Browery is a name that was formed by the Anglo-Saxon
society of old Britain. The name was thought to have been used for someone who once worked as a brewer. The surname Browery 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 Browery family to the New World and Oceana
Thousands of English families boarded ships sailing to the New World in the hope of escaping the unrest found in England
at this time. Although the search for opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad took the lives of many because of the cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels, the opportunity perceived in the growing colonies of North America beckoned. Many of the settlers who survived the journey went on to make important contributions to the transplanted cultures of their adopted countries. The Browery were among these contributors, for they have been located in early North American records: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
