The many generations and branches of the Brewerey family can all place the origins of their surname with the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name reveals that an early member worked as a brewer. The surname Brewerey 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 Brewerey family to the New World and Oceana


To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Brewerey family emigrate to North America: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
