Lena Brouwer

b. 11 April 1772, d. between 1847 and 1848
  • Lena Brouwer was born on 11 April 1772 at Dutchess Co., New York.1
  • She married Joshua Manning, son of John Manning and Martha, at Pleasant Valley, Dutchess Co., New York, on 22 April 1789.2,3
  • Lena Brouwer died between 1847 and 1848.1,4
  • Also known as Helena Brower.
  • Also known as Lany Brower.3
  • Lena's husband was born about 1769, and her first child was born in 1789. The 1790 census shows the family with only the one child. She is named in her father's will of Sep 1777, as fifth among his daughters which would place her birth at about 1772, and if so, she would have been married by seventeen.5
  • She was living on 15 April 1797; when she and her husband petitioned the New York Surrogate Court in Albany regarding the estate of her father Nicholas Brower.2
  • The 1810 Federal census records a Mrs. Manning in New York Ward 1, New York Co., New York with a family of 5 males under 10, 1 female under 10, 1 female 16-25, 1 female 26-44. She is enumerated between Wm. Vandewater and Peter A. Schenck.6
  • She was a member of the at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, on 5 June 1817 "Helen Brower, wife of Joshua Manning, by certificate from Reformed Dutch Church at Poughkeepsie."7
  • , On 29 Oct 1831, in Ulster County, Josiah Drake was deposed before Reuben H. Hine, J.P. and Comm. of Deeds for Ulster County. Josiah states that he lives in the town of New Paltz and states that Hellenah Manning is the daughter of Nicholas Brower and Sarah Drake, "all of which the said Josiah Drake knows of his own personal knowledge being personally acquainted with them." Josiah further states that Nicholas Brower is the son of Adolphus Brower and Adolphus was the son of Jacob Brower and Annette Bogardus, the wife of Jacob Brower. Josiah states that one other daughter of Annatie Bogardus and Jacob Brower the said Josiah believes was named Magdalena Brower and the said Magdalena was the grandmother of Josiah Drake and the great grandmother of the above named Hellenah Manning and the above named Sarah Drake is the daughter of William Drake and William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower who is the daughter of Jacob Brower and Annatie Bogardus.
    (This deposition creates more questions then it answers. Josiah does not state who he believes Magdalena Brower was married to. Early, accounts of the Brower-Drake families have claimed that Magdalena was the wife of John Drake, while 20th century genealogical research has concluded that John Drake's wife was Martha Oldfield]. Josiah does not state who his parents are, but states that he is a grandson of Magdalena Brower [Josiah cannot be John Drake's son, Joseph, as he died in 1808]. Could Josiah be implying that Magdalena was married to a brother of John Drake, possibly Josiah, b. 1683? Might John Drake have been married twice, first to Magdalena Brouwer and second to Martha Oldfield?8
  • Letter from Jeremiah Brouwer to Lena Brouwer: In this letter dated 2 April 1832, Jeremiah writes from Hopewell, New York (Chapinville Post Office) to Helenah Manning, 216 Division Street, City of New York. He signs the letter as, "your brother Jeremiah Brower." The letter concerns mistakes made in a previous letter Jeremiah wrote concerning their pedigree. He asks Helenah whether "Grandfather Adolphus was the oldest son of Great Grandfather Jacob Brower who married Anneke, the daughter of William Bogardus." Jeremiah is of the belief that "Great Grandfather Jacob" had eight children. (The inquiry is being made in an effort to demonstrate a right of nheritence to the "Jans and Bogardus" property).9
  • Lena Brouwer and Nicholas Birdsall Brower, asked the Chancery Court of Dutchess County on 17 April 1833, to take depositions from William Lane and Josiah Drake. Their reasons stated were that they expect to be made a party (with other devices and heirs of Annetie Jans widow of Domine Everardus Bogardus, deceased) in a suit in some Court, concerning the title to certain lands in the City of New York.
    The deposition of William Lane was taken at his house in the town of New Paltz, Ulster County on 23 May 1833. In his deposition William Lane states that he is 75 years of age, and that his mother, Elizabeth Drake, was the daughter of William Drake, and that William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower and John Drake to whom the said Magdalena Brower had been married. The deponent further states that the said Magdalena was the sister of Adolphus Brouwer, and that the said Magdalena and Adolphus were the children of Jacob Brouwer and Annetie his wife, formerly Annetie Bogardus. That the said Magdalena was the mother of Josiah Drake and great-grandmother of Helena Manning, the said Helenor Manning being a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer who was the son of Adolphus who was the son of Jacob Brouwer.
    The deponent then claims that the said Magdalena and her husband lived on a farm in New York called the Domine's Hook containing upwards of 130 acres, and that Magdalena claimed the land as hers. The deponent understood and believes that the house was burnt down during the Revolutionary War while Magdalena lived there. The deponent heard that the Church of England claimed the property and that he understood that there had been lawsuits regarding the property but did not know the particulars.
    (This account of William Lane's, specifically with regard th the claim that Magdalena Brower and John Drake were the parents of William Drake and Josiah Drake, is not consistant with other evidence, particularly with the claim that John Drake was the father of William and Josiah. What is of concern is that William Lane, having been born in 1758, would have had the opportunity to personally know his claimed great-grandfather, John Drake, who was living as late as 1779.).10
  • On 20 May 1839, Helena stated that she lived in New York City.11
  • Lena Brouwer appeared on the census in 1840 at Ward 14, New York City, New York Co., New York.12
  • On 10 Aug 1846, Helenah Manning wrote from Poughkeepsie, New York, inquiring for the records of the courts for the year 1798 to be examined to see if "there was not a suit pending between Nicholas N. Brower and his wife for a separate maintenance."13

Regarding her recent ancetsry, the notes state that Nicholas Brower, son of Adolphus Brower and Jane Ferdon, married Mary Dutcher of Wallabout, L.I. and had children Jane, Nicholas, David, Elizabeth and Mary. Mary Dutcher died in 1763 and on 31 March 1765, Nicholas married Sarah Drake, daughter of William Drake. By her he hd six children, William, Jermiah, Jacob, Sarah who married James Tompkins, Lany who married Joshua Manning and Cornelia who married James Tarrant. Lany Manning had six children: James, Sarah married Golden deceased, left one son, John M. Golden; Martha, married Robert Pitcairn; Helenah, married John Overbaugh, John, deceased, left one child named Caroline; Cornelia, never maried. "Therefore, Martha Pitcairn's claim would be 1/6 of 1/6 of 1/10 of 1/8 of the 2 parcels or pieces of land aforesaid. The rest of Lany Mannings children are still living".

Lena Brouwer1

b. 11 February 1739, d. 4 June 1739
  • Lena Brouwer was baptized on 11 February 1739 at Dutch Reformed Church, Schraalenburgh, Bergen Co., New Jersey; sponsors Niclaes Brouwer and Jannetje Furman (sic, read Truman), sister.2
  • She is said to have died on 4 June 1739 "bitten by a snake." The story reports that she was bitten three times by a rattlesnake and died soon thereafter.3
  • Also known as Lea Brouwer Note; Lea and Lena are NOT twins, they are one and the same person. The Schraalenburgh baptism record does NOT record twins.4
  • According to William J. Hoffman, Lena (Lea) did not marry James Stegg, as has been suggested by some early accounts of this family.
  • William J. Hoffman assigns the death of a daughter of Adolphus Brouwer to Lena (Lea). The death, by rattle-snake bite, occurred in early June and if this daughter was in fact Lena, she would have been only four months old. The report of the death, as published in The Boston Weekly Post-Boy, June 11, 1739, however, reads as follows: "New York, June 4. Last Week a young Woman, the daughter of Adolph Brower, of Hackensack was bit in three different places by a Rattle-Snake, as she was gathering Straw berries; the injected venom operated so speedy that she died in a few Hours."
    This account does not describe a four month old infant. An infant would not have been called a "young Woman," and a four month old would certainly have not been out picking strawberries. A footnote to this a reprint of this article as found in Documents Relating to the Colonial History of the State of New Jersey; Extracts from American Newspapers, relating to New Jersey, 1704-1775, Vol. 2, pages 571-572, adds, "Doubtless Femmetje, daughter of Adolf Brouwer and Jannestie Verdon, baptized in the Hackensack church 1 December 1723."
    The problem here of course is that Femmetje is then claimed to be the wife of John Gesner and if this is correct she could not have died in 1739.5

Lysbeth Willemse Brouwer1,2

b. 12 October 1681, d. between 1730 and 9 November 1738
  • Lysbeth Willemse Brouwer was baptized on 12 October 1681 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York; sponsors Jacob Leydsler, Elsje Thymens.4
  • She married Harmen Gerretsz van Sant, son of Gerrit Stoffelszen and Lysbeth Cornelis, at probably Brooklyn, Kings Co., New York, circa 1697.5
  • Lysbeth Willemse Brouwer died between 1730 and 9 November 1738 at Bensalem, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania; (her husband married his second wife on 9 Nov 1738).
  • Also known as Elizabeth.
  • She witnessed the baptism of Gerrit van Sant , son of Joris Gerritsz van Sant and Maike Vandergrift, on 31 December 1710 at Reformed Church, Bensalem, Bucks Co., Pennsylvania, (sponsor Elisabet Brouwers, wife of Herman van Sandt).6
  • Hoffman (TAG 23:205): "Her year of birth has been given as 1681, but that has not been verified (note: Hoffman apparently missed he record of baptism in the RDC, New York). She is often shown as the wife of Jan Parcell, but here again the wife of Jan Parcell is a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer. It would seem that Lysbeth married Harmen Gerrits, for there was no other Elizabeth Brouwer of the right age to have married prior to 1704. For in that year they had a son Gerrit, baptized in the New York Dutch Reformed Church for whom Abraham Brouwer and Jannetje Brouwer acted as sponsors."1

  • She possibly married Willem van Oort before 1720.4
  • Magdalena Jacobse Brouwer is said to have married Joost Vredenburgh, son of Isaac Vredenburgh and Jannetje Joosten, William J. Hoffman in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:28) argues against this claim, stating, "According to some authorities, she (Magdalena Brouwer) married Joost Vredenburg, but the names of their children point to Vredenburg's wife being the daughter of Nicholas Brouwer, and I have shown her as such. Other authorities, among these the Hill Manuscript at the N.Y. Gen. and Biog. Society, show this Magdalena to have married John Drake."2
  • Magdalena Jacobse Brouwer is said to have married John Drake, son of Josias Janszen Drats and Aeltje Adamse Brouwer, in 1718 or 4 February 1720 William J. Hoffman covers this claim in "Brouwer Beginnings" (TAG 24:31) under his sketch of John Drake with "Statements about his (John Drake's) marriage or marriages are not established by record proof. In his will (1779) he mentions his wife Martha. Information about him has been published in the Drake Genealogy by Avery and in Chambers' Early Germans of New Jersey in which there are mistakes. He has been given Magdalena Brouwer for a wife, apparently the daughter of that name of Jacob Brouwer and Annatje Bogardus bapt. NYDR Mar. 8, 1704, the only Magdalena who can be considered, since the marriages of contemporaries of that name have been established. The marriage date has variously been given as Feb. 4, 1720 and 1718. In the later year the bride would have been 14 years old. These dates are said to have been taken from Bible records, as also the names and birth dates of their children whose baptismal dates are not found on record. I have no knowledge where these Bible records are at present."5
  • Magdalena Brouwer and William Van Note possibly had ten other children.4
  • Magdalena Jacobse Brouwer was living on 30 March 1772 at Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., New Jersey.6
  • She was granted administration of the estate of Willem van Oort on 30 March 1772; to Magdalen Vannorte, widow, and Jacob Vannorte, son of said William, both of Shrewsbury. Fellowbondsman, Jacob Brewer of Shrewsbury, and John Van Clefe of Freehold. (Lib. K, page 413).6,7
  • Lena Brouwer and Nicholas Birdsall Brower asked the Chancery Court of Dutchess County on 17 April 1833, to take depositions from William Lane and Josiah Drake. Their reasons stated were that they expect to be made a party (with other devices and heirs of Annetie Jans widow of Domine Everardus Bogardus, deceased) in a suit in some Court, concerning the title to certain lands in the City of New York.
    The deposition of William Lane was taken at his house in the town of New Paltz, Ulster County on 23 May 1833. In his deposition William Lane states that he is 75 years of age, and that his mother, Elizabeth Drake, was the daughter of William Drake, and that William Drake was the son of Magdalena Brower and John Drake to whom the said Magdalena Brower had been married. The deponent further states that the said Magdalena was the sister of Adolphus Brouwer, and that the said Magdalena and Adolphus were the children of Jacob Brouwer and Annetie his wife, formerly Annetie Bogardus. That the said Magdalena was the mother of Josiah Drake and great-grandmother of Helena Manning, the said Helenor Manning being a daughter of Nicholas Brouwer who was the son of Adolphus who was the son of Jacob Brouwer.
    The deponent then claims that the said Magdalena and her husband lived on a farm in New York called the Domine's Hook containing upwards of 130 acres, and that Magdalena claimed the land as hers. The deponent understood and believes that the house was burnt down during the Revolutionary War while Magdalena lived there. The deponent heard that the Church of England claimed the property and that he understood that there had been lawsuits regarding the property but did not know the particulars.
    (This account of William Lane's, specifically with regard th the claim that Magdalena Brower and John Drake were the parents of William Drake and Josiah Drake, is not consistant with other evidence, particularly with the claim that John Drake was the father of William and Josiah. What is of concern is that William Lane, having been born in 1758, would have had the opportunity to personally know his claimed great-grandfather, John Drake, who was living as late as 1779.).8
  • Lillian Avery Drake published Drake Genealogy in the Line of Samuel Drake in 1926. On page 9 she states that Jan or John Drake, bapt. in Brooklyn, N.Y., 12:11:1687; married Feb. 24, 1720, Madelina Brower, b. 1704 (bapt. March 8); dau. of Jacobus and Annette (Bogardus) Brower of Gowanus, L.I." The author does not include a source for the marriage date of John Drake and Madelina Brower.9
  • Imogene H. Lane, in her unpublished manuscript titled, "Drakes of Orange Co., New York, and Related Familes" (1971) makes the statement that "Records indicate that John Drake married Magdalena Brouwer (his cousin). The date given by the Nova Caesarea Chapter, however, is 1718, and lists their children as follows..." (she then lists nine children: Benjamin, Josiah, John who m. Christina Kremer, Samuel m. Sarah Handy, William, Zephaniah, Martha m. Jackson, Mary m. Holly, Ester m. Krap.).
    The author then states that "John Drake appears to be the same who married Martha Oldfield before 1741. It was at this time that Martha's father, Joseph Oldfield, died and Martha Drake was heir to his estate."
    Imogene Lane concludes, "Although the date of death of Magdalena Drake has not been ascertained, it would appear that she may have died and John Drake married Martha Oldfield before his daughter Martha was born in 1723."
    (If the assumption that Magdalena Brouwer was married to William Van Note, then the opinion that John Drake was married to both Magdalena Brouwer and then Martha Oldfield, cannot be valid as William Vannote's widow, Magdalen, was granted administration on his estate on 30 March 1772).10
  • William B. Bogardus further explains the incorrect identification of Magdalena as a wife of John Drake in Dear Cousin: A Charted Genealogy of the Descendants of Anneke Jans Bogardus, see "Most Frequent Errors and Incorrect or Unproven Lines of Descent from Anneke Jans," (online at http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~ghosthunter/Anneke/page6.htm).11

  11. [S1282] William Brower Bogardus, Dear "Cousin": A Charted Genealogy of the Descendants of Anneke Jans Bogardus (1605-1663) to the 5th Generation - and of her sister, Marritje Jans (Wilmington, OH, U.S.A.: Anneke Jans and Everardus Bogardus Descendants Association, 1996), page 44-45. "Perhaps the most widely accepted but unproven line of descent from Anneke Jans is the connection which begins with the alleged marriage of Magdalena Brouwer, bp. 8 Mar 1704, daughter of Jacobus Brouwer and Anna Bogardus, to John Drake. This error was first brought to the attention of interested genealogists in The American Genealogist, Vol. 30, July 1954, p. 176 and Vol. 31, January 1955, p. 54, being corrections and additions to William J. Hoffman's "Brouwer Beginnings - The First Three Generations of the Adam Brouwer Berchoven Family," published in The American Genealogist, Vols. 23 and 24, 1947-1948.
    The alleged children of Magdalena and John Drake, namely Joseph, John,
    Martha, Phoebe, Esther, Eleanor, William, Jacob, Samuel, Benjamin, Mary and
    Zephaniah, were indeed John's children, most of whom are named in the will of John
    Drake of Goshen Prect., Orange Co., New York, dated 6 February 1779 and proved
    28 January 1780; it should be noted, however, that in his will John mentions his
    wife's name as "Martha".
    In the very professional article by Neil D. Thompson, "Auguste Grasset of La Rochelle, London, and New York City," National Genealogical Society Quarterly, Vol. 66, No. 1, March 1978, it is quite clearly shown that the wife of John Drake was Martha Oldfield, the daughter of Joseph Oldfield and Martha Grasset. As a point to also consider, some of the children of John Drake and Martha Oldfield are clearly named after members of Martha's family, i.e., Martha-for John's wife and mother-in-law, Martha Grasset; Esther and Mary-for Martha's Aunts, Esther and Marianne Grasset, and for her sisters, Hester and Mary Oldfield; Samuel-for Martha's uncle, Samuel Grasset.
    A very conclusive fact of evidence that leaves no question as to the identity of John's wife is given by an old bible record of the Daines family of Chester, New York, which states that William Drake was the son of John Drake and identifies one of the sons of William as David Grasset Drake. An excellent unpublished account of the family of John Drake and Martha Oldfield and some of their descendants can be found in Drakes of Orange Co., New York, and Related Families, by Imogene H. Lane (Family History Library microfilm No. 0872801, item #4 on the film).
    In addition to the above, it should be noted that on Chart No. 7A of this book the husband of Magdalena Brouwer has now been identified as William Van Note who died intestate in March 1772, naming his widow, "Magdalen Vannorte", and son, "Jacob Vannorte", both of Shrewsbury, Monmouth Co., New Jersey, as administrators of his estate. Fellow bondsmen are also identified as Jacob Brewer of Shrewsbury and John Van Clafe of Freehold, Monmouth County. An inventory of William's estate was also made by Jacob Laing and Elazerus Brewer on 10 April 1772.
    This identification of William Van Note as the husband of Magdalena Brouwer is, of course, circumstantial but is also accompanied by the fact that two brothers of Magdalena, namely Willem, bp. 8 May 1687 and John, possibly b. 5 September 1692, married two sisters of William Van Note, i.e., Maria Hennion, nee Van Noordt, widow of Pieter Hennion; and Janneke Van Oort, respectively. It is obvious that the Brouwer and Van Note families were very close inasmuch as both Willem and John Brouwer and their wives appear as witnesses at the baptisms of the children of several Van Note sisters of Willem at the New Amsterdam/New York Reformed Dutch Church.. Hereinafter cited as Dear "Cousin."

Magdalena Abrahamse Brouwer1

b. 21 March 1697
  • Magdalena Abrahamse Brouwer was baptized on 21 March 1697 at Old First Dutch Reformed Church, Breuckelen (Brooklyn), Kings Co., Long Island, New York; sponsors Nicklaes Brouwer, Jannetje Brouwer.2

  • Magdalena Abrahamse Brouwer married second John Turner.4
  • Also known as Helena.
  • Also known as Lena Brewer.3
  • Hoffman covers Magdalena in "Brouwer Beginnigs," with the following insight: The name "Helena" is a common variant of Magdalena, and she is often referred to as Helena in many records (she was married as Helena). In 1724 Magdalena Brouwer and her husband Jan Blok act as sponsors for a child of Maritje Brouwer (her sister). It may be that the record was in error and should read "Jan Reyn." No Jan Blok, Magdalena Brouwer couple has been found. She acted as sponsor as "Helena Brouwer, widow of John Tournor in 1749 for the baptism of her grandson Jan Ryn Dirkson (son of Helena Reyn and David Dirkson).1
  • Magdalena Abrahamse Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Hendrick van Leeuw , son of Hendrick Van Leeuwen and Marytje Abrahamse Brouwer, on 4 March 1724 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Jurian Brouwer, Helena Brouwer, h.v.v. Jan Blok).5
  • Magdalena Abrahamse Brouwer witnessed the baptism of Helena Burger , daughter of Johannes Burger and Jannetje Abrahamse Brouwer, on 7 June 1730 at Reformed Dutch Church, New York City, New York, (sponsors Jan Reyn, Helena Brouwer, s.h.v.).6
