John Brewer, III, son of John & Anne (Unknown) Brewer, b. 1635; d. 1701, Isle of Wight Co., VA. It is not known who he married. The only known child of John Brewer, II was George Brewer I

John Breweer III was born 1635 in Jamestown, Isle of Wight County Virginia, and died ca 1701 - 05 in Isle of Wight County, Virginia. he married Ann (Jeanna) - John may have lived on Stanley Hundred for a time, but he seeems to have been living in what is now Brunswick County at the time of his death, whereas Stanley Hundred apprear to lie fifty miles northeast of Brunswick. he saw and doubtless had a part in Bacon's Rebellion, in 1676. Setters, south of the James, were a bit more of the "Rugged Individual" type and less sympathetic toward the King. His departure for the West and the "outland" Brunswick County area was doubtless due to the Governor Berkeley's policies, Governor Berkeley's "Hanging List" does not contain his name. When he died, he left no will, although he had some wealth, and the names of some of his children are uncertain. He was probably the first of the Brewers to "go West" and in after years, the valleys and mountains of Brunswick County were populated by an amazing number of repurted "Rebels". Rebels or not, this spot was liteally bursting with Brewers for c century afterwards and the anme was repected there - all of which leads to the idea that John Brewer III had a share in the first blow for Liberty.
