the Swaynes lived, but while walking along the streets, unresolved yet what to do to find them, he espied old Francis Swayne; following him at a distance, he at last saw him enter a house, and, not
daring to follow him in, remained at the door till the old man came out again, who, on seeing him, exclaimed, good-humoredly, "Why, Bob! what brought thee here?" Francis knowing that he would have to take care of him, brought him home behind him on horseback, and when within a short distance of his house he left Robert under a tree and proceeded home. He then directed his son Francis to go to the place where he had left Robert, not telling him what for, but to go there. He went, and to his surprise there met his friend, whom he had supposed was yet in England. That their mutual surprise and joy was great we cannot doubt. They repaired to the house, and young Lamborn afterwards married his friend’s sister. In Francis Swayne's will dated 15 February 1721 at Chester, Pennsylvania, Sarah Swayne was named as an heir.
