- Henry Brasier (d. aft. 1689) m. 1644 Susanna (Sommers) Watkins (d. aft. 1694); New York, N. Y.
- Rebecca Brasier (16481700) m. Peter Tilton (16421699); Gravesend, N. Y.; Shrewsbury, Middletown, N. J.
Accounts of this family appear in Richard Henry Greene,
Genealogy of the Family Named Brasier, Brasher, Breser, Bresart, Bradejor, New York Genealogical and Biographical Record 27 (1896): 37-42, and
William J. Hoffman,
The Founders of the Bras(s), Brasser, Bresser, Bries and Brasier Families in America, American Genealogist 21 (1944/5): 147-58. Hoffman notes (p. 157) that Susannas surname was
given as Sommers at her first marriage, and Thomas at her second. A few records suggest that she was the daughter of Thomas Spicer, and Susan, wife of Henry Brasier, is mentioned in Thomass will,
but not as a child. No member of the Spicer family witnessed the baptism of any of Susannas children. Hoffman regards her identification as a daughter of Thomas as unproven.
No additional informaton about the ancestors of Susanna Sommers is available at this time.
