John Brouwer

b. circa 1772, d. October 1863
  • John Brouwer was born circa 1772 at New York.2
  • He married Elizabeth Yerxa, daughter of John Yerxa and Catherine Gerow, circa 1793.3,4
  • John Brouwer died in October 1863 at Upper Keswick, York Co., New Brunswick, Canada.2
  • Also known as John Brewer.2,1
  • Also known as Johannis Brewer.3
  • He appeared on the census in 1851 at Douglas, York Co., New Brunswick, Canada, as John Brewer, age given as 77, with wife Elizabeth and son Cornelius.5
  • In A Dutch English Odessy (1997) Floyd I. Brewer bases his case that the John Brewer, b. 4 Aug 1774 to Jacob Brewer and Abigail Yerks was the same John Brewer who went to Canada in the late 1700's on (1) he married a member of the Jurckse family, both families were common in Greenburgh throughout the 1700s and there were other marriages between the two families, and (2) John Brewer's age in 1851 on the Canadian census places his birth date as 1774 in the United States, about the same time that Jacob and Abigail (Yerks) Brouwer had a son named John baptized at Sleepy Hollow, New York. Since the publication of his book, other researchers, among them William Bogardus, had convinced Floyd Brewer that this parentage for John is in error. Presently, it is my opinion that the most probable parentage for John is Adolphus Brouwer and Elizabeth Lassing, but complete conclusive evidence is still lacking, and it is possible that John is the eldest son of Adolf Brewer (shown as John's brother here) and his wife Mary Allen (perhaps named for Mary's father John Allen). This is one of those cases that may never be solved with certainty.6,1
  • John Brouwer and Adolf Brouwer are both represented by direct descendants who have participated in the Brewer DNA Project. John Brewer is represented by kit #75657, and Adolf Brewer is represented by kit #81173. The results show identical matches on twelve markers, which implies a very high probability that John and Adolf Brewer are brothers.7

  1. [S1374] William B. Bogardus, "Professional Genealogist," e-mail message from Bogardus, William B. (unknown address) to Chris Chester, Perry Brewer, Karen Sims and Lilly Martin, 22 Nov 2006, "The professional genealogist that Floyd Brewer first employed for determining his ancestry back to Adam BROUWER was Florence A. Christoph of Selkirk, NY. She is the one that convinced him of his descent from Matthys BROUWER, son of Adam - - and, I will admit, I first thought that she might be correct but before the book was published Floyd and I were convinced that she was wrong. Unfortunately, it had already gone to press. Even before he employed Florence, Floyd had been in contact with several others, including Paul Brewer of New Brunswick and John Brewer of New Zealand (not in N.B. but "down under") (now deceased - who visited me here in Wilmington). John had even been to England searching records there and we all had discussed the most probable descent from Nicholas and then his son Adolph, b. 1693, etc. There were many circumstantial bits of evidence but there were also incongruities that we could never actually come to an assurance that this suggested ancestry was correct. I had not been in direct contact with Paul at this time - - but Floyd kept me pretty well abreast of most of the data he was receiving. Paul is recognized in the book, as I am also, as "Genealogical Consultants". I have scores of summaries, bits of evidence, land extracts, old letters, and professional notes but in spite of it all, I was never able to put it all together without some doubt. I don't really have time to go through it all again but am still very interested in the suggested family connections that are periodically presented.
    After the book was published, Floyd then employed a second professional genealogist, Glenna Hill of Ocean Grove, NJ and I have some of her notes and data also. Although never finally accepted or published, her final conclusion was that John Brewer, b. ca. 1774, who married Elizabeth YERXA, ca. 1793, was the son of Adolph BROWER (1750- ) of Athens, NY, Burton and New Zealand, N.B., who married Mary ALLEN in Hudson, N.Y. prior to 1773; and this Adolph was the son of Adolph BROUWER (1725- ), of Hackensack, NJ, Wappingers Falls, NY and Athens, NY, who married Elizabeth LASSING in 1749; and this Adolph was the son of Adolph BROUWER (1693-1742), who married Jannetje VERDON; Adolph the son of Nicholas and Nicholas the son of Adam BROUWER BERCHOVEN.
    I think Glenna Hill was perhaps on the right track but I'm not absolutely convinced that she was correct. In any event. I really do believe that John BREWER, b. ca. 1774, was descended from Adam, Nicholas and Adolph, b. 1693". Hereinafter cited as "Wm. Bogardus, e-mail, 11-20-2006."

"John Brewer grew up in the town of Greenburgh (Hawthorne) Westchester Co., New York, then moved to New Zealand, New Brunswick, Canada where he was a farmer and raised fifteen children. He settled in the New York/New Jersey Volunteers Block in New Zealand, New Brunswick, near his relation Adolphus Brewer who went to New Brunswick with his wife and two children in 1783 with a large group of Loyalists. John Brewer bought land in New Zealand by 1803." These conclusions by Floyd Brewer are in fact incorrect. John's most probable parents lived in Dutchess Co., New York and then in Bergen Co., New Jersey, at least for a time, prior to retreating to New York City after the outbreak of the American Revolution. John did find his way to York Co., New Brunswick and the Adolf Brewer and Cornelius Brewer also found there are most likely his brothers.

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.

Jurrie Brouwer

b. circa 1745, d. before February 1797
  • Jurrie Brouwer was born circa 1745 if he is a son of Abraham Brouwer and Barbara Stellingwerf (probably earlier if he is not).
  • He married Maria Tideman before 1764.1
  • Jurrie Brouwer died before February 1797 ; if he is a son of Abraham Brouwer, who wrote is will in Feb 1797, which does not name a son.
  • Also known as Jeremiah.
  • Possible son of Abraham Brouwer. He is placed here in light of the fact that Abraham Brouwer and his wife Maria Losee stood as sponsors for Jurrie's only known child, named Abraham (1764). Jurrie, or Jeremiah, is not named in Abraham Brouwer's will, however, the fact that no other children have been identified as his may indicate that he died early on.

Lena Brouwer

b. 11 April 1772, d. between 1847 and 1848
  • Lena Brouwer was born on 11 April 1772 at Dutchess Co., New York.1
  • She married Joshua Manning, son of John Manning and Martha, at Pleasant Valley, Dutchess Co., New York, on 22 April 1789.2,3
  • Lena Brouwer died between 1847 and 1848.1,4
  • Also known as Helena Brower.
  • Also known as Lany Brower.3
  • Lena's husband was born about 1769, and her first child was born in 1789. The 1790 census shows the family with only the one child. She is named in her father's will of Sep 1777, as fifth among his daughters which would place her birth at about 1772, and if so, she would have been married by seventeen.5
  • She was living on 15 April 1797; when she and her husband petitioned the New York Surrogate Court in Albany regarding the estate of her father Nicholas Brower.2
  • The 1810 Federal census records a Mrs. Manning in New York Ward 1, New York Co., New York with a family of 5 males under 10, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-25, 1 female 26-44. She is enumerated between Wm. Vandewater and Peter A. Schenck.6
  • She was a member of the at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, on 5 June 1817 "Helen Brower, wife of Joshua Manning, by certificate from Reformed Dutch Church at Poughkeepsie."7
  • , On 29 Oct 1831, in Ulster County, Josiah Drake was deposed before Reuben H. Hine, J.P. and Comm. of Deeds for Ulster County. Josiah states that he lives in the town of New Paltz and states that Hellenah Manning is the daughter of Nicholas Brower and Sarah Drake, "all of which the said Josiah Drake knows of his own personal knowledge being personally acquainted with them." Josiah further states that Nicholas Brower is the son of Adolphus Brower and Adolphus was the son of Jacob Brower and Annette Bogardus, the wife of Jacob Brower. Josiah states that one other daughter of Annatie Bogardus and Jacob Brower the said Josiah believes was named Magdalena Brower and the said Magdalena was the grandmother of Josiah Drake and the great grandmother of the above named Hellenah Manning and the above named Sarah Drake is the daughter of William Drake and William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower who is the daughter of Jacob Brower and Annatie Bogardus.
    (This deposition creates more questions then it answers. Josiah does not state who he believes Magdalena Brower was married to. Early, accounts of the Brower-Drake families have claimed that Magdalena was the wife of John Drake, while 20th century genealogical research has concluded that John Drake's wife was Martha Oldfield]. Josiah does not state who his parents are, but states that he is a grandson of Magdalena Brower [Josiah cannot be John Drake's son, Joseph, as he died in 1808]. Could Josiah be implying that Magdalena was married to a brother of John Drake, possibly Josiah, b. 1683? Might John Drake have been married twice, first to Magdalena Brouwer and second to Martha Oldfield?8
  • Letter from Jeremiah Brouwer to Lena Brouwer: In this letter dated 2 April 1832, Jeremiah writes from Hopewell, New York (Chapinville Post Office) to Helenah Manning, 216 Division Street, City of New York. He signs the letter as, "your brother Jeremiah Brower." The letter concerns mistakes made in a previous letter Jeremiah wrote concerning their pedigree. He asks Helenah whether "Grandfather Adolphus was the oldest son of Great Grandfather Jacob Brower who married Anneke, the daughter of William Bogardus." Jeremiah is of the belief that "Great Grandfather Jacob" had eight children. (The inquiry is being made in an effort to demonstrate a right of nheritence to the "Jans and Bogardus" property).9
  • Lena Brouwer and Nicholas Birdsall Brower asked the Chancery Court of Dutchess County on 17 April 1833, to take depositions from William Lane and Josiah Drake. Their reasons stated were that they expect to be made a party (with other devices and heirs of Annetie Jans widow of Domine Everardus Bogardus, deceased) in a suit in some Court, concerning the title to certain lands in the City of New York.
    The deposition of William Lane was taken at his house in the town of New Paltz, Ulster County on 23 May 1833. In his deposition William Lane states that he is 75 years of age, and that his mother, Elizabeth Drake, was the daughter of William Drake, and that William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower and John Drake to whom the said Magdalena Brower had been married. The deponent further states that the said Magdalena was the sister of Adolphus Brouwer, and that the said Magdalena and Adolphus were the children of Jacob Brouwer and Annetie his wife, formerly Annetie Bogardus. That the said Magdalena was the mother of Josiah Drake and great-grandmother of Helena Manning, the said Helenor Manning being a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer who was the son of Adolphus who was the son of Jacob Brouwer.
    The deponent then claims that the said Magdalena and her husband lived on a farm in New York called the Domine's Hook containing upwards of 130 acres, and that Magdalena claimed the land as hers. The deponent understood and believes that the house was burnt down during the Revolutionary War while Magdalena lived there. The deponent heard that the Church of England claimed the property and that he understood that there had been lawsuits regarding the property but did not know the particulars.
    (This account of William Lane's, specifically with regard th the claim that Magdalena Brower and John Drake were the parents of William Drake and Josiah Drake, is not consistant with other evidence, particularly with the claim that John Drake was the father of William and Josiah. What is of concern is that William Lane, having been born in 1758, would have had the opportunity to personally know his claimed great-grandfather, John Drake, who was living as late as 1779.).10
  • On 20 May 1839, Helena stated that she lived in New York City.11
  • Lena Brouwer appeared on the census in 1840 at Ward 14, New York City, New York Co., New York.12
  • On 10 Aug 1846, Helenah Manning wrote from Poughkeepsie, New York, inquiring for the records of the courts for the year 1798 to be examined to see if "there was not a suit pending between Nicholas N. Brower and his wife for a separate maintenance."13

Mary Dutcher died in 1763 and on 31 March 1765, Nicholas married Sarah Drake, daughter of William Drake. By her he hd six children, William, Jermiah, Jacob, Sarah who married James Tompkins, Lany who married Joshua Manning and Cornelia who married James Tarrant. Lany Manning had six children: James, Sarah married Golden deceased, left one son, John M. Golden; Martha, married Robert Pitcairn; Helenah, married John Overbaugh, John, deceased, left one child named Caroline; Cornelia, never maried. "Therefore, Martha Pitcairn's claim would be 1/6 of 1/6 of 1/10 of 1/8 of the 2 parcels or pieces of land aforesaid. The rest of Lany Mannings children are still living".

Lena Brouwer1

b. 11 February 1739, d. 4 June 1739
  • Lena Brouwer was baptized on 11 February 1739 at Dutch Reformed Church, Schraalenburgh, Bergen Co., New Jersey; sponsors Niclaes Brouwer and Jannetje Furman (sic, read Truman), sister.2
  • She is said to have died on 4 June 1739 "bitten by a snake." The story reports that she was bitten three times by a rattlesnake and died soon thereafter.3
  • Also known as Lea Brouwer Note; Lea and Lena are NOT twins, they are one and the same person. The Schraalenburgh baptism record does NOT record twins.4
  • According to William J. Hoffman, Lena (Lea) did not marry James Stegg, as has been suggested by some early accounts of this family.
  • William J. Hoffman assigns the death of a daughter of Adolphus Brouwer to Lena (Lea). The death, by rattle-snake bite, occurred in early June and if this daughter was in fact Lena, she would have been only four months old. The report of the death, as published in The Boston Weekly Post-Boy, June 11, 1739, however, reads as follows: "New York, June 4. Last Week a young Woman, the daughter of Adolph Brower, of Hackensack was bit in three different places by a Rattle-Snake, as she was gathering Straw berries; the injected venom operated so speedy that she died in a few Hours."
    This account does not describe a four month old infant. An infant would not have been called a "young Woman," and a four month old would certainly have not been out picking strawberries. A footnote to this a reprint of this article as found in Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey; Extracts from American Newspapers, relating to New Jersey, 1704-1775, Vol. 2, pages 571-572, adds, "Doubtless Femmetje, daughter of Adolf Brouwer and Jannestie Verdon, baptized in the Hackensack church 1 December 1723."
    The problem here of course is that Femmetje is then claimed to be the wife of John Gesner and if this is correct she could not have died in 1739.5

The other three sheets were incorrect accounts of the families of Adam Brouwer, his son Pieter Brouwer, and Johannes Brouwer and Antje Mandeville. Cites "Adam Brouwer Genealogy," comp. by William A.D. Eardley, Sep 1923, Brooklyn, NY. Note: This genealogy in itself is flawed.

Copy of chart titled, "Genealogy-Family of Adam Brouwer (Brower) is found in the William B. Bogardus Collection, Box 5, BB-353 (GEP). The chart shows a line of descent from son, Pieter Adamse Brouwer and his wife, Pieternella Uldricks; their son Abraham Pieterse Brouwer and his wife Lea De Maree; their son Daniel Brouwer and his wife Maria Koning; their son Johannes Brouwer and his wife Tryntje Jersey; and their children Antje, Abraham, Peter and David. Note that the placement of Johannes as a son of Daniel Brouwer and Maria Koning is incorrect. That couples' son Johannes married three times and lived in Kentucky. The Johannes who married Tryntje Jersey is a son of Abraham Brouwer and Antje Nix. Hereinafter cited as DAR (New Jersey), New Jersey Collected Miscellaneous Genealogical Data.
