James John BREWER, Suffolk, ENG
Posted by: Ross Ellery (ID *****0958) Date: June 03, 2005 at 23:16:46
  of 8985

My g-g-grandfather was James.J.BREWER.He was a saddler and went to sea c. 1871 (possibly to America). His son, John James BREWER was born in Beccles, Suffolk, ENG in 1855. I do not know his mother's name, but she evidently died c. 1869
John had 3 brothers and was enrolled on the training ship, "Chichester" for homeless boys in 1872.From there he worked on the ship 'Floral Star' and later settled in South Australia.
Any BREWERS in Suffolk descended from this family?
