The Breretons of Bedford

This history begins with Rev. John Brereton (circa 1642 to 1705) who married Elizabeth Lockwood. John’s descendants seriously investigated a claim to the Barony of Brereton, believing that he was a son of the second Lord Brereton and Elizabeth Goring but was intentionally left out of Omerod’s work.

While I had a significant amount of information regarding this family, it was an email from Robert Wright (a Canadian descendant) and receipt of his extensive family chart that motivated me to  compile this particular Brereton history.
