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.19.

Sybrandt Jacobsz Brouwer1,2

b. 29 August 1683, d. 3 December 1727
  • Sybrandt Jacobsz Brouwer was said to be born on 29 August 1683 at Brooklyn, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.3
  • He married Sara Webber, daughter of Aernout Webber and Jannetie Cornelis, at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, on 12 May 1706 (banns 10 May 1706).4
  • Sybrandt Jacobsz Brouwer probably died on 3 December 1727 according to Hoffman (TAG 24:24) who states, "for on these dates the records show that a Sybrandt Brouwer died; one of these dates applies to this man (the father), the other to his son." Totten (NYG&BR 56 [1925])) assigns the earlier date to the father, and the later date to the son. Sybrandt was clearly dead by 15 May 1737 when is wife is called a widow at the baptism of their grand-daughter Sara Brouwer.2,5
  • He was probably buried on 5 December 1727 at Gowanus, Kings Co., New York.1,5
  • Another early source says he was born 6 May 1683 (R.W. Vosburgh, who questions the accuracy). The F.J. Hill manuscript on Anneke Jans says born 29 Aug 1683. Neither date can be confirmed by any church or other records, no baptism record has been found. Sybrandt was a bricklayer and became a freeman of New York 6 Aug 1723. He and his wife had eight children baptized in the Dutch Reformed Church of New York.
  • He witnessed the baptism of Aarnout Quackenbos , son of Benjamin Quackenbos and Claasje Webber, on 15 January 1707 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Sybrant Brouwer, Rachel Webber).6
  • In an indenture dated 30 Apr 1707, Sybrant Brower of Brooklyn, "eldest son and heyre to Jacob Brower late of said township deceased," conveyed to Abram Brower and Nicholas Brower, both of Brooklyn, for two hundred and twenty pounds, "his fourteenth part share" in the Gowanus property formerly occupied by Adam Brower. Sybrant Brower signed with his mark.7
  • Sybrandt Jacobsz Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Jacob Brouwer , son of Jacob Jacobsz Brouwer and Petronella de la Montagne, on 24 September 1710 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York, (witnesses Sybrandt Brouwer, Antje Brouwer).8
  • Sybrandt Jacobsz Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Reynier Quackenbos , son of Jacob Quackenbosch and Anna Jacobse Brouwer, on 29 March 1719 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Sybrandt Brouwer, Dievertje Woertendyk).9
  • Hoffman in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:24) adds a very long footnote to the sketch of Sybrant Brouwer. He states that the information found in Geneal. of the State of New Jersey, by Lee, regarding Sybrandt's son Jacob is entirely wrong, and that "similiar, and even worse, information is contained in the Newark Evening Journal, no.4925" regarding this same family. Hoffman states that the "very inaccurate Harlem Register by Toler..." is "...utterly unreliable" regarding its description of descendants of Sybrandt Brouwer.2

Tunis Brouwer

b. circa 1730
  • Tunis Brouwer was born circa 1730 at probably Westchester Co., New York.1
  • Also known as Tunas Brewer.
  • Also known as Teunis Brewer.2,3
  • No baptism record has been found for Tunis (Teunis) Brouwer. He has been identified as a son of Hendrick Brouwer and Jannetje Crancheyt by Naomi C. Brewer (1981) and this identification is very likely. Tunis would have been named for his maternal grandfather, Teunis Crancheyt.
  • He was found on the tax list at Southern Precinct, Dutchess Co., New York, from June 1754 to 1765.4
  • He served during at the Revolutionary War. He is on the 18 Jun 1776 muster roll of the Third Regt. of Col. Pierre Van Cortlandt's Westchester County Brigade.5
  • "Tunis was not on the tax records of Phillipstown at the time of the Revolution and was apparently at that time a resident of Cortlandt Manor. People were back and forth between Cortlandt Manor (leased land owned by the Van Cortlandt family in what is now Westchester County) and what is now Putnam County (all of present day Putnam Co. was owned by the Philipse family and was also leased land). In both cases the resident paid taxes.
    Several generations of the Brewer family, Tunis and son John, lived in the area of lower Putnam Co. where there were few church records and other records are sparse."2
  • A Tunis Brewer, private, is on the muster roll of Lieut. Colonel Beverley Robinson's Company, Loyal American Regiment, Flushing, Long Island, 18 June 1781. This, and other Regiments recruited at Flushing, Long Island were raised to fight in the Southern Campaign. (No other Tunis Brewer, of age in 1781, is known).6
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at Phillipstown, Dutchess Co., New York, as Teunis Brewer, with a household of 1 male over 16 and 2 females. A Henry Brewer appears on the same census sheet, four listings after Teunis, with a household of 1 male over 16, 2 males under 16, and 3 females.7
  • He appeared on the census in 1800 at Philips, Dutchess Co., New York, as Teunis Brewer, with a household of 2 males over 45, 1 female over 45. He is enumerated next to John Brewer, Jr.3,8
  • John Brewer, Sr., John Brewer, Jr., and Teunis Brewer are all enumerated in the town of Phillips, Dutchess Co., New York on the 1800 Federal Census. John Brewer, Jr., and Teunis Brewer are recorded in succession on the same census sheet.
  • Peter Brewer is claimed as a son of Tunis Brouwer (from a source without supporting documentation) and although it is certainly possible, no records or evidence has yet been found to back this assumption. It is also possible that Peter is a son of one of Tunis Brouwer's brothers, and he may well not be a descendant of the Adam Brouwer line found in Westchester County at all.9

Those silver dollars are kept in the family as relics, their date being 1773, under the reign of Charles III of Spain. Wilhelmus married Jane Gray, and after years of labor and thrift he built a large two-story frame house, which is still used as a tenant house and is in a good state of preservation, though ninety years old.

  • From History of Montgomery and Fulton Counties, N.Y.: "One of the early settlers in the town, and in this part of it, was Harmen Visscher, the founder of the Visscher family whose eventful history is elsewhere given. On the Hansen patent, the same tract with the Visschers, and adjoining that place on the north, William H. Brower bought one hundred and fifty acres for $1 per acre from his father, who was one of the earliest settlers in the town of Palatine. The purchaser did not occupy this place until after the Revolutionary war, through which he served. One of the actions in which he participated was Montgomery's ill-starred attack on Quebec. On the retreat of the Americans from Canada, Brower had charge of one of the cannon as far as Springfield, Mass., where he was taken with the small-pox. At the close of the war he settled on the land he had bought, and built a log house. He was much troubled by wolves, which killed his sheep and even a colt. In course of time he built another house, which is still standing, being used as a tenement, and is represented on another page in a view of the home of his grandson, H.T.E. Brower. The latter has in his possession a Spanish dollar of the date of 1772, which was the first money his grandfather made on the new place. He got it by burning a tree, and taking the ashes to the potash factory which had been established at Johnstown by Sir. William Johnson."14
