  • Sir Randle IV., of Malpas. also, built the Brereton chapel, or chantry, at the south side of Malpas church, in 1522. He and his wife Eleanor were buried in this chapel, and their tomb still exists. The Shocklach manor lies west of Malpas. It was purchased by Sir Randle Brereton V., of Malpas, in 1572, from Sir Richard Corbet. Malpas and Shocklach, at the time of the conquest, formed portions of the Barony of Malpas, of which Robert Fitz-Hugh was baron. He received it from Hugh Lupus, first Earl Royal of Chester. .... etc.

  • In the feudal times in order to become a knight it was pre-requisite to be an owner of lands ; hence, the evidence we have of our original ancestor being the original Lord of Brereton. In those days there were two degrees of knighthood, one a Knight Bachelor, or lord of a manor; the other a Knight Banneret, a knight who had distinguished himself in battle before his king or his baron ; as such was Sir Randle Brereton IV., of Malpas. He was so knighted for brilliant bravery at Terouenne, and at Tourney, in France, by Henry VIII. The knight bachelor always carried a penon or pointed flag ; the knight banneret had his penon cut off square by the king.

  • There is very little recorded of this branch of the family. The Herald's Visitation Record of 1663-4 gives the pedigree commencing with Sir Roger Brereton, of Halton, the founder of the family, about 1540, and shows four generations of descent. I think this Sir Roger was the sixth son of Sir Randle Brereton IV., of Malpas, and the younger brother of John Brereton, the founder of the Norfolk branch. His mother was Eleanor, daughter of Sir Piers Dutton, the Lord of Halton and Dutton, in 1500. Sir Piers was descended from Odard, one of the companions in arms of the Conqueror. He (Odard) assumed the name of Dutton upon receiving a grant of that town from Hugh Lupus, first Earl Royal of Chester, the ancestor of Lady Ada's mother. Sir Piers was the great grandson of Sir Thomas Dutton, of Dutton, who was the Governor and Receiver of the Castle of Halton in 1330. Sir Piers was the son of Sir Lawrence Dutton, who married Johanna, daughter of Sir Andrew Brereton, of Brereton, and from whom are descended the present family of Baron Sherbourne, of Sherbourne, Gloucestershire. The Warburton family, of Arley, were also descended from the same Odard. Sir Roger Brereton married Katherine, widow of Edward Fulleshurst and daughter of Sir William Brereton IX., of Brereton, by his second wife, Eleanor, daughter of Sir Randle Brereton III., of Ipstone and Malpas, and the widow of Philip Egerton, of Egerton.
