  • He married Elizabeth before 1721.3
  • Hendrick Brouwer is covered in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:30). Hoffman adds, "It would seem that this Hendrick Brouwer is the one who settled at the Raritan rather than Hendrick, son of Matthys as Bergen and "Our Home" (probably following the former) suggest. Hendrick of the Raritan named his eldest son Adam, and his eldest daughter Marietje, undoubtedly for his parents, the usual Dutch custom. He apparently had no son named Matthys."1
  • Henry Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.
  • Henry Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer. (Conjecture, based soley on the common name of Henry, and the fact that Hendrick Brouwer's children were born in Somerset Co., New Jersey, an area from which families were known to have migrated to western Pennsylvania, Virginia and further to Ohio and Kentucky).
  • Peter Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.
  • Samuel Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.

Hendrick Brouwer

b. circa 1702
  • Hendrick Brouwer was born circa 1702 (assuming at least age 25 in 1727, but possibly earlier, perhaps in the decade of 1690-1700).
  • He married Rachel Bon before 1727.1
  • Also known as Henry Brewis.2
  • Hendrick is possibly a son of Pieter Jansz Brouwer and Annatje Jans. The tentative placement is based soley on the place and time of the baptism of his daughter Sara. A Hendrick Brewer witnessed the will of Johannes Luyster (3 Aug 1766), who was a son of Lucretia Brouwer and Johannes Luyster. However, the witnessing of a will does not necessarily indicate a family relationship (wills are often witnessed by unrelated individuals), and the Hendrick who witnessed the will of Johannes Luyster may be the Hendrick Brewer/Brower (b. 1735), son of Johannes Brouwer and Helena Van Cleef. As of now Hendrick does not have an obvious fit within the families descended from Adam Brouwer. Additional evidence needed before a placement can be finalized.

Family: Rachel Bon b. bt 1700 - 1710

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.

  • Hoffman, in his manuscript notes, states that Hester Brouwer, daughter of Jacob Brouwer and Jannetje Van der Beek, baptized 28 Oct 1761, married Cornelius van Saan on 28 May 1791. Cornelius stated as being the son of Cornelius van Saan and Johanna Begon, bpt. 19 Sep 1759. Cites Nelson, History of Patterson. This, however, may not be correct. Hester is not named in her father's will of 1784, and a witness for the baptism of Polly, daughter of Cornelius Van Zaan and Hester Brouwer (1792) was Bregje Brouwer the wife of Gilliam Demorest (the other witness was Jan Brouwer). The Hester Brouwer who married Cornelius Van Zaan (Van Saan) is more likely a daughter of Jan Brouwer and Rachel Braakelen.
