Generation One

1. RICHARD1 BOOTH was born in 1607, and died between 15 March 1688 and 31 Dec. 4095 in Stratford, Fairfield Co., Connecticut, United States. He married about 1640, (UK-4) ELIZABETH HAWLEY, daughter of (UK-1) Samuel, (Judge), who was born about 1607 in Parwich, Derbyshire, England, United Kingdom.
In a list without date, but certainly before 1651, of every man's fence in the old field, Richard BOOTH is set down for eight rods. His home lot, numbered 29, was on the present Main Street, between those of Joshua Judson and Adam Hurd and directly across the street from that of Isaac Nichols, Sr. In 1662 he signed a document as Townsman, or as later called, Selectman. His name is in the list of inhabitants drawn up for Connecticut Colony, dated 28 MAR 1668. He was one of those who received land by 1670 in the section known as Nichols' Farms, where one branch of his descendants lived for several generations.[22]
Donald Lines Jacobus wrote: "The Booth chart compiled by George Munson Booth of Chicago, Ill., states that Richard was bapt. at Great Budsworth, co. Cheshire, Eng., Aug. 1608, a son of Edward (d. 1628), who was a son of William of Twemlow, co. Cheshire (by his wife Ellen, dau. of John Davenport of Davenport), who was a son of Edward of Twenlow, who was a son of Sir William Booth of Dunham Massie, co. Cheshire (d. 1519). The earlier generations of this pedigree are authentic, but I know not the authority for the connection of this line with Richard of Stratford."[7]
"It was somewhat natural, in the early days of genealogical study, to try to connect Richard Booth with the well-known family of that name in Cheshire, but his origin is as much a matter of speculation today as it ever ws. His brother-in-law, Joseph Hawley was from Parwick, Derbyshire, and an origin in that county has recently been discovered for William Beardsley who came to New England in 1635 and was an original settler in Stratford in 1639. Hence we are more inclined to believe that Richard Booth was a member of the Derbyshire contingent than that he came from Cheshire. Certainly the Booth surname is frequently and prominently found in the records of County Derby."[18]
