The ancestry of the name Brewerry can be traced back to the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. It is a name for a brewer. The surname Brewerry 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 Brewerry family to the New World and Oceana
In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England
, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Brewerrys to arrive on North American shores: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
