From his father (a lighthouse designer) he got his love of the sea and adventure, and his grandfather, a professor of moral philosophy, he developed his sense of morality.

During this period he wrote some of his best known works – Treasure Island, Kidnapped and Jekyll and Hyde. When his father passed away in 1887. Robert took his mother and family to the United States.
