Jacob Brouwer

b. July 1762, d. 1784
  • Jacob Brouwer was possibly born in July 1762 (this date is unconfirmed).1
  • He married Agnes Allen at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, on 12 March 1782 "Zyn van ons in den Huwelyken Staat bevestigd, Jacob Brouwer en Agness Allen, beide van Nieuwyork."2
  • Jacob Brouwer died in 1784 at possibly New Brunswick, Canada.1
  • Jacob Brouwer is a possible son of Adolf Brouwer. Jacob's widow, Agnes, does appear in New Brunswick after the Revolution, but there is little record of Jacob. It is possible that Jacob may have been named for Jacob Verdon, who would be his paternal grandmother's father. At this time there is not enough evidence to confirm a father - son relationship between these two.

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 died after 17 November 1702 at probably Flatlands, Kings Co., Long Island, New York; when he confirmed deeds of maintenance with his son Peter written in April 1700.
  • Also known as Johannes Brouwer.

  • 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.
  • He came to New Netherland circa 1657 (in this country 30 years in Sep 1687).7
  • He appeared on the assessment list of at New Amersfoort (Flatlands), Kings Co., New York, in September 1676 at £65, with 1 poll, 2 horses, 4 cows, 3 hogs.8

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. From the 12 other correspondents on the lines of descent from Thomas Benjamin Hill and Jane Brower, they had only indicated continuing descendants through their children Eleanor and Nazareth.".

  5. [S1473] Paul Brewer, "E-mail correspondence from Paul Brewer," e-mail message from Brewer, Paul to Chris Chester, April 3, 2007: "According to the Hill family records:
    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
    "The Trinity Church Story", as the dates, etc, are obviously in error.
    However, I believe that the information stated above is probably accurate.". Hereinafter cited as "Paul Brewer e-mail."
