A Brashear s Family History, Vol. Charles Brashear based much of his initial information on the work of Col. Troy Back who stated even in that "with the exceptions of Robert and Florence, the relationship of the persons named in the land patent of is not shown. Since it was customary to show the children of those listed, as such, it can be assumed that a parent-child relationship did not exist in this group.
It seems likely that, other than Florence, they were brothers and sisters. Our particular Robert Brasseur came to the new world very early in the development of the Virginia Colony. Jamestown was first established in and Robert Brassieur is assumed to be here already by At this date the total population of Virginia was only a few thousand.
According to Troy Back, "George Washington's great-grandfather, was only four years old and the Declaration of Independence would not be signed for another one hundred and thirty-nine years.
Charles Brashear is convinced that we have no idea who Robert's wife may have been. Several researchers have listed that Robert was married to Elizabeth Fowke of France and others that it was Florence. He has found no evidence to support either of these marriages to this first Robert. It does not appear that Robert Brashear owned the land on which he lived but three months later he files the following patent registered as "Robert Brassure and Peter Rey" on "Warrisquicke Creeke and butting upon Nanzemond river".
These patents were intended to reimburse the colonist for the Im On The Battlefield - The Brashear Family - Baisc.But.Original of the passage. Each person that paid their own way or the passage of another was given fifty acres. Robert's patent was for twenty-four persons including "Robert Brasseur, Florence his wife, Mary Brasseur, Persid undoubtedly intended for the French feminine name "Perside" Brasseur, Kathe.

Pursell, Ra. Ellis, and Jon. Also on this datea patent was issued to Benjamin Brasseur for three hundred acres on a "a creeke called Indian Creeke being a branch of Nansemum river" for the cost of trasporting six persons into the the colony. Since Benjamin was given a patent it seems reasonable to assume that Robert and Benjamin were traveling together and that both of them had been in the colony before November 24, It is conceivable that Robert Brasseiur Sr was the individual here earlier as Russ Williams contends and that both Robert Jr and Benjamin came later but my bet is with the brothers.
Benjamin's patent was renewed and recorded again on March 26, It was an apparent precaution against litigation. Cheryl's Family Index email to Cheryl Grubb.
