The history of the name Brewaray dates back to the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture of Britain. It is derived from a member of the family who worked as a brewer. The surname Brewaray is derived from the Old English word brewere, which in turn comes from the Old English word breowan, which means to brew. However, the name may also be derived from residence in the place called Bruer in Lincolnshire, the settlement of Bruera in Cheshire, or even the place called Bruyère in Calvados, Normandy. The name of the Norman settlement is derived from the Old French word bruière, which means heath, while the names of the English settlements are translated from the Old English word hæth, which has the equivalent meaning.

Migration of the Brewaray family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Brewaray were among those contributors: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
