  • And here, before I proceed, it may be proper to note the different manner in which the name of Booth has, in various ages, been wrote, viz. Booth, (as at this time,) Bothe, Both, Bouth, Bouthe, Boothe, as appears by many ancient deeds and evidences belonging to the family, (fome in the poffeffion of the Right honourable the Countefs Dowager of Stamford, and others in the poffeffion of George Booth Tyndale, Efq;) and is common in many families of great antiquity.
  • The firft of this name I meet with, is William, fon of Adam de Booths, in the County Palatine of Lancafter, living 1275,
  • Pg.19
  • 3 Edw. I. He married Sibil, daughter of Sir Ralph de Brereton, in the County Palatine of Chefter, Knt. The Breretons were a very ancient family, feated at Brereton, in the aforefaid county, and continued there in a long fucceffion of heirs males, until the fame became extinct by the death of Francis, Lord Brereton, of the kingdom of Ireland, without iffue, in the year 1721.
  • To this William fucceeded Thomas de Booths, his fon and heir, who had iffue John de Booths, living in the reign of Edward II. (This was Robert, as appears by a copy of an old deed belonging to Barton, entered in a book which George Booth, of Woodford, in Chefhire, had lent him, by Richard Leigh, of High Leigh, in Chefhire, Efq; May, 1688.) He married Agnes, or Anne, daughter and heir of Sir Gilbert de Barton, near Eccles, in Lancafhire, Knt. Here again, feems to be another miftake ; he married not Agnes, or Anne, but her daughter and heir, called Loretta, (if either,) who was of age, and unmarried, 20 Edw. I. as appears by a copy of a deed in the fame book ; for it was not likely that if he had married Agnes, and fhe had no iffue male, the eftate would have continued in the name of the Booths. After all, I rather think that Thomas Booth, called Tomalin of the Booths, was the firft of Barton, and by purchafe, as appears by copies of many deeds in that book, the lands bought of John, fon of Gilbert de Barton, 27 Edw. III. and other deeds by his brothers and fifters, all releafing the firft Gilbert de Barton, whofe daughter and heir was Agnes, who lived 35 Hen. III. and Edw. I. .... etc. ______________________________________
