  • Samuel Brouwer was baptized on 25 August 1706 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York; sponsors Jacob Swaan, Susanna Bourdet.2
  • Samuel Brouwer was probably the Samuel Brouwer who married Maregrita before 1732 (first known child baptized in 1732).
  • Also known as Samuel Brewer.3
  • Samuel Brouwer witnessed the will of Jan Brouwer on 29 October 1732; proved 30 Nov 1732 (inventory taken 13 Nov 1732). Called John Bruer of Somerset Co., New Jersey, farmer. Names children: John, eldest; Dirck, second; Antye, and "last and youngest son." Executors: Johanes Colyer of Long Island, Kings Co., and Tunis Post and Hendrick Bris, both of Somerset Co. Witnesses: William Post, Samuel Bruer, Cornelius Willemse.4
  • Samuel Brouwer was a freeholder at Western Precinct, Somerset Co., New Jersey, in 1753.5,6
  • He witnessed the will of John Smock on 1 March 1760; John Smock of the Eastern Precinct of Somerset Co. Names wife Leah. Children: Tice, John, Charles, Rynier, Jacob, Abraham, Lena (wife of Powel Powelson), Elizabeth, Maria, Leah, Ghartie, Catherine and Jane. Real and personal estate. Executors: his wife, son Tice and Jacob van Tine. Wit.: Abraham van Buren, W. Thomson and Samuel Brewer. Proved 29 Apr 1760. Lib. G, page 179.3

  • Samuel Brouwer is a possible son of Derck Jansz Brouwer.

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.

Sara Brouwer1

b. before 1743, d. after 1794
  • Sara Brower is named in the will of her father, Jeury Brower, dated 18 Sep 1754, to receive £30 on her marriage day, and £70 six years after his decease.
  • She witnessed the baptism of Abraham Bennet , son of Cornelius Bennet and Maria Brouwer, on 10 December 1766 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors de Vader, Sara Brouwer, j.d.).5
  • Hoffman, in Brouwer Beginnings, states that Sara married William Elsworth, Jr. (bp.1733). This is contradicted by both The Elsworth Family of New York City and the Stoutenburgh Genealogy which states that William Elsworth, Jr. married Hendricka Stoutenburgh. An RDC New York record of the Elsworth-Stoutenburgh marriage gives a date of 10 Oct 1756 (banns 5 Oct 1756). No records of a marriage for Sara and this William Elsworth has been found. It is likely that Hoffman was in error on this point.6

Abijah was the son of Daniel Whitney and Thankful Burt.

    and Anne Elizabeth Pinder, for her 2d husband on 22 Jun 1763 at Christ

  • Also known as Sally Brouwer.2
  • Sara Brouwer is mentioned in a letter from Charles Vail to Pitt Carl Esq. on 16 January 1852 Writing from Riverhead (Suffolk Co., Long Island), Charles Vail is seeking the aid of Pitt Carl, Esq. of New York City in determining whether or not his wife (whose mother was a Brower) is entitled to cliams upon the Trinity Church property. Charles Vail writes, "My wife's grandfather lived on the west end of Long Island but lost his property and moved to the state of New Jersey but had his mill at Goanses burnt and other property destroyed by the British in the Revolutionary War. And when I knew the old man he lived in Paterson, New Jersey and was a very aged man and that was in 1815. I think his name was Abraham and he had four sons--Jerry, Abraham, Christopher and William. Christopher and William I knew. He also had 3 daughters--Sally, Caty, and Rebecca, the mother of my wife. My wife's mother is dead and so is all her brothers and sisters." Charles Vail also mentions speaking with "Catherin Cannon sister," who lives in Riverhead, whose mother was also a Brower, but from a different family.3
