I am not sure if theBrewer or Brouwer family which I am researching has any connection to Sri Lanka or Ceylon or if anyone with that surname was ever in Ceylon, however I am aware that many persons of Dutch ancestry came to Ceylon (Sri Lanka) and settled there and lived there for many years. I am interested in learning about anyone whose surname was Brewer or Brouwer, of Dutch origin, who may have come to Sri Lanka (Ceylon) from the Netherlands in times past, settled, and lived on the island. I am also interested in any descendants of the Breweror Brouwer family who may still live in Sri Lanka,even if of European, Burgher, Indian ,British, Portuguese, Sinhalese, or Tamil, origins, etc. If anyone has info. about the Brewer or Brouwer family,and any connections to Sri Lanka (Ceylon), please contact me by e-mail at HODGEJK@HOTMAIL>COM. Thank you.
