INTRODUCTION 



In response to a desire to learn more about this branch of the 
Brewer family, researches were begun in 1894, and, gradually col- 
lecting material as leisure afforded, quite a quantity of manuscript 
was collected. The aim has been to make as correct a genealogy 
as possible, as far as has been attempted, but not to assume that all 
the Brewers are represented, for several are not mentioned, because 
they did not seem to be in this line.^<^or instance, in Essex Co., 
England, was found a John Brewer, citizen and grocer of London, 
who died 4 Sept., 1631, will proved 13 May, 1636, He was the 
son of Thomas. His wife was Mary Butler, their children John, _ 
Roger and Margaret. He wills a large quantity of land in Virginia *^ 
to his wife and children. This may possibly be the much-sought- 
for ancestor of our first John, who has not as yet been certainly 
found. The time, etc., would make it likely, but not sure. The 
name of Brewer comes from the same origin as Brewster, and is 
sometimes in the same document spelled differently, often Bruer, 
and found in Essex and Suffolk Counties in England. 

In this country the family seem to be in Worcester, Weston, 
Watertown, Cambridge, Sudbury and vicinity, later in Maine. 
Sudbury was settled in 1639; was colonized as Marlborough. In- 
corporated as Sudbury in 1660. 

Worcester was laid out " eight miles square." In 1778 the Gen- 
eral Court committee for Worcester " thought possibly, with proper 
industry and effort, Worcester offered support for sixty families." 
The census for 1900 gives the population as 118,421 on less than 
half of the " eight miles square." 

The writer would here express her gratitude to those who, in any 
way, have enabled her to make this work more reliable and help- 
ful. She is especially grateful to Mrs. S. Augusta (Brewer) Wins- 
low, who has aided by her courtesy, encouragement and financial 
help, and to Mr. H. M. Plimpton, for his care of the printing and 
binding. 

The work has been compiled from the records from family Bibles, 
deeds, commissions, etc., with the help obtained from town records 
and libraries, also by correspondence with those interested in this 
genealogy. If errors are found, the information will be gratefully 
received. Harriet Augusta Robinson.

BREWER GENEALOGY 



The earliest ancestor of this branch of the Brewer family 
seems to be Corporal John^ Brewer, who married Anne of 
Cambridge. Where he came from originally has not been 
learned. We find him in Sudbury, Massachusetts, early, for 
on the Sudbury records the birth of the oldest child John* 
is recorded as born lo Oct., 1642. There are four other 
children, but as they have no further interest for us we do 
not trace their history. 

This John ( i) seems to have been an early and influential 
resident, active in military service, intrusted with the care of 
wills and other legal documents, etc. He appears at the 
General Court 11 Oct., 1676, as a petitioner in behalf of 
himself and other residents of Sudbury for redress on 
account of losses sustained by Indians on 21 April, 1676. 
He received ^200 as his share. 

SECOND GENERATION 

2. John*, son of John (i) and Anne, was born in Sudbury 
10 Oct., 1642, died i Jan., 1690, married Elizabeth, 
daughter of Henry* Rice, eldest son of Deacon 
Edmund^ Rice, who was one of the earliest proprie- 
tors of Marlboro, and owned land in the eastern part 
of Sudbury; probably settled thereabout 1691. The 
son Henry married in Sudbury i Nov., 1643, 
Elizabeth Moore, daughter of John Moore and Eliza- 
beth (Whale) Moore of Sudbury. The Brewer 
family seem to have been interested in churches, for 
Corporal John Brewer is mentioned as making 
propositions for a new church in Sudbury, 10 Jan., 
1688, and they were accepted.

Weston and Suffrana Haynes, daughter of Walter 
and Elizabeth Haynes of Sudbury. This John' is

during the Indian Wars. Lieut. Brewer, 5 Feb., 1699, 
bought a farm in Weston or Watertown Farms, some- 
times called Farmer's Precinct and sometimes Lieut

John^ — Continiced. 

Jones' Co. Precinct. Weston was incorporated 4 Jan., 
1737. He died 5 May, 1709, and is buried in the 
Farmer's Burying Ground, Watertown. 

His widow, Mary (Jones) Brewer of Weston, was 
allowed to keep a public house 15 Dec, 1716. 
Received her license 9 July, 1717.

to John Brewer, the eldest son, to Josiah, second 
son, and to Daniel Brewer, the third son ; two 
brothers-in-law are also mentioned. See Middlesex 
Co. Probate Records, No. 1625. 

The inventory of the estate amounted to ^{^^598. 5s. 
8d., including farm, 216 acres of other lands, a saw- 
mill and grist-mills. These mills were probably in 
what is now Waltham (then Watertown), and were 
for seventy, if not one hundred years, all there were 
in this vicinity. 

In Middlesex Deeds, Vol. 38, page 140, is re- 
corded 13 June, 1729, John Brewer, Hopkinton, 
husbandman, and Josiah Brewer of Weston, black- 
smith, and William Brewer of Weston, blacksmith, 
Nathaniel Allen, husbandman, and Lydia, his wife* 
Joseph Merriam and Mary, his wife, and Submit 
Brewer, children by birth or marriage to John 
Brewer, late of Weston (or Watertown Farms), sell

brother), "being part of the dower of widow Mary 
Brewer, deceased, relict of John Brewer." 

In Smith's History of Newton, page 52, in 1697: 
"Voted, that Lieut. John' Brewer of Sudbury be em- 
ployed as master-workman, on the second building

could have liberty to sit out of the deacon's seat if 
they chose." 'Wit first building was erected in 1660 
and was standing in 171 7. Since then, four others 
have been built and the sixth is to be begun in 1903.

the Old South Church, 17 May, 1762, and 
when it was completed he bought pew 52 
therein. In June, 1770, he with his brother 
John (15) and sister Mary (14), wife of Dr. 
William Crawford, came to Maine, at what is 
now South Brewer. 

In 1774 he with his brother John (15) and 
brother-in-law, Dr. Crawford of Fort Pownal 
(now Fort Point), began to build a saw-mill 
on Segeunkedunk stream. Dr. Crawford sold 
his one-fourth part of the mill to Col. Thomas 
Goldthwait, a native of Chelsea, Mass., but 
now of Fort Point, 12 Nov., 1774. A grist-mill 
was begun but not finished ; Joseph Mansell, 
millwright from Scituate, Mass., was employed 
to build the mill. 

After the Revolutionary War was over it 
was finished in 1783-4. Col. Josiah (13) was 
Colonel of Lincoln Co., Penobscot Regiment. 
His name is on the list of officers of the 
Massachusetts Militia, chosen by Legislature, 
3 May, 1776, commissioned 20 July, 1776, 
also on pay-roll for services from date of 
entry to i July, 1 779. AH the families were 
driven from Brewer by fear of the British 
soldiers in 1780. He was truck-master at 
Fort Halifax on the Kennebec River, in what 
is now the town of Winslow, Me. He was 
allowed £^00 worth of merchandise or stock. 
These truck-houses were places " where arti- 
cles, principally necessaries, with a few gew- 
gaws " were to the amount of ;^i,ooo to 
;^i,500 purchased in Boston every year, at

wholesale prices, and sold at only enough ad- 
vance to cover cost, allowing ten per cent for 
waste. The masters were usually chosen by 
the General Court, special regard being had 
in regard to men of " greatest probity, 
patience and discretion ; whose characters and 
manners were likewise acceptable to the 
natives. The situation was in a few years so 
desirable, that it was sought by men of dis- 
tinguished reputation and influence." He 
returned after peace was declared in 1783, 
and was Justice of the Peace for Lincoln Co., 
Brewer then being in that county. Col. 
Brewer lived on the point near the mouth of 
the Segeunkedunk stream. He was the first 
Colonel of any Massachusetts troops, east of 
the Kennebec River. He certainly had com- 
mand of the Penobscot soldiers during the 
Revolutionary War. He and his wife both 
lived to be seventy-five years of age. She 
seems to have died in what is now Orrington. 
" They were buried in the old Orrington 
burying-ground, near the first meeting-house, 
but when that ground was abandoned and a 
new one set apart some kindly hands removed 
their remains to the new ground. There are 
two small slate grave-stones, near the fence 
overlooking the Penobscot River, in a most 
inconspicuous place for one of the founders of 
the town, and probably one of the most noted 
in the town." The will of Mrs. Brewer 
was made 9 May, 1816, and proved 15 
Aug., 1816.

Rev. Enoch Mudge was executor and was 
given one-third of the estate. She gave to

•' each a decent pocket Bible ; to her niece, 
Abigail Prentiss, heir, she wasthe widowof Dr. 
Nathaniel Prentiss of Roxbury, Mass., and 
to the heirs of Eliza Giblen (widow of Samuel 
Giblen of Marlboro, Mass.)." Col. John (15) 
and his son Josiah (13) were appraisers of 
the estate. 

14. VI. Mary^ dau. of Josiah (7), born 17 Nov., 1736, mar- 

ried Dr. William Crawford of Fort Pownal, now 
Fort Point, Maine. He was the son of Dr. 
Robert and Mary Crawford, was born in Wor- 
cester, Mass., 1730, graduated from Princeton 
10 Oct., 1755, received degree (A.M.) from 
Harvard 1761. Dr. Robert was the first phy- 
sician of Worcester. Dr. William served as 
chaplain in Abijah Willard's Regiment and as 
surgeon in Gen. Ruggles' Regiment. She 
died at Castine, Me., 21 Feb., 1836. From 
an obituary notice in the papers is this, 
" died at Castine, Mrs, Mary* (Brewer) Craw- 
ford, at the age of one hundred years and 
five months, relict of Dr. William Crawford 
who was surgeon and chaplain in army of 
Gen. Wolfe and was attached to his staff" 
at the time of his (Gen. Wolfe's) death at 
Quebec."

19 May, 1745, died 15 June, 1808, dau. of 
Ezra Graves of Sudbury. 

They came to Maine in June, with his 
brother Josiah*, and sister Mary^ wife of Dr. 
William Crawford. They began to build mills 
in Brewer Village (now South Brewer) in that 
year. " Col. Brewer was a decided patriot 
and suffered much during the Revolutionary 
War. He was in some ways one of Brewer's 
most distinguished ancient citizens." He was 
very active in the war. He several times vis- 
ited the British commander. Gen. McLean, at 
Castine in 1779 in the interests of the inhabi- 
tants, and obtained assurances " that if the 
inhabitants would mind their business and be 
peaceable they should not be disturbed in 
their persons or property." Gen. McLean 
was a man of noble character, but Capt. 
Mowatt, who followed him, was a different 
man. He proceeded up the river and threat- 
ened Capt. John* Brewer " to run him through 
with his sword because he carried away in the 
cartel Capt. Ross, who was in command of one 
of our armed vessels." Dr. Downing, a 
surgeon of the fleet, dressed the wounds of 
several men at Capt. Brewer's residence. 

When they were required to take the oath 
of allegiance they rebelled, and thereafter were 
so harassed and worried that they could not 
live there. The British tore down one of the 
Brewer houses. The situation became unbear- 
able, so much so that Capt. Brewer sent his 
family and small effects by Major George

Ulmer to Camden. He got his cattle across 
the river and joined stock with John Crosby 
and others and drove them to Camden. Then 
he took the family to Worcester, where they 
remained until after peace was declared. They 
returned in 1783. 

It is said " that at the time of the Penob- 
scot Expedition that Capt. Brewer went into 
the fort at Castine and examined it, and then 
gave those on board the fleet all the infor- 
mation they could desire, 28 July, 1779, but 
they would not accept the story and were 
defeated." 

His military record is this : He was private 
in Capt. Aaron Haynes' Company, in Col. Jon- 
athan^ Brewer's Regiment, enlisted 15 May, 
1775, muster-roll dated i Aug., 1775. As 
Capt. Haynes' Company came to Concord from 
Sudbury 19 April, 1775, and followed the 
British to Charlestown, he would be at Con- 
cord and Bunker Hill. His name is in the 
company return rolls dated 6 Oct., 1775, at 
Prospect Hill. 

He was captain of Militia Company No. i 
on Upper Penobscot, in Col. Josiah'^ Brewer's 
Regiment, 20 July, 1776. 

Later made Colonel Fifth Regiment of Mas- 
sachusetts Militia, resigned in 1797. In Oct. 
19, 1778, the town of Sudbury appointed men 
to make a complete list of the muster-rolls of 
the services of each person in the war with 
Great Britain. John'^ Brewer's name is on the 
list. His share was £^0.

As a specimen of the ancient regimental orders of this 
time is the following: 

REGIMENTAL ORDERS. 

Adjutant Levi Bradley : 

Sir : — You are hereby required to give orders to the com- 
manding ofificers of the First, Second and Fourth Companies of 
Militia in my regiment to call these companies together on Tuesday, 
the 6th day of October next, to be on the Parade, precisely at ten 
of the clock in the forenoon with good firearms and powder, as the 
law directs. 

The place appointed for parade is on Col. Josiah Brewer's 
point of land, near my house. 

You are likewise requested to notify Col. Shute, Maj. Robert 
Treat and Quartermaster Treat to meet at time and place afore- 
said also. A general invitation to all the officers' wives of the 
regiment, together with the officers of the Third and Fifth Com- 
panies, to meet if they see fit for information and recreation. 

In obedience to this you will oblige your humble servant, 

John Brewer, 

Colonel of the Fifth Regiment of Militia. 
Orrington, Sept. 5, 1789. 

" The Militia has always been considered by 
our wisest men to be the best defense of a 
Republic." " For it uniformly embraced all 
able-bodied men between 18 and 45 years." 
" Originally, when fire-arms were scarce and 
expensive, only about one-third were permitted 
to arm themselves ' with a good pike, well- 
headed corslet, head-piece and sword,' and 
youth between 10 and 16 were requested by 
Legislature in 1645, to exercise with small 
guns, half-pikes, bows and arrows on training 
days."

These days before the Provincial Charter 
were six, after that, four days. 

Col. Brewer^ was appointed postmaster 1 1 
Oct., 1800, and held the ofifice until his death, 
nearly twenty-five years later. The desk he 
had in the office was used by his successor, 
Capt. Daniel Shedd, for many years. 

During the family's absence from Maine 
certain parties had bought of Massachusetts 
the whole of what was ancient Orrington, 
now Orrington, Brewer and Holden. The 
settlers knew nothing of the sale by which 
they were sold out. 

They deputed Col. John^ Brewer and Simeon 
Fowler, Esq., to go before the General Court 
and protest, and they did the business so well 
that the grantees surrendered their deed and 
allowed the court to convey to Brewer and 
Fowler 10,864 acres in 1784 for ^3,000 in 
joint notes. 

Orrington, the fifty-third town in the state, 
was named for Orangetown, Maryland, but by 
a mistake in spelling in the act of incorpora- 
tion, it became Orrington 21 March, 1788. 

Brewer was the one hundred and ninety- 
first town in Maine, and the name was in com- 
pliment to Col. John'^ Brewer, one of the first 
settlers from Worcester, at first called New 
Worcester or Plantation No. 9, later Orrington, 
until set off as a separate town 22 March, 
1 8 12. In 1 8 16 there were 86 dwelling-houses. 
It is now under city government. 

The first church was founded 9 Sept.,

1800. Six men and six women met with a 
deacon in a dwelling-house, and made prelim- 
inary plans for a church. Although religious 
privileges were enjoyed previous to 1786, the 
church was not built until 1800. Rev. Daniel 
Little doing some missionary work, he was 
ordained 10 Sept., 1786, and it was voted to 
build a church, but it was not built. When 
it was built "naturally the men who were able 
to advance money for land were the ones who 
would found churches and furnish the money 
to pay for them. Those were the days of Col. 
John' Brewer, Col. Eddy and others." 

Rev. James Boyd commenced preaching 
in 1800, and a church was organized and first 
known as the Orrington Church. He was 
ordained 9 Sept., 1800. 

" What Plymouth Church was to New Eng- 
land this church was to the Penobscot valley." 
The members were scattered, living in 
what is now Brewer, Eddington, Holden and 
Orrington. In 1800 there were nine houses 
in the vicinity.
