An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The Anglo-Saxon name Brewen comes from the baptismal name Brun. As the naming tradition grew in Europe baptismal names began to be introduced in many countries. Baptismal names were sometimes given in honor of Christian saints and other biblical figures. There are hardly any Christian countries in Europe that did not adopt surnames from these religious figures.

Brewen Early Origins



The surname Brewen was first found in Leicestershire where they held a family seat from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D. The name was originally Bregwin, pronounced Brewin.
