Robert Crossman came to America with his father about 1634 and settled in Dedham, MA. He signed the covenant for Government of the Town of Dedham in 1636 and was admitted to the township of Dedham in 1642. It was also in 1642 that he began to accumulate land in the Dedham area. On May 26, 1649 along with Anthony Fisher, Robert made claim to a mine for metal ore. Robert apparently worked as an apprentice to Joseph Kingsbury who eventually became his father-in-law.

He moved to Taunton, MA in 1653 with his wife and daughter and built an Iron Works there. They bought their home on Dean Street from Captain Foster. He was a carpenter and considered a very skilled mechanic. Known as "The Drum Maker of New England" and as "The Gun Maker" he fitted the soldiers from Taunton with guns and drums for the Canada Expedition under Sir William Phipps, Captain Samuel Gallup's Company in 1690. Robert's youngest son, Thomas, was a part of that expedition.

As a testament to his great skill, the townsmen of Dedham enlisted him to build a water mill for them in what was to later become Wrentham, MA on June 28, 1672. He was also in demand as a surveyor for the new highways needed for the commerce that was developing.

Like his father-in-law, Joseph Kingsbury, Robert demonstrated the Puritan work ethic, and the strong minded temperment. The court records note more than one occasion where Robert was reprimanded for his disagreeable manner.

Assisted in buildings g the ancient iron works of Taunton. Married, May 25, 1652 Sarah Kingsbury of Dedham. He married 2d, 1688 Mrs. Martha Easton who died 1695. He died 1692.

Robert Crossman fitted out with guns and drum the soldiers in Capt. Samuel Gallop's Co. for the Canada expedition under Sir William Phipps in 1690.

Sarah was still alive apparently in 1660, as a Margaret Kingsbury of Dedham refers to her in her will as Sarah Crosseman, the wife of Robert Crosseman, of Taunton, and bequeaths 5 within three "moneths after my deccase."
