The original name was Robert - French, pronounced Robair - and became changed to Robar after they came from Montbelliard,France, to Lunenburg in 1753. There were two men named Robar - Abraham Robar and David Robar. I think all the Robars in NS are descended from one or the other. Our line is from Abraham. One of his descendants named John Robar came to Digby and married Martha Banks. They had a son named Eliphalet Robar, and most of the Robars in Annapolis and Digby counties are descended from him. I have a fairly good geneology and I don't find any Vernon among them. My guess would be that you or your father comes from down Lunenburg way and I have very little on that branch of the family.
