Is this the record of Robert's death?

Spalding is in Lincolnshire, about 40 miles south of Lincoln.

In 1786 our Robert would be 26.
we know that the Drewrys of Lincoln have links with the Drewrys of London. For example, Robert's brother, Samuel, is in Westminster in 1789.

A mercer is a merchant specializing in textiles.
Interestingly, we have a reference to a Samuel Drewry as a merchant in 1797 in Westminster.

This Samuel could be Robert's brother, our Samuel.

Coincidentally, Tillotson Laycock, the father of Samuel and Robert's step-father, is recorded as a mercer in 1748.
