The Town of New Marlborough is in Berkshire County, Massachusetts. Berkshire County is the western most county in the state and it borders the states of New York, Vermont and Connecticut. A number of BREWER families are found there beginning in the mid 1700s and through the 1800s. Most are descended from the New England Brewer families that originated in the eastern, coastal region of the state. Hastings Brewer, however, is one who was born in England, came to Connecticut and then settled at New Marlborough. His brother Samuel Brewer was residing at Staten Island, New York when he wrote his will.
Vital statistics at New Marlborough were recorded by the Town Registrar. The books have been filmed by the Genealogical Society of Utah and are available on microfilm (#0250275). As of this posting they are not found on the Family Search website. The records, including images, are available at the AmericanAncestors.org website.

Extracts of BREWERs found in the birth, marriage and deaths are now available online. Researchers should use the extracts as a starting point and should always seek out the original to confirm accuracy.
