There was a George Brereton from Birkenhead, aged 30 living in Warrington in 1911 with Mary Hanah Scragg and family, including a Joseph Brereton Scragg, aged 14.  This Mary Hanah Brereton married William George Scragg in 1898, so this is another George Brereton, probably Mary Hanah's brother.

George and Mary are at 78 Haydock St, Newton-in-Makerfield in 1911 (see family picture).  NEWTON-IN-MACKERFIELD is a town, parish and sub-district of Warrington, Lancashire.
1856 - 1940 Ann Brereton 83 83 Ann kept a birthday book of their family birthdays.  This has provided several birth dates in this family tree.

Annie was the only daughter of Esther and was obviously very special to her.  Her mother Esther Brereton left Ann Hale her home (56 Church Street Birkenhead), cloths, jewellery, and more in her Will when she died in 1917.

Ann was witness to brother John's wedding in 1876

26 Nov 1910, "Mrs Hale (cousin)" attended the funeral of Lillian Cross (nee Eddowes), who's death was caused by "accidental burning".

Esther died in 1917 and left a Will, leaving her house and most of her estate to her daughter Anne Hale (see reference for a transcript of the Will).
1858 - 1920 Richard Brereton 61 61 Richard is one of my 2 Great (2X) Grandfather.  He was a publican and a heavy drinker.  He ran the Red Lion at 7 Tunnel Road in  Birkenhead, now pulled down to make way for the Tunnel approach roads.

In 1878 a Richard Brereton (Cheshire) was sentanced 2 months for larceny.  Is this the same person?

Name spelt "Brearton" in 1901 census.

Richard was aged 52 and living in Birkenhead in 1911.  Like his father, he also ran a pub, the Red Lion, Tunnel Road, Birkenhead. 

His mother Esther Brereton left Richard £100 in her will when she died in 1917.  In those days, that was a lot of money!.

However, Mary E is also shown with her mother Louisa Hale. Relative of 1853 - 1914 Thomas Hale 61 61 Family registered as Hall (not Hale) in 1891 Census index.

Thomas's father, David Hale, a joiner, moved to Tranmere, Birkenhead from Bromley, Kent, whilest his brother William moved to Australia in mid 1850s.

The first 4 children's births were registered at Tranmere, and then from 1880, Birkenhead.

His first wife Mary may have died, and Thomas remarried.
1879 - 1962 David (Dave) Richard Hale 83 83 Cant find any Marriage in Cheshire.  He may have married Agnes in Liverpool, but there's a 20y age difference.

David Richard Hale, aged 22, single, and born Birkenhead was an Upholsterer at Colwick, Nottinghamshire in 1901.

In 1939 David (born 20 Mar 79) was an Upholsterer, living at 108 Edgware Steet, Liverpool.  He is with Emily H Hale born 29 Jul 1896-99), so possibly his wife, about 20 years his junior. There were no children present (after 17 years of marriage).

In 1955, David R and Emily A Hale were at 44 Nuttall Street, Edge Hill, Liverpool
1880 - 1956 Thomas (Tom) Hale 76 76 Cant find Tom and Margaret on the 1839 register. 1882 - 1951 John (Jack) Hale 68 68 1887 - 1948 Mary Esther Hale 61 61 1886 - 1957 William (Bill) Hale 71 71 1895 - 1976 Ann (Annie) Hale 80 80 Note: There's another Ann (Elizabeth) Hale, who also married at Birkenhead Methodist Chapel in 1924, but this appears to be another unrelated person! 1885 - 1945 Edward (Ted) Hale 60 60 Edward was staying with Richard and Esther in 1891, but name recorded as Hall, not Hale.

Ted lost one of his hands in the first world war.  However, the house he lived in until his death in about 1946 or 47 had a garden of about 1/3 of an acre.  How he managed to look after it, was simply amazing.

When he died, his estate was left to his younger sister Agnes, indicating he had no children
1883 - 1961 Lillian (Lily) Preece 77 77 Sisters Lillian and Alice Preece married two Hale brothers, George and John (aka Jack).

Alice Maria Preece (George's sister-in-law) was staying with them in 1911.

In 1939, Florrie lived at Balme, Thornton Road, Bebington.
1890 - 1951 Agnes (Aggie) Hale 60 60 Mum rembers meeting Aggie when she was out once with Aunt Margaret, down by Birkenhead Park (when mum was about 7 to 9 and living in Birkenhead).

Agnes doesn't appear to have been living at home in 1911.  She was staying with a Robert Hale (b.1871), perhaps a cousin or uncle, also living in Birkenhead.

Her grandmother Esther Brereton left Agnes £200 in her will when she died in 1917.

In 1939, Agnes (56, Wid) was with her mother Ann at 56 Church Street, Burkenhead.
1887 - 1918 Edith Price 31 31 1911 - 1938 Edward Hale 27 27 There is no infant death record for Edward, so perhams he was adopted when Edith died. Edward left his estate to his sister Agnes, with is strange if he had a surviving son!  Edward died aged 27 in 1938. 1863 Mary Batho This could be the Mary Batho that George Brereton married in 1885.  However, this Mary was still at home in 1891, single and a dressmaker, aged 27.

Mary married John Brockelbank at Lower Tranmere, St Luke in Mar 1892. (Wirral, BK13/1/57)

In 1937 and 1938 they were at 240a Malvern Court, South Harrow.

In 1940, '42, '44 and '46 Roland R. Yates-Hall (not Yates-Hale) was in the Thom's Directory at Riverside, Rosemount, DunDurum, Ireland (but may not be the same person).

Like many of the family, John W Hale was also a joiner.
1850 - 1894 George Richard Hale 44 44 George Richard Hale married Annie Davies 21 Nov 1869 at Wallasey, Cheshire.

He died in Birkenhead in 1891, aged 44 (recorded as 47)

When Hannah (25) marries James Edward Thorndike (age 42) from Massachetuas on 10 Oct 1883 in Toxteth, Liverpool, she describes her father John as a Merchant, not a Cigar Maker.

After Hannah was married, she lived in England for about 7  years (where Mary, Robert and Franklyn were born) before emigrating about 1891 (before the April UK census) to Bayonne, Hudson, NJ, USA.
1860 Mary Eleanor Hale 1854 Robert Hale 1865 Frederick William Hale 1804 John Hale John's son was also John, a Cigar Maker (also Robert), so quite a family of tobacconists.

Missing (away) from 1841 census, but still alive in 1851, a tobcaaonist in Liverpool..
