The name Browarey finds its origins with the ancient Anglo-Saxons of England. It was given to one who worked as a brewer. The surname Browarey 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.

Browarey Early Origins



The surname Browarey was first found in Cambridgeshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Browarey or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
