Wrestling Brewster

BIRTH:  About 1614 in Leiden, Holland.
MARRIAGE:  Did not marry.
DEATH:  Sometime between 1627 and 1644.

Wrestling Brewster was born in Leiden, Holland, to parents William and Mary Brewster. His father William was the Elder of the congregation, and in Leiden was a teacher of English and also published books on religion and theology (most of which were illegally sent into England).

At the age of about 6, he came with his father and mother on the Mayflower to Plymouth. He was alive during the 1627 Division of Cattle at Plymouth, where he is listed in the household of his father William. He is not mentioned again in any other record, and at William Brewster's death in 1644 he is not listed in the will or estate inventory, so he must have died at some time in the interim.
