I'm looking for the birth and/or marriage details of Johnathon Brereton, born in Lanashire in 1660 and married Mary Aspinwall. I haven't so far been able to find the parents of Johnathon

I've seen some trees with his father as Ralph Brereton 1630 I don't know how accurate they are. I couldn't see any sources. They might be just copying each other. And no name for the mother.
These were the children of Ralph?
Abigail Brereton 1626 Marie Brereton 1628
Samuel Brereton 1634 Jonathan Brereton 1660 1690

I've given this a bit of thought and I'm wondering about the long gap between Samuel and Jonathon. Was there a second marriage or perhaps Samuel was actually the father of Jonathon.

Hello Jill, It's a huge gap, the mother would have been too old. 35 years between the 1st and last. And look at Ralph! with a birthdate of 1630! Unbelievable how people just add and don't really look. Jan

I think it's more likely that Abigail 1626, Marie 1628, Ralph 1630 and Samuel 1634 were syblings. and Jonathan was the next generation.

Yes, that's exactly what I thought too. Samuel was probably Jonathons father.

I can't find any marriage details for Jonathan and Mary (Maria)Aspinwall, what I've found is a Marriage between Jonathan Brereton 22.12.1650 Warrington, Married Mary (Maria) Sandford (Sandforde) b. 1661 on 24.3.1683 Cheshire, they had a Son Sandford 1685-1722, Jonathan died 24.6.1690. I've seen Mary Aspinwall on someone else's Tree, but I can't find her????
