George Wareham of Benvill was an agent for the supply of English nuns to convents in Flanders, and in 1626 (or soon after) he was trying to persuade Winifred and Elizabeth Brereton to join a convent.

After Elizabeth became a nun, George Wareham, and his brother John, claimed all her property (worth about 1000 Pounds), saying that she had made it over to them "in consideration of services rendered".
