How to merge duplicate users

I'm not really sure what's going on but I have two users for one person (see image).

How can I merge the two accounts together?

E: Amending the authors as below was a step in the right direction. The repo only shows one contributor but on the people page "Ashton" still exists and the commit was essentially duplicated. Is this a bug in Stash?

git rebase -i --root
Change "pick" => "edit" @ line 1
git commit --amend --author="Ashton Ward <EMAIL>"
git rebase --continue
git push -f origin master

In Stash, especially for commits, users are determined by the Display Name and then Email address. You'll have to fix the commit authors to get this right.

If you are committing from several computers, make sure you are using the same .gitconfig settings (name, e-mail).

Amending the repo was a step in the right direction though now the commit appears to be duplicated on the people page (see edit in answer). Is this a bug in Stash?

I am not sure on that. Maybe there is a cache somewhere in Stash. Try restarting Stash?

Restarting Stash had no effect. My guess is the database wasn't updated.
