Therefore, William adopted a family member, probably a daughter of Harry, son of George, or he was hiding the fact that he had an illegitimate daughter & Alice was actually William's daughter (and also probably Maria's)!! Other: Both Thomas Breretons of Harthill emigrated to South Australia Representative of: In 1862, Thomas and Elizabeth Lea were witness to the marriage of Edward Brereton and Frances Hopley Relative of: Shared DNA match Relative of: Shared DNA match Relative of: Shared DNA match 1803 - 1872 Thomas Brereton 68 68 22 Jan 1827, Thomas Broughton (Brereton), Blacksmith married Martha Hughes.

From census records it appears that Thomas didn't have his own farms.  His sons George and Edward worked for his brother William nearby in Broxton.

In 1841, Thomas and Martha are farming at Bronington, with all children present except for John who was helping at his grandparents.

"The Australian Brereton book describes Thomas Brereton  as "of Brown Knowl", which is where he is recorded in 1851.

Samuel Hughes.Martha's brother set off for Australia with  Thomas's three sons John, George & William Brereton. From there it goes from William & Sarah then to Ernest & Annie and then to Don & Ruby then Don & Val and to Richard's siblings brother Don and sisters Debbie and Shelley who all have children.  (Extracted from the www).
Some of this information, believed to originate from a book are incorrect.  Thomas and Martha's sons William and John came to Australia in 1852 and their other sons George and Thomas arrived in 1858.

Thomas and Martha, married in Chester in 1827, but the name is miss-spelt, so the record was difficult to find.

Appears to have stayed in the UK after his father had ded, as father William BRERETON was living with them at Woodend farm till 1866, and was still at the farm in 1871, aged 67.  He probably never went to Australia.

Thomas left £50 advance each to Edward, Jane and Sarah. Later his estate was to be sold and divided equally to all 10 children after his wife Martha died.
1806 - 1884 William Brereton 78 78 Unlike older brothers John and Thomas, William and George did not make a Will.

In 1841, William (30) was still with his parents at Harthill, and with (assumed) son Samule (3 mo)

In 1861, William Brereton (53) and Mary (50) were at Fullers Moor (9 acres), with son Roger (16) and niece Emma Clarke (17).  In 1863 they were still there.  The niece must be on Mary's side of the family.

In 1881, William and Mary Brereton (74 & 70) were at Dutton Cacca with their son Roger (36, unmarried).  William was a retired farmer and local Methodist preacher.
1838 - 1914 Elizabeth Brereton 76 76 Elizabeth, daughter-in-law, aged 23 was recorded as living with William in 1861.  Was this her?

Her father was Thomas Brereton.
1806 - 1879 Martha Hughes 73 73 Martha had a brother Samuel, about 5 years older. 1830 - 1880 Mary Brereton 50 50 30 Oct 1852, Samuel Hughes (26) son of George married Mary Brereton (23) dau of Thomas Brereton at St John, Chester. There are no Cheshire births recorded as they emigrated to Australia as soon as they were married.

Soon after Mary and Samuel married, they emigrated to Australia.  Harriett was born there in 1855, and George and Annie Hughes both died as infants in 1862 and 1868.
1844 - 1926 Jane Brereton 81 81 In 1851, Jane Brereton (6, born Harthill) was with her parents Thomas and Martha.

In 1852, another Jane Brereton, aged 7 died.  This is a perfect age match, but must be the other Jane (MMN=AGAR) born the same year in Liverpool.

In 1861, Jane Brereton (16, born Harthill) was Living at Tattenhall with parents Thomas and Martha at her grandfathers home (William Brereton).

Mrs Darlington (sister) attended her brother John's funeral in 1896

Samuel (62), wife Ellen (57) and son Thomas (23) were recorded on the 1910 US census, farming at Trappe, Wicomico, Maryland.

Samuel moved to Florida to live with his daughter Jessie
1840 Sarah Brereton In 1861, Sarah (20) is with her parents and graddfather William Brereton (86) at the 100 acre Woodend Farm.

In 1880, Thomas and SArah Poole (50 & 40) were living at Parker, Morris, Kansas, USA with their daughter Jessie (1).

In 1910, Martha Jane Brereton (47) and Sarah Ann Brereton (62, Nurse) sailed to NY on the Carmania.  This may be Sarah and her niece Jane.

THOMAS BRERETON:  HOWELL TOWNSHIP - Thomas Brereton, 73, of Yellow Brook Rd., died yesterday at his home.  Survivers are his wife, Mrs Elizabeth W Brereton; a son Thomas J. of Freehold, and two sisters Mrs Jessie Mebille and Mrs Minnie Shunton, both of Hendersonville, N.C.
1872 - 1940 Evan Brereton 67 67 1898, Even Brereton married Louisa Fleet at Birkenhead.  There are no UK births, and they were stillin Birkenhead in 1911. 1879 - 1971 Jessie Brereton 92 92 In 1891, Minnia and Jessie (15 & 13) were working at servants at Bickley Hall, Eddisbury, Whitchurch 1875 - 1962 Minnie Brereton 86 86 In 1891, Minnia and Jessie (15 & 13) were working at servants at Bickley Hall, Eddisbury, Whitchurch 1868 John Darlington In 1939, John (and Rosa) was a retired farmer at Morley Hall, Little Barrow 1832 - 1913 William Brereton 81 81 Recorded as a servant of William and Mary in 1851.

William (aged 19) and his older brother John emigrated to Australia in Aug 1852 arriving in Port Philip Bay on the Lady Head,.  Their other brothers arrived in 1858.  Times couldn't have been that great there as their younget brother Samuel later, who would have hardly known his older brothers, went to the USA instead of Australia.

Although William and Maria married in 1884, they were living together in 1872.  DNA tests suggest Alice Maude is probably Williams daughter, but not Maria's.

John was involved with the Salvation Army.  He was married by a Salvation Army Chaplin, and his headstone reads "Erected by the Salvation Army and his daughter".
1834 - 1907 Maria Clarke 73 73 Maria joined the Salvation Army (Australian) in 1863 after her second husband died.

23 Nov 1903, Alice Maud Mary Brereton (22) married  James Alexander Marion at the Salvation Army Barracks, Daylesford.  Alice was from Pascoe Vale (West Coburg), born at Kynton.

Her father's Will shows that "Alice Maud Mary Marion" was the adopted daughter of William Brereton. However, DNA evidence suggests that Alice is a blood relative of her adoption father William, probably his son Harry.  She is probably Williams illegitimate daughter, or else a niece.  Why else would he adopt a child as a single man!

Between 1904 and 1901, Alice had four children; Grace, Muriel, Flor and Herbert
1838 - 1920 John Walter DeGruchy 82 82 John Walter DeGruchy was baptised in 1838, the son of Philippe DeGruchy and Marie Magdelaine Renaut.  There is another John W DeGruchy born the same year, but he was John William, son of John a farmer and Hannah.
