Season's Greetings to all you Bretherton researchers. I hope your individual research endeavours are going well with not too many brick walls?!
I've an unwanted marriage certificate for a William Bretherton (engine driver) and Mary O'Connor, 1891, Aigburth, Liverpool if anyone is interested?
Keep trying the Free BMD site - the Brethertons being listed increase monthly. I've already located several GRO references for ancestors thanks to the dedication of the volunteer transcribers.
For anyone with a connection to Bartholomew Bretherton, coach proprietor and owner of Loyola Hall, Rainhill, I've discovered a site refering to his riding a winning horse (Jerry) at the Grand National. Again, contact me for more info.
I've also come across a useful FREE site which includes summaries of Quarter Sessions etc for English counties. It can be searched by surname and record type. Great for discovering court appearances, bastardy bonds, removal orders etc.
Best wishes for your continued ancestor hunting,
