About Thomas Brereton, Sr.,

There is debate as whether Thomas Brereton was born in England or in Virginia. There is NO SOURCE documentation to support the location of his birth. Further research is needed!

Thomas Brereton was clerk of the council in 1661, one of the justices of Northumberland county and lieutenantcolonel; he married Jane Claiborne, daughter of Colonel William Claiborne, and died about 1688, leaving issue. The records refer to his ring, with his coat-of-arms upon it; and he appears to have come from the county of Chester, as in 1736 Thomas Brereton, of Shotwick Park, Chester, who seems to have been a descendant, made a deed for land in Northumberland county, Virginia.
