About Jan Brouwer

Jan Brouwer was born ca. 1628 at Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

He married Jannetje Jans at Europe ca. 1653.5

Jan Brouwer died after 17 November 1702 at probably Flatlands, Kings Co., Long Island, New York; when he confirmed deeds of maintenance with his son Peter written in April 1700.

Jan Brouwer is one of three 17th century Brouwer family progenitors found in New Netherland/New York. He emigrated to New Amsterdam in 1657. He was a blacksmith and lived at Flatlands, Long Island, New York. Sons Johannes and Hendrick appeared to have settled at Hempstead in Queens County, while son Pieter remained at Flatlands. Son, Derek, was among the Dutch inhabitants at Flushing, Queens Co., in 1698. Third generation descendants are also found in Monmouth, Somerset and Hunterdon Counties, New Jersey, apparently moving there with the migration of Kings County residents to the Raritan Valley area of New Jersey beginning in the first decade of the 1700's. In the past, the close proximity of Jan's family with that of Adam Brouwer's has caused many to confuse and interconnect the two. DNA testing of descendants conducted through the Brewer DNA Project http://www.familytreedna.com/public/BrewerDNA/ and reported in "DNA: Adam Brouwer Berckhoven, Elias Brouwer, and John Brewer" (NYGBR 138 [Oct.2007]:245-49) has demonstrated that any possible common ancestor between the two would have lived tens of thousands of years ago.
