Here's a note from Joan in Ontario, Canada. If you have any input feel free to contact her at:

It is interesting that your genealogy matches up with some of my names as well. My Brereton line goes through Canada and I have a Henry Arthur and a Thomas.

Here's my summary:
Henry Arthur Brereton, 1883, Ontario, Canada
   Henry Arthur Brereton, 1860, Vermont, USA
      Thomas Brereton, abt 1839, Montreal, Canada
         Arthur Brereton, 1791, Ireland
            Henry Brereton, ____, Ireland

It would be interesting if we could find a connection.

Hi Bruce

I was on your website and realized my email requesting information on the Brereton family has a wrong location.
Maybe you could post this email for me and I will give a little more info on who I am looking for.

Looking for any information on:
Thomas Arthur Brereton
Born: abt 1840

Married: Anne Minson on July 16th, 1862 at All Saints Mile End New Town, Parish of Stepney, County of Middlesex, England
On the marriage license it shows his father was Henry Brereton, Clergyman (have copy of marriage record)
Anne Minson’s father was Joseph Dines Minson


Anne born abt 1863 London, England
John Arthur born abt 1867 Swindon, Wiltshire, England
Fanny Elizabeth born abt 1869 Swindon, Wiltshire, England (have copy of death record in Ontario, Canada)
Catherine Hannah Sophia born 27 Jan 1872 Stoke Newington, County of Middlesex, England (have copy of birth record)
Thomas born abt 1874 Acton, Middlesex, England
Francis (or Frank) born abt 1876 Acton, Middlesex, England

Died: 8 Feb 1876 – High Street, Acton, Middlesex, England (have copy of death record)

I know his wife Anne (Minson) Brereton (also Annie) remarried after his death to a George Miles and they came to Canada arriving 9 Jun 1883 heading for Toronto, Ontario. They came with the following children: Fanny Elizabeth, Catherine, Thomas & Frank Brereton plus their children George, Mary & Ada Miles.
Anne and John Arthur must have stayed in England.

Anybody with any of the names above please contact me. Thanks.

Joan (from Ontario, Canada)
