Biography

Alice Brewster was born on 16 September 1871 in Greenwich, London, England. Her father was John William Tyler. On 10 July 1902, she married Adolph Brewster – an Australian who worked as a colonial administrator in Fiji – while he was on a visit to England. After he retired in 1910, the couple moved back to England. They remained married until Adolph's death in 1937.

Brewster became the oldest living person in Europe following the death of fellow Brit, 112 year-old Jeanetta Thomas, on 5 January 1982. Brewster died in Bath, Somerset, England on 9 October 1982 at the age of 111 years, 23 days. Following her death, Anna Eliza Williams became the UK's oldest living person and Petronella Ribbens-Verstallen became Europe's oldest living person.
