HOP and 'History of Chester' give a different mother.

HOP is based on Vis. Cheshire which has him as son of Richard and Elizabeth Brereton and grandson of Richard and Elizabeth Dutton.

I see this is discussed on

Though HOP is usually pretty reliable.

Thank you Steve

Main problem with Elizabeth Bereton as his mother was she was only 8 years old when this Hugh was born. Also the Richard married to Elizabeth was only 11 years old.
We know that a Richard Cholmondeley was born around 1511, son of Richard who died in 1518.

We don't have a source (at the moment) for an approximate year of birth for Elizabeth Brereton, daughter of Randell Brereton.
Discussed in Soc Gen Medieval:

Support the claim that Elizabeth Brereton was the wife of Richard Cholmondeley who died in 1518 and they had sons Richard b abt 1511 and Hugh.
Thanks for all the info, it tally's with some of what I have,

Even the visitation to Cheshire are muddled with the family
