  • The Elmira Star Gazette, September 1, 1910, covering the 26th Brewer family reunion, included the following, erroneous, account of the families origins: "The members of the Brewer family of various names, through marriage are descendents of Hendrick Brewer, who came to America before the Revolution and purchased 160 acres of land on Manhattan Island where Trinity Church now stands. He had seven sons who served in Washington’s army. Two of his grandsons, Johnson and William Brewer; Sons of Johnson Brewer, came from Fishkill Landing to Trumansburg, Tompkins County, New York, when this section of the country was called the “West.”" (While William and Johnson/Johnston or Jonathan did go to Tompkins County from Fishkill, they were sons of Hendrick/Henry Brouwer, who was not an immigrant, rather was likely a 3rd great-grandson of Adam Brouwer. He never owned 160 acres on Manhattan Island).10

Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio. Privately printed. This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. This account had been proved a fantasy long before 1988, and its inclusion in the reprint edition is unfortunate. The account of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer is also in error, and there may be other errors with the earlier Brouwer generations. Latter generations are recounted by descendants who lived in the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, and the ancestors who they describe were their parents and grandparents. In addition to the original work of Bertha C. Spencer, the "re-publisher" Sharon Brewer Dodge, includes her own Brewer lineage with the unproved claim that her ancestor, Willis Brewer of North Carolina, was a son of Jacob Brouwer (b.1709) and a grandson of Sijbrandt Brouwer & Sarah Webber of New York City. There is also a short note from William B. Bogardus who questions this connection. No factual or supporting evidence that would tie Willis Brewer of North Carolina (late 1700s) to any of the Brouwer families of New Netherland has been found. Appendix p.C. No additional information is provided. Further research is required .. Hereinafter cited as Three Hundred Years in America.

William Brewer1

  • "I understand that at one time he lived near Koshocton, Ohio."2
  • Other then being mentioned in the diary of James A. Brewer, nothing has been discovered to confirm the existence of William Brewer. As Mathew Brower's claimed son, Jacob Brewer, was not mentioned by James A. Brewer, and as Jacob Brewer lived in Coshocton County, Ohio at the time of his death, which is the same location that James A. Brewer stated that William Brewer lived "near," it is possible that James A. Brewer simply did not recall correctly the name of Jacob Brewer and incorrectly stated his name as, William.

Content of the interview was related to Chris Chester, by Paul Brewer via e-mail dated 20 Dec 2008. "I talked with a Mrs. Lorna (Estey) Estey, whose mother was a good friend of Bessie Brewer Stewart. She confirmed what we suspected. When Ensley Brewer's wife left him, Bessie was raised by the Stewart family. She married Daniel Estey and had a large family. They lived on the Banks Road in Durham, and later at Taymouth. She gave me the names of the children and I will follow up on that. One daughter is living in Marysville. She also told me that it was her great-grandfather, Arthur O'Neill that ran off with Ensley's wife. She said that it was something that was never talked about. Apparently when they got to Maine she left Arthur and he came home "with his tail between his legs." He lived separately in another house for a while but eventually moved back home. Lorna was not sure if her name was Alice Pond or Alice Whitlock."

Bogardus Collection, Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, Wilmington, Ohio. Privately printed. This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. This account had been proved a fantasy long before 1988, and its inclusion in the reprint edition is unfortunate. The account of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer is also in error, and there may be other errors with the earlier Brouwer generations. Latter generations are recounted by descendants who lived in the latter part of the 19th and first half of the 20th centuries, and the ancestors who they describe were their parents and grandparents. In addition to the original work of Bertha C. Spencer, the "re-publisher" Sharon Brewer Dodge, includes her own Brewer lineage with the unproved claim that her ancestor, Willis Brewer of North Carolina, was a son of Jacob Brouwer (b.1709) and a grandson of Sijbrandt Brouwer & Sarah Webber of New York City. There is also a short note from William B. Bogardus who questions this connection. No factual or supporting evidence that would tie Willis Brewer of North Carolina (late 1700s) to any of the Brouwer families of New Netherland has been found. p.22.
