  • Another source says Hannah Brouwer died in 1822 at Shawangunk, Ulster Co., New York, at the home of son Cornelius Turner.5,6
  • Also known as Nauchy.7
  • She was baptized as Annaetjen daughter of Cornelius Brouwer and Maria Raffel.3
  • She is decribed as the heir in law (of one twentieth part of a mill seat on the Bronx River) to Nicholas Brouwer (d.1749) and wife of Edmund Turner (d.1805). Hannah was allegedly insane from (at least) 1801 until her death in 1822. She left several children and grandchildren, one of her surviving children was Jemima Thorp (d.1832) mother of Cornelius D. Thorp and married to Peter Thorp when nineteen years of age. Peter died in 1832, and Jemima died in 1842.8
  • She is named in her husband's will on 30 June 1806 to receive all her husband's real estate, together with one feather bed and bedding. (No mention of her mental condition).9
  • In April 1851, Elizabeth Caywood, daughter of Hannah (Nauchy) Turner, gave testimony as to the ancestry of her mother. Elizabeth states that her mother, Hannah, also known as Nauchy, was the only child of Cornelius Brower and Molly De Roselle. Hannah was born in Tuckahoe, Westchester Co., N.Y., about 1730. She married Edmund Turner at Tuckahoe at age 19, and died at Shawangunk in 1816. Edmund Turner had died at Plattekill in Ulster County, prior to Hannah.
    Elizabeth further states that Cornelius was the son of Nicholas and Yannetje Brower, both resided at Bronx River, Westchester Co., N.Y. Cornelius died about 1733 at Bronx River.
    Elizabeth states that the family tradition named eight children of Nicholas and Yannetje Brower: Adolphus, Nicholas, Cornelius, Nazareth, Jenny, Hannah, Lana, and Anna. She understood that Nicholas was a millwright. She thinks that Nicholas went to North Carolina after the Revolution (this cannot be the first Nicholas as he was certainly deceased).
    Mary (De Roselle) Brower survived her husband, Cornelius, and married second, David Demarest (lists five children).7

  • "Bergen stated that he went to Raritan and married Elizabeth, this must be an error, for the Hendrick Brouwer of Raritan had a son named Adam and it would seem that the father of this child was Hendrick Brouwer the son of Adam Brouwer Jr, for there is no record of a son Matthys." In other words, the Hendrick Brouwer who went to Raritan and married Elizabeth (___) was a son of Adam Brouwer and Marritje Hendricks.1,3

  • He married Elizabeth before 1721.3
  • Hendrick Brouwer is covered in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:30). Hoffman adds, "It would seem that this Hendrick Brouwer is the one who settled at the Raritan rather than Hendrick, son of Matthys as Bergen and "Our Home" (probably following the former) suggest. Hendrick of the Raritan named his eldest son Adam, and his eldest daughter Marietje, undoubtedly for his parents, the usual Dutch custom. He apparently had no son named Matthys."1
  • Henry Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.
  • Henry Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer. (Conjecture, based soley on the common name of Henry, and the fact that Hendrick Brouwer's children were born in Somerset Co., New Jersey, an area from which families were known to have migrated to western Pennsylvania, Virginia and further to Ohio and Kentucky).
  • Peter Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.
  • Samuel Brewer may be a descendant of Hendrick Adamsz Brouwer.

He left six sons and two daughters, one of whom, Jacob, born 1700, an Indian trader, was barbarously murdered at the falls on the Oswego river in the spring of 1730, by an Onondaga Indian. In 1724 Mrs. Brouwer was also called an Indian trader."13

Hendrick Brouwer

b. circa 1702
  • Hendrick Brouwer was born circa 1702 (assuming at least age 25 in 1727, but possibly earlier, perhaps in the decade of 1690-1700).
  • He married Rachel Bon before 1727.1
  • Also known as Henry Brewis.2
  • Hendrick is possibly a son of Pieter Jansz Brouwer and Annatje Jans. The tentative placement is based soley on the place and time of the baptism of his daughter Sara. A Hendrick Brewer witnessed the will of Johannes Luyster (3 Aug 1766), who was a son of Lucretia Brouwer and Johannes Luyster. However, the witnessing of a will does not necessarily indicate a family relationship (wills are often witnessed by unrelated individuals), and the Hendrick who witnessed the will of Johannes Luyster may be the Hendrick Brewer/Brower (b. 1735), son of Johannes Brouwer and Helena Van Cleef. As of now Hendrick does not have an obvious fit within the families descended from Adam Brouwer. Additional evidence needed before a placement can be finalized.
