Robert Stephenson (1803-1859) was an English civil engineer and the only son of George Stephenson. Similar to his father's lifetime of work, he spent his early years working in locomotive construction and railway engineering, however he was known also for his bridge building. He was responsible for many of the bridges in the United Kingdom, including the Britannia Bridge across the Menai Strait.
