Hi Bruce

My Name is Anne Muscat and I live in North Queensland, Australia.

My great-great-great grandmother was Anna Dorothea Brereton from Ireland . I believe her father to be John Brereton and her mother Ann Hackett. I don't have any other details on her immediate family. Anna married my ggg grandfather Arthur Christopher Robinson in Kings Co., Ireland on 25 April, 1848. AC Robinson was born in Parsonstown Ireland as far as I know.

Anna and her husband emigrated from Liverpool to the USA in 1849 and settled in Manitowoc County, Wisconsin where they bore and raised 7 children (two died whilst in USA) - my gg grandfather was Arthur John Brereton Robinson. Anna and Arthur travelled to USA with Arthur's parents and siblings - all of whom remained in USA. Anna and Arthur C then emigrated to Australia in 1862 via Plymouth, England and remained in Australia for the remainder of their lives - one more child was born in 1863 however he did not survive and Anna died shortly after.

My maiden name was Robinson however the Brereton name has been carried on in the family as a middle name for quite some time. I would welcome any contact from of any of my Brereton relations from throughout the world so feel free to display my email

Many thanks
Anne Muscat
