This work contains errors, among them the false account of Anneke Jans descent from William of Orange. 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. p.16.

Derck Jansz Brouwer1

b. circa 1666, d. 1702 or 1703
  • Derck Jansz Brouwer was probably born circa 1666 at Flatlands, Kings Co., Long Island, New York.
  • He married Hannah Daws, daughter of Elias Daws and Anna, at Flatlands, Long Island, New York, on 6 October 1694.2
  • Derck Jansz Brouwer probably died in 1702 or 1703 at Jamaica, Queens Co., Long Island, New York.
  • Also known as Dirck Brouwer.
  • He took the Oath of Allegiance in September 1687 at Flatlands, Kings Co., New York, as "Dirck brouwer, native."3
  • Served in the NY Militia under Maj. Peter Schuyler, 1691-92 during King William's War.4
  • By a deed dated 25 Sep 1694 (Gravesend Book VI, p.136) Peter Carsten of Cape May in the province of West Jersey, sold to Cornelis Williamsen and Dirck Brower, two "allotments of land lying and being in the limitts and bounds of Gravesend upon Gisberts Island...land received from William Goulding living then in this towne of Gravesend."5
  • "Derick Brewer & his wife Hannah," with one child are listed among the Dutch Inhabitants of the Town of Flushing, Queens County, Long Island in 1698.6
  • "Dirrick Brewer of Jamaica and Hendrick Brouwer of Flatlands" sold a house and 75 acres on the borders of Hempstead, Jamaica, and Flushing with a deed of sale dated 22 September 1700 and acknowledged 6 May 1701.7
  • See Richard Brewer's website, "Brewer Descendants of Johannes (Jan) Brouwer," "Derck's Line" for additional information regarding the descendants of Derck Brouwer. A link is provided in the footnote.8
  • Samuel Brouwer is a possible son of Derck Jansz Brouwer. Samuel is possibly the youngest son of Derck Brouwer, in which case Samuel may have named daughters for his mother Annatje/Hannah Dawes He is found at Raritan during the same time as supposed brothers Elias, Pieter and Jacob (Samuel and Jacob had children baptized at the Reformed Church there on the same day 19 Jan 1735). Placement as a son of Derck Brouwer would have to imply that Samuel was born 1702/03 at the latest. (This placement is unlikely, and Samuel is more likely a descendant of Adam Brouwer of Gowanus, L.I.).

Derck Brouwer1

b. between 1699 and 1703
  • Derck Brouwer was possibly born between 1699 and 1703.
  • He lived at Hempstead, Queens Co., New York.1
  • A "Deric Brevar" was on a 1738 muster roll for the Queens County militia. "Derick Brewer" was named as an adjoining property owner in 1742 in Hempstead (Records of the Towns of North and South Hempstead, Long Island, NY 8:294, 429).2,3
  • Although called "possibly" a son of Derck Brouwer and Hannah Dawes (NYG&B Record 138:259), it has to be said that he has the weakest claim to this parentage of any of Derck and Hannah's sons. Derck is only found in the records as an adult at Hempstead, Long Island, while the remainder of the family is in New Jersey. In the absence of a family of his own, and/or an association with other descendants of Jan in the form of wills or deeds, Derck's place in the descent from the family progenitor Jan Brouwer of Flatlands can not be determined at this time. He is placed here for now only because of the above mentioned reference.

Dirck Brouwer1

b. 27 June 1729
  • Father*: Jan Brouwer1 b. 9 Jun 1695, d. bt 29 Oct 1732 - 13 Nov 1732
  • Mother*: Aegje Sprong b. 8 Jun 1701, d. b 29 Oct 1732
  • Dirck Brouwer was baptized on 27 June 1729 at First Reformed Church, Raritan (Somerville), Somerset Co., New Jersey; (no witnesses recorded).2
  • He married Annatie before 1759.1
  • Dirck Brouwer was buried at Sand Hole Cemetery (Rockville Cemetery), Lynnbrook, (now Nassau Co.), New York; (no stone).3
  • Surname is also spelled Bruer.4
  • Also known as Richard Brower.1
  • Also known as Dirck Brewer.5
  • Dirck, called second son, is named in his father's will dated 29 Oct 1732.6
  • He is possibly the Dirck Brouwer who enlisted in the Kings Co., New York militia, 15 Mar 1759, age 26; 5' 7 1/2", light complexion. The location is right, but the age is off.
  • One published account states: "He probably moved with his brother and was the Derick/Richard Brower who married Annatie/Hannah and was first of record in Hempstead in 1760 (baptism of a child)."1
  • William A.D. Eardeley: "He lived in South Hempstead, Long Island, New York: at Lynnbrook, not far from the Old Sand Hole Cemetery: he may have lived 1760 to 1762 in Success, now Manhasset, New York, but this is doubted."3
  • He appeared on the census in 1790 at South Hempstead, Queens Co., New York, called Dirck Brewer, with a household of 4 males over 16, a male under 16, 2 females, and 2 other free persons.5
  • According to Eardeley, no will or administration of the estate of Dirck Brower has been found.3
  • Dirck Brouwer and Dirck Brouwer, were both born in New Jersey within a three year period, and some records found pertaining to a Dirck Brouwer of this period could apply to either one. Caution is advised.
  • It has been stated by a descendant, that Jan Brewer, along with his siblings, Dirck and Antje, were raised by their widowed aunt, Cornelia Brewer, after the death of both of their parents.7

Dirck Brouwer1

b. 15 August 1732
  • Dirck Brouwer was baptized on 15 August 1732 at Reformed Dutch Church, Harlingen (Montgomery Twp.), Somerset Co., New Jersey; sponsors Cornelis Middag and Eyke Traphargen.2
  • The identity of his wife (assuming he had one) is unknown. That he is the father of possible brothers, David Brewer and Elias Brewer of Westmoreland Co., Pennsylvania, has not been proved. Descendants are tentative.
  • Also known as Derick Brewer.2
  • Also known as Derrick Brewer.3
  • Also known as Richard Brewer.
  • He is possibly the Dirck Brouwer who enlisted in the King Co., New York militia, 15 Mar 1759, age 26; 5' 7 1/2", light complexion. The age is about right, but the location raises doubts.4
  • Dirck Brouwer and Dirck Brouwer, were both born in New Jersey within a three year period, and some records found pertaining to a Dirck Brouwer of this period could apply to either one. Caution is advised.
  • Derrick Brewer is identified by name by Jacob Jennings Warner Brewer in an 1899 interview. Derrick would be Jacob's great-grandfather, and as it is apparent from the documnets he left, Jacob was very much interested in his ancestry and it is not beyond reason to expect that he therefore knew, at least the name of, his great-grandfather. Derrick's approximate year of birth (1730 to 1735) was then calculated by working backwards from his great-grandson who was born in 1815. In addition, DNA testing of a descendant of Jacob Jennings Warner Brewer, has demonstrated that his ancestors are descended from the progenitor, Jan Brouwer of Flatlands. Presently it is concluded that Dirck Brouwer, baptized 1732, is probably the ancestor of the families shown as descendants here. Additional evidence is needed before this can be considered as certain.
  • Dirck Brouwer and Richard Brouwer, may be father and son. This based upon Y-DNA analysis of descendants, but no documented evidence has been found to support the possibility. If Richard (the son) were born in the late 1730s or early 1740s, this father-son relationship would not be possible.
  • Elias Brewer is a possible son of Dirck Brouwer. This possibility has not been proved and is suggested as a possibility based on the fact that both Elias and a David Brewer are found in Redstone, PA, and this David Brewer's father was said to have been named Derrick (memoir of David's grandson Jacob Jennings Warner Brewer). This suggestion should not be taken as fact, and proof that Elias and David were brothers has not been found. A direct male descendant of David Brewer has taken a Y-DNA test and the results prove he is a descendant of Jan Brouwer of Flatlands, L. I. A direct male descendant of Elias Brewer is sought for Y-DNA testing (with the Brewer DNA Project at FTDNA) for a comparison.
  • Stephen Brewer is a possible son of Dirck Brouwer. Based upon a combination of Y-DNA test results from various descendants of Jan Brouwer, of Flatlands, L. I., and circumstantial evidence found in records regarding other genetic descendants of the same Jan Brouwer.
  • Dirck Brouwer and Richard Brewer, may be one and the same.
