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.18.

  • Also known as Geertruid.
  • , On 25 Nov 1818, Mary Brower, widow of Abraham Brower deceased, and on behalf of the descendants of Jeremiah Brower deceased, petitioned the U.S. Congress (Committee of Pensions and Revolutionary Claims) seeking renumeration for losses incurred in August of 1776, when the house, barn, mill, and other property belonging jointly to Abraham and Jeremiah Brower were destroyed during the Battle of Long Island. The claiments were listed as "Mary Brower, widow of Abraham Brower deceased...Lawrence Brower, George Brower, Sarah Vachter, Charity Tidemon, Benjamin Van Cleve and Anna his wife, John Shannon and Rebecca his wife, heirs of Jeremiah Brower deceased." The petition was rejected on 30 Nov 1818.5
  • Charity Brouwer was living in 1818.2
  • "Charity (Geertje) Tedenum is mentioned in the will of Charity Brouwer, widow of Jeremiah Brouwer. Although not proven, it would seem quite possible that she is a daughter of Jeury (Jeremiah) Brouwer, and Charity Stillwell, named for her mother. She could have been born after Jeury made his will in 1754, since she did not marry until 1782; and when the will was made (it was not proved until 1785) Jeury and Charity had been married only seven years."6

Charity Stillwell being the second wife of Jeury Brouwer, Sr. Jeury died before Charity, thus she was his widow when she eventually died.
    Notice that she Wills a black velvet cloak to CHARITY TEDENUM. I wiull identify this lady as Charity Brower, d/o Jeremiah Brower and Mary TIDEMON. The 1818 congressional petition identifies her as Charity Tidemon. The relaitionship between the lady making out the Will, and the younger lady to recieve the claok is this: The older lady would be her Father's Uncle's second wife. This is not a close relationship, but perhaps the younger girl had been kind to the old lady, something of that sort.". Hereinafter cited as "L. Martin e-mail 1-8-2007."

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.16.

Cornelia Brouwer1

b. 8 April 1775
  • Cornelia Brouwer was born on 8 April 1775.2
  • She was baptized on 1 October 1777 at Reformed Dutch Church, Albany, New York; sponsors Wiliam Conclin, Jane Brouwer.2
  • She married James Tarrant between 1807 and 1809.3
  • Also known as Catherina Brouwer.4
  • Catherine is named in her father's will, listed last among the daughters. (Cornelia is not named in her father's will dated 17 Sep 1777, although she was baptized on October 1st of that year).5
  • Note*: 5
  • It appears that Nicholas Brouwer's daughters, Cornelia and Catherine, are one and the same. Catherine is not named as a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer and Sarah Drake by Martha Pitcairn (who would be her niece). Martha does mention Cornelia Brower and states that she married James Tarrant. However, another document refers to "Catherine Tarrant." Catherine is named in her father's will (1777) while Cornelia is not. In a letter from Robert Pitcairn to "Mr. Prince," he refers to the six daughters of Nicholas Brower, namely Jane, Elizabeth, Mary, Sarah, Lany and Catherine. ( Another possibility may be that Cornelia died at a young age, and Catherine, still young herself, then was given her older sister's name). It is noted that no baptism record for Catherine has been found, while a baptism record for Cornelia does exist.3,6

Hoffman (1947) states that the position of Cornelis within the Brouwer family genealogy is yet to be determined. He is possibly a son of Cornelis Brouwer and Hannah Hilton. According to DAR Lineage records he was born in Wappinger's Falls, New York, and served under Capt. (Nicholas) Brower during the Revolution. However, Cornelis does not fit into the Nicholas Brouwer (Sr.) of Wappinger Falls, later Albany, chronologically. This family, for now, seems to be the most appropriate fit..

Over the past many years I have heard from at least 12 others who have claimed that this Jane Brouwer was the daughter of Sybrant
    Brouwer and his wife Sara Webber- - Sybrant being the son of Jacobus Brouwer and Anna Bogardus. I had never confirmed this connection, of course, and had advised each one that this Jane was more likely in the line of descent from one of the other brothers of Jacobus - - probably Nicholas. When I received the abstracted data from the Supreme Court case I referred to in my e-mail of Feb. 25, 2007, Subj: "Family of Nicholas BROWER".. that was when I first learned that Nicholas and Jannetje Colyer had a son Nazareth - - and thus also the more complete family of Nicholas and Jannetje
    as I had outlined. I do not know the dates of birth or baptism of the children of Nazareth Brouwer and Ann Rozell, except that of Cornelius who was born 9 Nov 1730, who married Mary Archer.
    I can also advise that there is an excellent lineage from Nazareth Brower Hill and Catherine Edwards in Volume II - Part I, of "Loyalist Lineages of Canada", published by the Toronto Branch of The United Empire Loyalists' Association of Canada, 1991, pp. 513-515.
