No. I don't know George' parents. I don't even have good guesses.

At one tme, we had a great lineage which was accepted by some lineage societies. But there was a problem.

This is what I have in my notes.

Lanier - by Louise Ingersoll gives the following information

Sarah Lanier married about 1705 in Surry County, George Brewer, born Isle of Wight County, the possible son of John Brewer III. The will of George Brewer was dated July 2, 1744, and presented in Court August 2, 1744 by Alice Brewer, his second wife, and his son Howell, executors. His will (Brunswick Co.)names his ten children by Sarah, and speaks of "our young children" by my wife Alice. Sarah Lanier died between 1724 and 1729. Their children were, William, Oliver, Henry, Nathaniel, Sarah, Lanier, George Jr., Nicholas, John, and Howell. [page 378]

On page 385 she says "George Brewer's son Burwell Brewer, by his second wife Alice, was born 1730 Surry Co., VA. and died 1799 Wilkes Co. GA. married Elizabeth Patrick who died 1800. Only known son of George and Alice Brewer.

Mr. Marvin T. Broyhill III calls George Brewer "George Brewer of Brunswick County." He says that in 1723, this George Brewer was living on the lower side of Reedy Branch which was then in Prince George County. Prince George County was formed in 1703 from the lands on the south side of the James River, which had previusly been part of Charles City County, the home of an earlier George Brewer (See George Brewer of Charles City County). In 1732, the southern half of Prince George became Brunswick County. Although Brunswick's records are intact, those of Charles City and Prince George Counties have been almost totally destroyed. This makes it all but impossible to prove the father of George Brewer of Brunswick County."

I am interested in sharing.
