Information from Kenneth Brereton:
Hello. My name is Kenneth Brereton. I was born in Liverpool England in 1937 and currenhtly live in Swindon Wiltshire England. I would be grateful if could post the following message on your Brereton website. Thank you.
I am trying to trace the last known whereabouts of my paternnal grandfather Samuel Brereton. He was born in Egremont Cumbria England in 1881 and married Edith Ella (Ellen) Browell in Liverpool in 1905. Two of his siblings Wiiliam b1875 and Sarah b1877 were born in Illinois USA before the family returned to the UK and settled in Egremont Cumbria. Samuel's other siblings were Esther b 1872 in Tunstall Staffordshire England and James b1883, George b1886, Daniel b1888, Alfred b1893 and Martha Ann b1895; all born in Egremont CXumbria England.
Samuel Brereton abandoned his wife Edith Ella (Ellen) and two (possibly three) children and emigrated to the USA sometime after 1912.
If anybody has any information about my grandfatrher Samuel Brereton I would be pleased to hear from them. Ken. email:
