Robert Willan (1543 – February 1614) was an English farmer and the 13th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line. Born at Willanhouses (today called Willans Farm) in Dent, Yorkshire (in modern-day Cumbria), Robert was the son of Edmund Willan, after whom he named his own son who was born in 1573, and Margret Capstack. Robert is known to have married a lady named Isabell Harper in 1573 in Dent. Robert is recorded as having been buried on 15th February 1614 also in Dent, likely at St Andrew’s Church.

In Cometanic ancestry, Robert is categorised as part of the 15th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
