  • There are old tombs of the Brereton family in the churchyard. The one with a canopy shows the effigy of a knight with his lady. It is rare to see a monument of such age outside and these are badly weathered. Raymond Richards notes that it is the tomb of Sir Ralph Brereton but the brochure in the church mentions that is could be the tomb of a Brereton or a Ventables. My photograph below, taken with flash and enhanced digitally allows one to pick out most of the following incripiton, but the beginning of the last work was provided from Ormerod's History of Cheshire, Volume 3 page 33. Note that the letter N is written back-to-front throughout. It translates as "Here lie Radulphus Brereton, knight, and lady Ada his wife one of the daughters of David Earl of Huntingdon. Ormerod gives a family tree of the Breretons of Brereton in which he states "Sir Ralph de Brereton, knight, said in some pedigrees to marry Ada, daughter of David Earl of Huntingdon, relict of Henry Hastings, and living in 1275".

-------------------- Ada was the 3rd daughter of Prince David of Scotland, Earl of Huntingdon and Matilda of Chester. Matilda was approximatey 30 years younger than her husband. It is therefore difficult to determine when Ada was born, except that it had to be before 1219 when David died.

Ada was first married to Henry de Hastings, who died in 1250. The Cheshire historian Ormerod relates that according to ancient pedigrees, Ralph Brereton and Ada were married. A famous, canopied effigy tomb in the churchyard of St. Mary's, Astbury, Cheshire, states that both Ralph and Ada are buried there, side by side. Ralph Brereton was Ada's second, or possibley third, husband. Ada was Ralph's first known wife. There is great controversy surrounding Ada's life,and death dates, as a possible heir, or mother to the heir to the Scottish throne, at a time when the king was engaged with many border disputes with both Scotland and Wales, and was intent on dispossessing Ada and her sisters, which he did. He gave their hereditary lands to his Lusignan cousins,in return for smaller estates, and quickly incorporated them into crown lands. Henry also took her son, Henry de Hastings, and gave him as a ward to another Norman lord, raising him as an Englishman, and reduced his lands and title when he came of age. Henry de Hastings, the heir, lived only 4 years after coming of age. Richardson claims that Ada's death must have happened before 1247, as her lands are being transferred at this point. There is room for doubt, however, as Ada and her sisters, were not under the protections afforded by English law, and Henry III had already said to the four of them, preceding buying the estates in 1246, that the earldoms should be annexed to the crown "lest so fair a dominion should be divided among women". This was contrary and technically illegal according to the Treaty of York. Welsh Medieval records do confirm the marriage of Ada and Ralph, and the birth of their sons, William and Gilbert Brereton; English records conflict with Welsh perhaps because they were less influenced by the king's power. The Brereton, and cadet family pedigrees all show descent from Ada, and this descent is reflected in the arms of the Brereton family.

Lineage Prince David was the youngest surviving son of Henry of Scotland, 3rd Earl of Huntingdon and Ada de Warenne, a daughter of William de Warenne, 2nd Earl of Surrey, and Elizabeth of Vermandois. His paternal grandfather was David I of Scotland. Huntingdon was granted to him after his elder brother William I of Scotland ascended the throne. David's son John succeeded him to the earldom, but died young under mysterious circumstances, making Ada and her sisters the heirs to the Kingdom of Scotland. According to the Treaty of York, Ada and her sisters were not English subjects, and would never be subject to the courts of England. Henry III, in a power struggle, forced Ada and her sisters to relinquish their lands and titles, and made Ada's son, Henry de Hastings "heir".

David of Scotland and Matilda of Chester had seven children: Ada, Margaret (second daughter), Robert (died young), Matilda (youngest daughter), Isobel (oldest daughter), John (died age 30) and Henry (died young). Ada had 2 illegitimate half brothers, Henry of Stirling and Henry of Breching, and one illegitimate half sister, Ada .

After the extinction of the senior line of the Scottish royal house in 1290, when the legitimate line of William the Lion of Scotland ended, David's descendants were the prime candidates for the throne. The two most notable claimants to the throne, Robert Bruce, 5th Lord of Annandale (grandfather of King Robert I of Scotland) and John of Scotland were his descendants through David's daughters Isobel and Margaret, respectively.

"Other features of note include the great west door beneath a stately tower, the spire (rebuilt in 1838 to replace an early English one destroyed by lightning), the massive battlements and the 13th century canopied tomb of Sir Radulph and Lady Ada Brereton. The exterior of the church is decorated with grotesque gargoyles - to keep away evil spirits and devils. The figures also act as outlets for rainwater from the roof." ---The Brereton's of Chesire

Dating of the Tomb: Ralph Brereton's bones were found in the tomb when it was renovated in the 1800's. It is referred as a tomb, and not a memorial, in every source cited here. The tomb is the only one of its kind in Cheshire, and is a Grade II listing. The Brereton coat of arms, including the 2 shields of the house of Scotland, are found in both St. Mary's Astbury and the Brereton Chapel, as well as St Oswald's. Brereton family tradition has it that "the Knight's burial) was originally a chantry chapel inside the church, but was moved outside when the church was extensively remodeled in the 14th century. Gilbert Brereton, Ada and Ralph's son, was a Rector at this church for several years, during the construction of the Knights' tomb.. In 1578, the Warburtons, descendants of the Brereton's, as well as the church rector and other local aristocrats or kinsmen, swore a documents as to who was buried in the Knight's burial, being Ralph and Ada de Huntingdon. The first herald's visitations began in 1580, approving use of arms by Chesire armigers.

From a booklet, published by St. Mary's Church:

"The Brereton Coat of Arms can be found on both the exterior and interior of the church. It is one of a number of coats of arms which decorate the ceiling molding. The Brereton family of Astbury died out before the church was completed in the 14th century.(sic)"

  • What the pamphlet seems to be trying to say is that the Scots Earls of Huntington died out in the male line: John le Scot died childless and left 4 sisters. However Henry III decided that the earldoms should be annexed to the crown "lest so fair a dominion should be divided among women". In 1246, Henry bought the honour (estate) of Chester from John's four sisters.

It would be recreated in 1264 for Simon de Montfort.

Re: St. Mary's Church, Astbury, Chesire There are old tombs of the Brereton family in the churchyard. The one with a canopy shows the effigy of a knight with his lady. It is rare to see a monument of such age outside and these are badly weathered. Raymond Richards notes that it is the tomb of Sir Ralph Brereton but the brochure in the church mentions that is could be the tomb of a Brereton or a Ventables. My photograph below, taken with flash and enhanced digitally allows one to pick out most of the following incripiton, but the beginning of the last work was provided from Ormerod's History of Cheshire, Volume 3 page 33. Note that the letter N is written back-to-front throughout. It translates as "Here lie Radulphus Brereton, knight, and lady Ada his wife one of the daughters of David Earl of Huntingdon. Ormerod gives a family tree of the Breretons of Brereton in which he states "Sir Ralph de Brereton, knight, said in some pedigrees to marry Ada, daughter of David Earl of Huntingdon, (relict of Henry Hastings,) and living in 1275". Notation for this date is in Sources section, as are multiple other original sources regarding the marriage of Ralph and Ada.
