Here's a note from Clay Brewington. He'd like to know about the Bruington name and also about any history we can share from North Carolina British Colony, circa 1700-1800.

My ancestor's surname was spelled various ways since the 1700's. My American Indian ancestor was given the name William Brewington/Bruington/ Brereton circa 1740/50 in VA/NC by a British plantation owner. He was perhaps by the same name? Yes, its true, the variant spellings were in limited circulation in the colonies during circa 1700-1800.

Can you share any North Carolina British Colony, circa 1700-1800, Brereton surname history with me? It was also spelled Bruington and Brewington at times in wills and court records.
