Re: BACHELET / CASSISTA BRASSLETT / BRASSLEY
Thanks first of all for more different spellings..lol..
surnames: Le BACCHELET/BACHELET/BRASSLET/BRASELAY/BRASSELET.etc
Origin- Normany, France>>Canada>>Maine.
A lot of the Canadians who stayed in Maine after the War, changed their last names to English names( ex: BRASSLET to BRASSLEY..this is where varied spellings occured mostly.
"dit" = it is a nickname of sorts to different branches of a family's name..to distinguish one from another..thats what i was told..
So the above surnames to dit-CASSISTA(also spelled CASISTA) was formed..heard a french man pronounce it from Island Falls, Maine as "cuss sea toe" and here is what I have.(Hope this is helpful)
