The Prima official game guide stated that Robert was the late husband of Miss Crumplebottom (referred to erroneously as Mrs. Crumplebottom in the guide). However, The Sims 3 confirms that Miss Crumplebottom's late husband was named Erik Darling, creating a small plot inconsistency (unless Agnes married Robert later in life, only to be widowed again. Assuming Robert wasn't born a Crumplebottom or his kinship with Agnes being distant enough). It may be that canonically Robert Crumplebottom was in fact the husband of Mrs. Crumplebottom, a different character often confused with Miss Crumplebottom, who appeared in The Sims 2 Nightlife.
