Robert Brevard was born in Cecil County, Maryland. Robert married Sarah Craig. Robert migrated to Rowan County. He entered upon land at the headwaters of Rocky River. He petitioned the Council of North Carolina for a land warrant of 649 acres on September 29, 1749 and again on March 28, 1751 for another 640 acres. Lord Granville granted him 640 acres on Rocky River in Anson County on March 25, 1752. On January 29, 1755 Granville made a further grant to him of 102 acres, again on Rocky River.

Robert taught school in Rowan County before the Revolution. During the Revolution he served with Captain James Houston's Company of North Carolina Rangers in present day Randolph County, North Carolina. Following the war, he made a claim to the House of Commons and Senate of the State of North Carolina in 1785.

Robert and Sarah lived and died in Iredell County, North Carolina. Robert drew up his will in August, 1797, three years before his death. In his will, he bequeathed tracts of land to his two youngest daughters. Apparently, they were unmarried at the time, so this would have been a dowry for their future use. To his son Robert, he left "my still and Vessels" and "appraisement of a horse lost in the service of the United States".

On an undated, unidentified piece of paper in the possession of Gene Wheeler, an apparent photocopy of a typed list, appears a list of the children of Robert and Sarah Brevard and their dates of birth and/or death. At the bottom of the list is typed: "(This is an exact copy of the entries in the Brevard bible in the possession of Mrs. Alberta Malugen, Poplar Bluff, Mo.)" The origin of this photocopy is unknown. In the very bottom left corner, the number "387" is handwritten, much like a page number. It reads as follows. Note that Sarah's surname is given as "Crain".

While researching the name "Alberta Malugen" with "Poplar Bluff" and "Brevard", I found additional material that is presented as having been an extension of the above information. It states "On a separate sheet, and in different handwriting, as follows:" This is a list of marriages of the children of Robert and Sarah, and repeats the birth/death information referred to above. Note, however, that this list gives Sarah's surname as "Craig". [This source was found 14 Jan 2012 at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hatcher/Brevard.htm]

Below is the first list, as given by both sources, the only difference being Sarah's surname:

Robert Brevard was born June 10, 1718 died Feb. 24, 1800.
Sarah Crain [/ Craig] born 22 of March 1728 died Jan 23rd 1807.
They were married April 10, 1744.
Joel was born June 1745 died March 1781.
Margaret - - April 7, 1747 died Feb. 1752.
Elizabeth - - Dec. 20, 1748
Sarah was born April 20, 1751 - died July 11, 1824
Margaret - - Jan 12, 1754 died Sept 11, 1790
Asenath - - Dec 26, 1755
Jane was born Jan 6th, 1758 died Sept. 1760
Lydia - - - 25th of Dec., 1759 died 30 of June 1777.
Robert was born 18 July 1763
Mary - - - - - 22 of May 1765 & died March 1, 1812.
Jane was born 9 of March, 1767
Charlotte was born Dec. 1769
Prudence was born Jan 4, 1772
Alexander McClean died Dec. 21st, 1780. Age 36.

This is a correct copy of the records in the Brevard Bible in the possession of Mrs. Alberta Malugen, Poplar Bluff, MO
