There's actually 5 brothers

William Spencer Lt.-1601-Bedfordshire, England-1640-Hartford,Conn, USA

Thomas Spencer-1607-Bedfordshire, England-1687-Hartford, Conn, USA

Michael Spencer-1611-Bedfordshire, England-1653-Essex,Mass., USA

Gerard Spencer II-1614-Bedfordshire, England-1685-Middlesex, Conn, USA

Timothy Spencer-1616–Bedfordshire, England-1704-Middlesex, Conn, USA
Looks like there's been a bad merge.  Spencer-213 should probably have been merged with Spencer-1717, but not with Spencer-206.

As a result, most of the bio on Spencer-206 doesn't belong there.  It should probably be moved to Spencer-1717 as a 1st approximation.
Or maybe it was a disposal merge, and son Robert should have been snipped off in the process.

Without knowing names of the right four brothers, this question cannot be answered.

Go to Diana's father's profile.  Use the DNA tool in the drop down menu to find his list of yDNA ancestors.  Go to William Spencer of the four bros. and do the same.
