Re: [BREWSTER FAMILY
In Response To: Re: [BREWSTER FAMILY ()
Wow!! I just came across this thread for the first time. My paternal grandfather -- after whom my father and I were named, I'm the 3rd -- was from Barbados. My mother's mother was also from Barbados ( her surname was Callendar). Years ago, I had taken my mother back to Barbados -- while my parents and I were all born in NYC, my mother spent formative years in Barbados and St.John, USVI -- and I remember looking in a phone book while there and seeing a lot of Brewsters listed. My grandparents have all since passed away and my mother has been living in St.Thomas over 30 years. I had grown up thinking the name Brewster was English but in recent years I've been advised it's actually Scottish in origin. In any case, I'm currently living in South Florida and I imagine there's a diaspora of Brewsters throughout the US, UK and the Caribbean.
