However Douglas Richardson in his Plantagenet Ancestry has more details , and I agree with him making this Sir Robert a son of the 1st Duke of Exeter. Cahiers de Saint Louis gave as sources The Complete Peerage, Vivian's Visitations of Cornwall and Visitation of Devon 1564.

Leo:

The descent goes through the Walter Kendall who married Jane Rous and
involves a total of 12 generations of Kendalls (the first few
generations are also ancestors of Princess Diana). I'll send you the
details off-line.
