Jonathon Brereton of Nantwich

Journal by MJL

Has anyone actually found the baptism record for Jonathon Brereton who married Maria Sandforde in Acton , Nantwich in 1683. I have seen 'Jonathon' on the birth record of Sandford, and I have a burial record of a Jonathon in Wybunbury (near Nantwich) in 1701. Some family trees I have seen have him as dying in Warrington in 1690, though I think this unlikely, especially in view of the Wybunbury death in 1701.
With regard to the baptism record, some people have him down as 'John', son of Richard. Again I think it unlikely that he would be recorded as anything other than Jonathon, particularly as a baby, when he was recorded as Jonathon throughout the rest of his life.
Any help would be much appreciated.

try looking on this site:


Click on England (including the Isle of Man) then Cheshire and then Acton By Nantwich.

JUST PUT IN THE SURNAME click submit. This will list all the Breretons record in the parish. Unfortunately it does not have marriages.

Have you tried the Cheshire Bishop's Transcripts there are a number of locations if you google it.

There is also this site www.familysearch.org
