The Browerie name was coined by the Anglo-Saxon
tribes of Britain. Browerie was originally a name given to someone who worked as a brewer. The surname Browerie 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 Browerie family to the New World and Oceana
Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North America. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Browerie or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
