WELCOME to our study of the surname BREWIS (without the FISH)
The PURPOSE for doing it is to share my research in the hope that it will allow others to find their ancestors, and by sharing their ancestral information with me, to thus add another twig to the BREWIS tree. If this leads to enough people being found to start a ONE NAME STUDY SOCIETY so much the better.
The BREWIS name originated in Northumberland, England in the 16th Century.
The database includes people principally from the United Kingdom, but also United States of America, Australia, New Zealand, and Canada and South Africa. This web site will evolve as time and expertise allow.
Acknowledgment. This data on this site includes collective research and work of many people, without whom it would not be possible. Some of the people such as Maxwell Wood, and other indexers, are now dead, but their work lives on and is used by many grateful people. Other are still living and very actively pursuing the search for their ancestors. Why not join us?
Please Note: I do not offer any guarantee about the information on this site or the relationships indicated. Most of the research I have done myself, and for my own ancestors I have sighted the documentary evidence, some is collated from published indexes, and some has been contributed by other people.
Use it as a guide only for your own research.
