| Married at Audley, 1386.

Sir William Brereton, of Brereton, married his cousin, Angella (Annilla
or Anylla), daughter of Hugh Venables, Baron of Kinderton, who
died 41st of Edward III, and his wife Agatha, daughter of Sir Ralph
Vernon, Baron of Shipbrooke. This marriage was confirmed by dispensation,
which indulgence states that it was granted in consequence of the
services of his father in the crusade against Henry of Castile, under
Edward, the Black Prince. This William served with great distinction in
the French Wars of Henry V. Chandler, in his Life of Bishop Wainfleet,
speaks of Sir William Brereton, who through his daughter Margery was
grandfather of the founder of Magdalen College. Chandler states Sir
William to have afterwards been Governor of Caen, and to have routed a
numerous army of French near Mont St. Michel, and to have returned
home "with glory and increase of fortune." Sir William died in 4th of
Henry VI, 1425, probably of honourable wounds received at the Battle of
Pontoisan. By his first wife Anylla he had William, Hugh and Matthew
and two daughters, Elizabeth, of whom further, and Margery, wife of
Richard Patten alias Wainfleet. By his 2nd wife, Elena, daughter of Sir
William Massey, he had a son Thomas, rector of Brereton 1433. William
succeeded not only to the Brereton estate, but also in right of his mother
to a share of the Barony of Malpas, which Elena's sister Isabella Delves
had succeeded in wresting from David Malpas, the Bastard. William's
1st wife was related to him in the 4th degree on each side, in consequence
of their mutual descent from Sir Ralph Vernon. This marriage
took place at Audlem in 1386. He held in demesne as of fee one-fourth
and a moiety of a fourth of half the Manor of Malpas, a third of Pickton,
and lands in Wordhull, Crouton, Charleton and Northwick.
