BREWIN Family HistoryRecorded in several forms including Brewen, Brewin, Bruan, Brune, the diminutives Brewin and Brewing and the patronymic Brewins, this is an English surname. Dating from the 12th century and the very beginings of surnames, it is probably job-descriptive. If so it derives from the Olde English pre 7th century word "breowan", meaning to brew, and a brewer or sometimes the son of a brewer, and where appropriate the suffix being a short form of "-kin", plus the secondary suffix '-s', itself a shortened version of 'son'.
