Brew History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

The surname Brew can have three possible origins. It can be a Manx name, from MacVriew, or an Irish name, from O Brugha or O Brughadha. Or it can be of Norman descent, from the names de Berewa and de Bruth. Burrough and Burrowes are related to these Norman names, as their English derivatives meaning "dweller at a bower-house."

Early Origins of the Brew family

The surname Brew was first found in Queen's County and Kilkenny, where the Norman surnames de Berewa and de Burgh appear as early as 1190. In County Kildare, one Geoffrey Broy was outlawed as a robber in 1297.
