Brewer of Gloucestershire, England, late 15th Century on the YFull Experimental YTree Defined by SNP Y15575 as of June 6, 2015, subject to change [id:YF03562]
Ambrose Brewer (c.1753-1855), of Moore Co., NC and Hawkins Co., TN, branch on the YFull Experimental YTree Defined by SNP R-DF13 as of July 10, 2015, subject to change [id:YF03733 (BREWER)]. Update December 11, 2015: Re-defined as R-Y18435 with the addition of new test results [id:YF04442 SMITH].
