Letter from Sheran (30 Sep 00)

Hello, my  name is Sheran Ellis, and I attended Brereton Hall School 1953 (I was 3 years old)
I didn't stay for more than a couple of years and teh last school I attended in the area was Lawton Hall School.

My memeories of Brereton Hall and the Bears Head too, are very vague. I remember we had to go down into what we called the dungeons where the girls toilets and changing rooms were. The classrooms were huge - or at least seamed so to me! I remeber singing 'Morning has broken...' a song I have rarely sung but never forgotten from those days .

As for Lawton Hall, it was while I was looking up this school I came across this page. My memories are obviously much better of this beautifull old hall with the hauntings of Lady Grey. The garden parties held on the back lawns in front of the lake, the cross country running in the surrounding woods, the art lessons in the 'barn' ajoining the school. Maybe a lettter page could be posted for this now very sad building. If you decide to I can scan some old photos for you (only a vouple that would do, as at that time I was more interested in the people at the school than the building itself!)

Thank you

Update (11 Oct): Sherry's photos are now available in the history section.

Brereton Castle (Hall) (8 Jul 00)

My Grandfather is a Brereton and had some sketches of the Hall dating (I believe) from the early 1800's. My Aunt has some information on it as well. What I don't have is their direct connection in lineage. Is there a way to find out?

Letter from Bret Hall (22 Jan 00)

I am Brereton Hall.
My grandmother, Winifred Brereton (1890-1989), married Harold Hall in 1920, and the results is that both my father and I are both "Brereton Hall." Our side of the Brereton family left England in the 17th Century for America.
With the passing of time we consider ourselves "New Englanders" -- both living in Connecticut.

Breretons of America (8 Aug 98)

My name is Deanne Leigh Brereton. First let me tell you about my first name. De comes from De Brereton and Anne is from my mothers middle name. I am 15 and live in San Jose, CA in the United States. I have always dreamed of traveling to England to visit the Town of Brereton, Church of Brereton and the Brereton Hall. I also have always wanted to meet all the other Breretons` still living in Great Britain. If you can send any information about tour days in Brereton Hall, that would be most helpful in planning a trip to England.

Thank You Much:
Deanne Brereton
