AdminHistoryBrotherton is a parish town in the Wapentake of Barkston-Ash and the liberties of St Peter's and the Honour of Pontefract. The first church to be built on the site was in 1100, the current church is dedicated to St Edward the Confessor. It is interesting to note that it was at Brotherton that Margaret, wife of King Edward I was obliged to stop whilst hunting and on 1 Jun 1300 gave birth to a son who became known as Thomas de Brotherton. An entry in the first register of this collection, reference WDP74/1/1/1, gives a history of Thomas de Brotherton complete with three family trees.
