History of the Name of the Herbert River

Because the surname "Hebert" looks so much like "Herbert", it is frequently misspelled, and when I first saw reference to the Herbert River in Hants County, Nova Scotia, what came to mind was the Bear River at Digby, Nova Scotia. It appears as "Hebert R" (probably for early explorer Louis Hebert) on Lescarbot's 1609 map. By 1720, "Hebert R" had become "Beare R".
