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.16.

Derck Jansz Brouwer1

b. circa 1666, d. 1702 or 1703
  • Derck Jansz Brouwer was probably born circa 1666 at Flatlands, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.
  • He married Hannah Daws, daughter of Elias Daws and Anna, at Flatlands, Long Island, New York, on 6 October 1694.2
  • Derck Jansz Brouwer probably died in 1702 or 1703 at Jamaica, Queens Co., Long Island, New York.
  • Also known as Dirck Brouwer.
  • He took the Oath of Allegiance in September 1687 at Flatlands, Kings Co., New York, as "Dirck brouwer, native."3
  • Served in the NY Militia under Maj. Peter Schuyler, 1691-92 during King William's War.4
  • By a deed dated 25 Sep 1694 (Gravesend Book VI, p.136) Peter Carsten of Cape May in the province of West Jersey, sold to Cornelis Williamsen and Dirck Brower, two "allotments of land lying and being in the limitts and bounds of Gravesend upon Gisberts Island...land received from William Goulding living then in this towne of Gravesend."5
  • "Derick Brewer & his wife Hannah," with one child are listed among the Dutch Inhabitants of the Town of Flushing, Queens County, Long Island in 1698.6
  • "Dirrick Brewer of Jamaica and Hendrick Brouwer of Flatlands" sold a house and 75 acres on the borders of Hempstead, Jamaica, and Flushing with a deed of sale dated 22 September 1700 and acknowledged 6 May 1701.7
  • See Richard Brewer's website, "Brewer Descendants of Johannes (Jan) Brouwer," "Derck's Line" for additional information regarding the descendants of Derck Brouwer. A link is provided in the footnote.8
  • Samuel Brouwer is a possible son of Derck Jansz Brouwer. Samuel is possibly the youngest son of Derck Brouwer, in which case Samuel may have named daughters for his mother Annatje/Hannah Dawes He is found at Raritan during the same time as supposed brothers Elias, Pieter and Jacob (Samuel and Jacob had children baptized at the Reformed Church there on the same day 19 Jan 1735). Placement as a son of Derck Brouwer would have to imply that Samuel was born 1702/03 at the latest. (This placement is unlikely).

Derck Brouwer1

b. between 1699 and 1703
  • Derck Brouwer was possibly born between 1699 and 1703.
  • He lived at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York.1
  • A "Deric Brevar" was on a 1738 muster roll for the Queens County militia. "Derick Brewer" was named as an adjoining property owner in 1742 in Hempstead (Records of the Towns of North and South Hempstead, Long Island, NY 8:294, 429).2,3
  • Although called "possibly" a son of Derck Brouwer and Hannah Dawes (NYG&B Record 138:259), it has to be said that he has the weakest claim to this parentage of any of Derck and Hannah's sons. Derck is only found in the records as an adult at Hempstead, Long Island, while the remainder of the family is in New Jersey. In the absence of a family of his own, and/or an association with other descendants of Jan in the form of wills or deeds, Derck's place in the descent from the family progenitor Jan Brouwer of Flatlands can not be determined at this time. He is placed here for now only because of the above mentioned reference.

  • He is possibly the Dirck Brouwer who enlisted in the Kings Co., New York militia, 15 Mar 1759, age 26; 5' 7 1/2", light complexion. The location is right, but the age is off.
  • One published account states: "He probably moved with his brother and was the Derick/Richard Brower who married Annatie/Hannah and was first of record in Hempstead in 1760 (baptism of a child)."1
  • William A.D. Eardeley: "He lived in South Hempstead, Long Island, New York: at Lynnbrook, not far from the Old Sand Hole Cemetery: he may have lived 1760 to 1762 in Success, now Manhasset, New York, but this is doubted."3

  • Richard Brouwer and Dirck Brouwer may be one and the same.

Dirck Brouwer1

b. 15 August 1732
  • Dirck Brouwer was baptized on 15 August 1732 at Reformed Dutch Church, Harlingen (Montgomery Twp.), Somerset Co., New Jersey; sponsors Cornelis Middag and Eyke Traphargen.2
  • The identity of his wife (assuming he had one) is unknown. That he is the father of possible brothers, David Brewer and Elias Brewer of Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania, has not been proved. Descendants are tentative.
  • Also known as Derick Brewer.2
  • Also known as Derrick Brewer.3
  • Also known as Richard Brewer.
  • He is possibly the Dirck Brouwer who enlisted in the King Co., New York militia, 15 Mar 1759, age 26; 5' 7 1/2", light complexion. The age is about right, but the location raises doubts.4
  • Dirck Brouwer and Dirck Brouwer were both born in New Jersey within a three year period, and some records found pertaining to a Dirck Brouwer of this period could apply to either one. Caution is advised.
  • Derrick Brewer is identified by name by Jacob Jennings Warner Brewer in an 1899 interview. Derrick would be Jacob's great-grandfather, and as it is apparent from the documnets he left, Jacob was very much interested in his ancestry and it is not beyond reason to expect that he therefore knew, at least the name of, his great-grandfather. Derrick's approximate year of birth (1730 to 1735) was then calculated by working backwards from his great-grandson who was born in 1815. In addition, DNA testing of a descendant of Jacob Jennings Warner Brewer, has demonstrated that his ancestors are descended from the progenitor, Jan Brouwer of Flatlands. Presently it is concluded that Dirck Brouwer, baptized 1732, is probably the ancestor of the families shown as descendants here. Additional evidence is needed before this can be considered as certain.
  • Richard Brouwer and Dirck Brouwer each have descendants who have participated in the Brewer DNA Project (kits nos. 163954 and 157835). The two match on 37 of 37 markers, indicating a greater than 97% chance of having a common ancestor within eight generations.5,6
  • Dirck Brouwer and Richard Brouwer may be father and son. This based upon Y-DNA analysis of descendants, but no documented evidence has been found to support the possibility.

  • Elias Brouwer was baptized on 25 December 1740 at Readington, Hunterdon Co., New Jersey; (no sponsors recorded).2
  • He was born on 22 March 1741 at New York (as per the DAR Patriot Index, but obviously in error unless there were two sons named Elias born to his father).5

  • Elias Brouwer died on 5 April 1812 at New York.5
  • He was buried at Riverside Cemetery, Oneonta, Otsego Co., New York.7
  • Also known as Elias Brewer.8,4

  • He served in the New Jersey Militia in 1758 and was sent to Albany, New York to support Col. Peter Schuyler's Jersey Blues at Ft. Ticonderoga (during the Seven Years War, called the French & Indian War in North America).6
  • In 1772 Elias and his family moved to Little White Creek, Cambridge, (then Albany Co., later Washington Co.), New York.6
  • Served as a private during the Revolutionary War, in the Cambridge, New York militia.5,6
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at Cambridge, Albany Co., New York, as Elias Brewer with a household of 3 males over the age of 16, 2 males under 16, and 4 females. No other Brewers were in Cambridge in 1790.11
  • In 1792, Elias moved the family to Otsego Co., New York (to what would become Oneonta), on the south side of the Susquehanna River.6,12
  • Elias Brewer, town of Cambridge, Washington County, NY, farmer, on February 7, 1792, purchased from Tunis F. Vanvechten and Abraham Vanvechten of the City of Albany, Albany County, NY, Esquires, land on the southerly side of the Susquehannah River, lot #5, in the tract granted to Alexander Wallace and others, 216 acres. Witnesses D. Paris and Garret G. Vischer. Recorded October 17, 1799. Page 128-129.13
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at Franklin, Delaware Co., New York, with a household of 1 male under 10, 1 male 10-15, 1 male over 45, 1 female over 45. He is enumerated next to David Brewer. Francis Brewer is also found in Franklin.14
  • On 6 May 1800 Elias Brouwer conveyed to David Brewer land on the Susquehannah River, lot 5, in a tract granted to Alexander Wallace, bordering the northern bounds of Franklin township, 80 acres. Witnesses Daniel Fuller and John Hartwell. Recorded May 28, 1800. Pages 145-146. (David Brewer of Kortright, yeoman; Elias Brewer of Kortright, gentleman).13
  • His will was dated on 22 December 1809 calls himself Elias Brewer of Kortright, Delaware County, New York, yeoman, being weak in body but of sound and perfect memory. To wife Phebe all the goods or household furniture that is in the west room of my new house together with a copper kettle and one brown white face cow...use of the west room of the house. Two sons Aron and Peter all the farm on the north side of the road supposed to contain on or about forty acres together with the buildings thereon and the cornhouse and my part of the cidar mill standing on the southside of the road...enough timber for firewood and fence. My other sons Francis and David all that part of the farm lying and being on the south side of the road supposed to contain on or about ninety six acres of land with the exception of said cornhouse, cidar mill, firewood and timber for fence. I give and bequeath to my son John Brower onehundred and sixty pounds equal to four hundred dollars and to my son Elias Brower, Junr. one hundred and fifty pounds equal to three hundred seventy five dollars United States currency which two sons must be paid by my other two sons Francis and david in two years after my decease. To my daughter Mary, seventy five dollars. To my daughter Anna, one hundred and twenty five dollars. To my daughter Jany, one hundred and twenty five dollars. To my daughter Phebe, one hundred and twenty five dollars, to be paid by my sons Aron and Peter. Appoints as executors his wife and son David. Signed Elias Brewer. Witnessed by James Herzett, Amasa Harrington, James McDonald.15,16
  • Elias Brouwer appeared on the census in 1810 at Kortright, Delaware Co., New York, with a household of 2 males 16-25, 1 male over 45, 1 female 16-25, 1 female over 45. Elias Brewer, Aaron Brewer and David Brewer are enumerated in succession.17
  • Research based upon DNA testing conducted by the Brewer DNA Project, affiliated with FamilyTreeDNA and using DNA sample taken from known, documented descendants of Elias Brewer, have confirmed that Elias is a descendant of Johannes/Jan Brouwer, and that he is not a descendant of Adam Brouwer as has sometimes been claimed.
  • Direct descendants of Elias Brouwer are represented by kits no. 65025, no.46313, and no.44994, found at he Brewer DNA Project. See http://web.mac.com/brewpe/iWeb/JanBrouwerDNA/Pedigrees.html and http://www.familytreedna.com/public/BrewerDNA/.
  • A short description of the changes in the political boundaries of the towns and counties in which Elias and his sons lived is helpful. In 1778 Harpersfield (then in Montgomery Co.) extended all the way down the Susquehanna River to the Pennsylvania line. The town of Kortright was formed from Harpersfield in 1793. It extended to the Susquehanna but was bounded on the south by the town of Franklin, and after 1800 by the new town of Meredith. In 1797 Delaware County was formed from parts of Ulster and Montgomery Counties. In 1817 the town of Davenport was created from the western portion of Kortright and a southernmost section of Maryland adjoining the Charlotte (Johnson) Patent. In 1817 Davenport extended to the Susquehanna and down to Franklin. After 1822 the northern section became part of Otsego County (itself created in 1791). For more details see "Davenport's Population" by Alan M. Strout for the Davenport Historical Society, online (see footnote for link). Also see the Wikipedia article on Otsego County.18

Elias Brouwer1,2,3

b. 1698/99, d. after 1744
  • Elias Brouwer was probably born in 1698/99 at Queens Co., Long Island, New York, possibly soon after the 1698 census was taken.
