Jan Brouwer1,2,3,4,5

b. circa 1628, d. after 17 November 1702
  • Jan Brouwer was probably born circa 1628 at Amsterdam, Noord Holland, Netherlands.
  • He married Jannetje Jans at probably Netherlands circa 1653.

  • Jan Brouwer is one of three 17th century Brouwer family progenitors found in New Netherland/New York. He emigrated to New Amsterdam in 1657. He was a blacksmith and lived at Flatlands, Long Island, New York. Sons Johannes and Hendrick appeared to have settled at Hempstead in Queens County, while son Pieter remained at Flatlands. Son, Derek, was among the Dutch inhabitants at Flushing, Queens Co., in 1698. Third generation descendants are also found in Monmouth, Somerset and Hunterdon Counties, New Jersey, apparently moving there with the migration of Kings County residents to the Raritan Valley area of New Jersey beginning in the first decade of the 1700's. In the past, the close proximity of Jan's family with that of Adam Brouwer's has caused many to confuse and interconnect the two. DNA testing of descendants conducted through the Brewer DNA Project http://www.familytreedna.com/public/BrewerDNA/ and reported in "DNA: Adam Brouwer Berckhoven, Elias Brouwer, and John Brewer" (NYGBR 138 [Oct.2007]:245-49) has demonstrated that any possible common ancestor between the two would have lived tens of thousands of years ago.

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.

    Thomas Benjamin Hill married a Jane Brouwer Their family included children:
    Nazareth, Thomas, Eleanor and Ann.
    Nazareth Brouwer Hill, the son of Benjamin (Thomas) Hill was born in New
    York State, Dec 5, 1752. He grew up in New York State and learned a weaver's
    trade. Afterwards he settled on one hundred acres of land in New Haven,
    Connecticut. In 1778 he married, in Trinity Church, New York, Catherine
    Edwards, the daughter of Captain Robert Edwards.
    During the American Revolution Nazareth Hill was a scout for the British
    Army. He returned to New Haven, Conn, after the war, leased his land to his
    brother, and then came to Canada. He is listed with the loyalists at the Bay
    of Quinte (1790) and then settled in Marysburg, Prince Edward Co., Ontario.
    The Hill family like many other families, around 1900, were trying to show
    that they were descended from Jacob Brower and Annetta Bogardus. I have
    omitted information about Jane's ancestry, that is included in the document

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.
