Bingo! The ordination records you found do give Robert's birth as being Bunbury, Cheshire abt. 1537. Unfortunately the parish records for St. Bonifaces Bunbury only seem to start in 1559...
I notice that Cheshire Records Office has a will ordering service. There seem to be a couple of REDROPP wills from Bunbury around the right time which may be worth looking at. I guess some of the REDROPP wills from surrounding parishes may also be worth a gander. Fingers crossed they may mention Robert REDROPP.
