Biography

Birthplace and date on one of the merged profiles was given as Calvert County, Maryland, 1660. This is validated through her marriage information. It is well documented that the family moved from Virginia to Maryland in 1658.
The surname is variously seen as Brasseur, Brasher, Brashear, Brashears, and Brassieur, among others. One source claims there are more than 35 variant spellings among the various descendants. The original French spelling is most frequently given as Brasseur, but even this is less than completely certain. Her father's given name appears as Benois, Benoit, Bennet, and Benjamin, and there may be others. His birth date ranges from about 1590 to about 1630. Robert is said to be his father, his brother, and also that both his father and brother were named Robert. Nearly everyone agrees he was born in France, but several different specific locations in France are given.
Both book and internet sources vary wildly in their statements regarding nearly everything about about the family. I salute anyone who can sort out the seemingly endless conflicts and contradictions regarding this family and present credible evidence for what is fact and what is not.

Brashear-161 and Brasseur-5 appear to represent the same person because: Approximate date of birth, surname is approximate match given parameters defined with the other last names, furthermore married to a duplicate spouse. The merge direction needs to be 161 into 5
