Albany Militia.16,17

  2. [S1519] William Bogardus, "E-mail correspondence from William Bogardus," e-mail message from Bogardus, William to Chris Chester and et al, Received May 19, 2008. "I've been reviewing some past correspondence regarding a possible spouse and descendancy from Petrus Brouwer, bp. New York Dutch Church, 12 Oct 1740, son of Pieter Brouwer and his 1st wife, Elizabeth Quackenbush; and Pieter, son of Jacobus Brouwer and Anna Bogardus. In my 1996 "Dear Cousin" Book on Chart 7D, I had indicated "no further record" for Petrus. A correspondent of mine, who had apparently been in contact with Lilly in late 2005 or early 2006 (Sharon Craig) had indicated that Petrus (Peter) had died in Tate Twp., Clermont Co., OH in 1842 and that he (as Peter Brewer) had married Margaret Melow 23 Mar 1780, in Gloucester Co., NJ. She was apparently born in 1761 in Somerset Co., NY and died in 1838 in Tate Twp. also. Clermont County, OH is not far from Wilmington so I will try to investigate this myself when time permits.
    I'm aware of Lilly's "rootsweb" inquiry of 15 Apr 2005, pertaining to the NJ tax records of 1790-1815 wherein Peter was apparently included; and a later 10 Mar 2006 "rootsweb" excellent report by Lilly pertaining to the "Brower Families in Missouri" wherein the ancestry of Peter, with his wife Margaret Melow, is tentatively concluded as being a descendant of Jacobus Brouwer as indicated above.
    My present questions are: do you both now accept that it was Petrus (Peter), bp. 12 Oct 1740, the son of Jacobus Brouwer and Anna Bogardus, who married Margaret Melow; and do you agree that Peter and Margaret had: (1) Peter, b. 7 Apr 1788, Egg Harbor, Gloucester Co., NJ, d. 11 May 1869, Dabney, Ripley Co., IN, who married Anna Perrine, 1 Jun 1817 in Clermont Co., OH. She was apparently born 3 Dec 1787 in Cranbury, Middlesex Co., NJ and died 18 Sep 1872 in Ripley Co., IN; and (2) Adam, b. 13 Apr 1802, Gloucester Co., NJ, d. 14 Nov 1892, Hamilton Co., IN, who married Janet MacMurchy, 12 Oct 1824 in Brown Co., OH - - and I have more information about her. In the 1850 census for Otter Creek Township, Ripley Co., IN, I believe I found Peter (as Peter Brown), age 62, b. NJ, living with his son Andrew and family; and in the 1860 census for the same place, as Peter Brown, age 72, b. NJ, living with his son James D. and family; and in the 1870 census for Center Township, I found Anna Browers, age 83, b. NJ, living with Andrew and his family. Another child of Peter and Margaret was Margaret Melow Brower, b. 1818, Clermont Co., OH, d. 1888, married Edward Thomas Newberry - - with more information also; and I have children and descendants of Adam Brower and Janet MacMurchy
    I would welcome your comments.". Hereinafter cited as "Wm. Bogardus e-mail."

By that time they were living in Town of Ramapo, Rockland County, New York.
    Previous to 1850 they were tenants on property in the west part of present Waldwick and were living there when the 1850 census was taken. They subsequently moved to the Jersey City area of Hudson County where on 5 April 1852, Peter bought from Jacob M. Merseles, lot 35 on Hudson Street. They soon after built a house on this property, the cost of which was financed by a mortgage made 30 May 1853 to the Bergen Reformed Church for $725.
    On 3 Oct 1857, Peter took title to the rear 50 by 90 feet with house, of adjoining lot 36 from son-inlaw John Litchholt, for $900 on which there was a mortgage for $400.

  • He married Elsje Tjerk.1
  • Philip Hendickszen Brouwer died in 1664 at Schenectady, New York.1
  • Also known as Philip Hendrickszen.1
  • Early on, Jonathan Pearson raised the possibility that Willem Brouwer may be a brother of Philip Hendrickse Brouwer, "Willem (Hendrickse?), perhaps the brother of Philip Hendrickse, brewer, who was in Beverwyck as early as 1655, where he owned a house, lot and brewery, and became one of the original proprietors of Schenectady in 1664."1
  • He was in Beverwyck as early as 1655, where he owned a house, lot and brewery. He was one of the original proprietors of Schenectady in 1664. The following year he accidently shot Claas Cornelise Swits. It is not known that he left any children. His village lot, 200 sq. ft. was on the north corner of Church and State streets, and was sold to Cornelis Van Ness, after his death in 1664, who then conveyed it to his stepson Johannes Dirkse Van Eps.1

Pieter Adamsz Brouwer1,2

b. 23 September 1646
  • Pieter Adamsz Brouwer was baptized on 23 September 1646 at Reformed Dutch Church, New Amsterdam; sponsors Mr. Paulus van der Beek, Willem Bredenbent, Aeltje Braconye, Mary du Trieux.3
  • He married Petronella Uldrickse Kleyn, daughter of Uldrick Kleyn and Baefje Pieters, before 1673.4
  • Patronymic: Pieter Adamsz.5
  • A deed of 1701 calls Pieter the eldest child of Adam Brouwer. He was apparently at Schenectady immediately after his marriage to Petronella Kleyn, and is last found in a record at East Jersey in 1701. The date and place of his death is not known, and it is possible that he went to the Albany, New York area later in life. He named his eldest son (Adam Brouwer's first grandson) Uldrick (for his father-in-law) and this may have been a sore point for Adam as late as 1692, when he disinherited Pieter in his will. Pieter's older children are found in Bergen Co., New Jersey, and his youngest three children in the Albany, New York area.
  • Pieter Adamsz Brouwer and Petronella Uldrickse Kleyn were members of at Reformed Protestant Dutch Church, Flatbush, Kings Co., Long Island, New York, in 1679 living at Gowanus. Pieter is listed as "Pieter Adamsz and wife", and is recorded with his father, Adam Brouwer, "under censure."5
  • On 1 Sep 1679, Peter Brouwer was "bound over to answer at the Gravesend sessions for an assault on Gerrit Croesen." As Gerrit died shortly thereafter, the question seems open as to whether or not his death was the result of the assault.6,7
  • Pieter Adamsz Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Willemyntje Matthyse Brouwer , daughter of Matthys Adamsz Brouwer and Marietje Pieterse Wyckoff, on 26 February 1682 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (sponsors Pieter Brouwer, Eegtje (Agatha) Joris. Also recorded at Flatbush.).8,9
  • Pieter Adamsz Brouwer took the Oath of Allegiance in September 1687 at Brooklyn, Kings Co., New York, as "Pieter brouwer, native."10
  • "Pieter Brouwer is among the soldiers from King's County sent in 1690 to Albany."11
  • Peter is named in his father's will dated 22 Jan 1691. He is given three shillings and, for "his disobedience" is cut off from an equal share of his father's property, with his share to pass on to his children.12
  • On 10 Oct 1700, Peter Brower of East New Jersey deeds Abram and Nicholas Brower of Brooklyn, "Whereas there is a corn mill in Brooklyn called Gowanus Mill bounded by land of Jacob Hanson, Hendrick Vechte, Volkert Briez, formerly in the tenure of Adam Brower, deceased, true owner as by a conveyance from Tunis Nyssen, deceased, and heirs of John Evertse Bout, deceased, etc." The indenture states that Peter Brower is the eldest son of Adam Brower, deceased. Signs by his mark. Witnessed by William Laurence, Anthony Karr, both sign by mark. Acknowledged 21 Oct 1700 before Col. Gerardus Beeckman, Justice of the Peace.13,14
  • Pieter is the eldest child of Adam Brouwer and Magdalena Verdon, as stated in the deed of October 1700. His wife lived in Schenectady, and after their marriage, the couple apparently remained there through the births of their two eldest children. Pieter then relocated the family to Brooklyn, possibly lived in New Haerlem for a short period, then settled in East Jersey, where he is said to be from in October 1700. The marriage records of a few of his children state that they were living in Newark. However, a check of some land records there, of that time, did not find any Browers or Brewers (Newark was founded and settled by "English" families, many coming from the New England Colonies. While his six oldest children all married in the Dutch Church at Hackensack, New Jersey, and raised families in that area, the next three youngest children were all married at Albany, New York, and remained in that area. No record of Peter is yet to be found post October 1700, when he would have been 54 years old. As the three youngest children are later found in the Albany area, it is possible that Peter moved once again, this time to that area. It could also be reasoned that Peter died shortly after October 1700, and his widow, along with her three youngest children, returned to the Albany area, a place where she grew up and where her extended family remained. A Peter Brouwer did stand as sponsor at a baptism in March 1723 at the Reformed Dutch Church at Albany (see below).
  • A Petrus Brouwer (with Hendr. Oothout) were sponsors on 3 March 1723 at the baptism of Hendrik Bovy, son of Claes Bovy and Cornelia Brouwer. It is not known for certain who this Peter Brouwer is. The child who was baptized would be a grandson of this Peter Brouwer, and if alive in 1723, he would be 77 years old. The next closest relation to the mother, Cornelia Brouwer, would be her nephew, Peter Brouwer, b.1701, son of her brother Abraham Brouwer. This Peter Brouwer was alive in 1723, had married Dina de Groot, and was sponsor at a number of baptisms in Hackensack, although no other baptisms in Albany.15
  • T.G. Bergen, in 1878 (NYG&BR 9:127) incorrectly attributes three wives to Pieter Brouwer, stating that he married 2nd, Geertruyd Jans (she was witness at the baptism of Pieter's son Jacob in 1694), and 3rd, Annetie Jansen. Neither of the two women were wives of this Pieter Brouwer. Totten in 1936 (NYG&BR 67:222) disproves the 2nd and 3rd marriages.
  • Henry Brewer is a possible descendant of Pieter Adamsz Brouwer Through Y-DNA testing, a descendant of Henry Brewer matches on 36 of 37 markers, three different descendants of Pieter Brouwer.

The genealogy "tentatively" assigns a son named Pieter to his family. However, the two records cited, a 1731 church membership of Antje Berge and the 1759 administration of Peter Brewer of Shrewsbury, cannot belong to the same man. The 1731 membership, as described, is in error. The actual record, found in GMNJ 22:4, states that Antje Berge was the widow of Peter Brower. As he died prior to 1731, this Peter Brower cannot be the Peter Brewer whose estate was administered in 1759. No direct, or circumstantial evidence, is provided to account for a son named Pieter. The genealogy does not address the parentage or possible parentage of Annatje Jans. Hereinafter cited as "Jan Brouwer."

b. 9 December 1716, d. circa 1750
  • Rachel Brouwer was baptized on 9 December 1716 at Dutch Reformed Church, Hackensack, Bergen Co., New Jersey; sponsors Benjamin DeMaree, Elisabeth DeGroot, his wife.2
  • She married Hendrick Banta, son of Hendrick Hendricksz Banta and Geertry Terhuyne, at Dutch Reformed Church, Schraalenburgh, Bergen Co., New Jersey, on 12 August 1738.3
  • Rachel Brouwer possibly died circa 1750 at Bergen Co., New Jersey.
  • Rachel Brower is named in her father's will dated 29 Mar 1725.4
  • She witnessed the baptism of Rachel Brouwer , daughter of Jacob Brouwer and Jannetje Hartje, on 19 February 1738 at Dutch Reformed Church, Hackensack, Bergen Co., New Jersey, (sponsors Daniel Brouwer and Rachel Brouwer).5
  • Rachel Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Lea Brouwer , daughter of Daniel Brouwer and Marietje Koning, on 15 July 1744 at Dutch Reformed Church, Schraalenburgh, Bergen Co., New Jersey, (sponsors Hendrik Banta and Rachel his wife).6

  • Her death in ca.1750 is pressumed based on the fact that her husband is married to Antje Demarest in Jan 1751. The marriage record, however, is not specific in calling Hendrick Banta a widower. It is also unclear as to which other Rachel Brouwer may have stood as sponsor in April 1756 for Rachel Brouwer daughter of David Brouwer and Jannetje Hartje.
