- A note from Helen Williams (from Australia): Although the Breretons 'started' in Brereton, as the family grew and the men married heiresses, they acquired other lands, including Malpas and Shocklach (both in Cheshire), Blymhill and Ipstones (both in Staffordshire), and large tracts of land in Lincolnshire, Yorkshire and Ireland. They also held land in Cheshire and Staffordshire (these were the ones who didn't marry heiresses).
