Sorry, I only have one sibling for Robt Emmet Sr and that's Thomas Emmet, born 2 June 1728.
Their father Christopher Emmet was born 1702 in County Tipperary and died there 26 August 1743. His parents were Thomas and Mary Emmet but that's all I know.
The mother of Robert Emmet Sr was Rebecca Temple and I do have heaps about her. Her father was Thomas Temple, died 1694 in Stanton Bury, Buckinghamshire (married to Agnes White). His father was Purbeck Temple, born about 1624 in Addiscombe, Surrey; died August 1695 in Islington, London (married to Sarah Draper). Purbeck is the youngest of 8 children of John Temple, born 10 November 1593 in Stanton Bury, Buckinghamshire; died 23 September 1632 in Biddlesden, Buckinghamshire (married to Dorothy Lee). The Temples are quite a famous family, allegedly descended from Alfred the Great; and there is quite a lot of intermarriage between Temples and Emmets.
