Genealogy of the Booth Family in England and the United States, Walter S. Booth, Minneapolis, Minnesota, 1892. With notes and additions by Richard Booth, Hillsborough, NH, 2009. The manor of Dunham is recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as having belonged to the Saxon thegn Aelfward before the Norman Conquest and to Hamo de Masci after. De Masci was an influential baron, who also had control over the manors of Baguley, Bowdon, Hale, Partington, and Timperley. The addition of "Massey" to the name Dunham reflects the manor's importance within the barony; Dunham was the seat of the Masseys. The importance of Dunham is further emphasised by the presence of two of de Massey’s castles: Dunham Castle and Watch Hill Castle on the border with Bowdon; a third, Ullerwood Castle, was near Hale. The Masseys remained barons of Dunham and its environs until the 14th century, when the line became extinct.[3][4] The Booth family inherited most of the Massey lands in 1409, with Dunham Massey remaining at the heart of the estate; at the time, only four villages were in the Trafford area. By the Elizabeth period, Dunham Massey Castle had been demolished. Probably during the medieval period, Dunham Massey Hall became the home of the manorial lord, and a centre of power in the area. The hall was rebuilt in 1616, leaving no remains of the old medieval hall. The mill at Dunham was first documented in 1353, although the mill's present structure dates to the 1860s. It lies on the River Bollin, opposite Little Bollington. The first record of Dunham's deer park was also in 1353. The settlement of Dunham Woodhouse dates from the 15th century. During the medieval period, the primary source of employment in Dunham Massey was agriculture, mainly arable. Generation No. 1 1. WILLIAM2 DE BOOTHES (ADAM1).

Notes for GEORGE BOOTH: ("OLD SIR GEORGE") "George, born about 1566, was but 12 years old when his father died. He was knighted when of age and succeeded to the estate of his father. He was twice High Sheriff of Cheshire and of Lancashire. Kinghted in 1597, Baronet in 1611, Sheriff, Justice of the peace and Deputy Leiutenant. He was married twice: First at age 12 to Jane Carrington of Carrington. Second wife was Katherine Anderson, daughter of Sir Judge Edmund Anderson of the King's Bench. She died in 1638 He (George) had five sons and seven daughters. William, the eldest son, died before his father, but his (Williams') son George (Grandson of Old Sir George) succeeded him as heir. (NOT SURE WHO "HE/HIS" REFERS TO IN THE FOLLOWING 3 PARAGRAPHS) He was the first Lord Delamere. His son Henry, second Lord Delamere, succeeded to the peerage and became very famous in English history. He was knight of the shire, custos rotulorum, and member of several Parliaments. He favored the Bill of Exclusion, guarding the Protestant succession, for which he was thanked by Lord Russell on the morning of that nobleman's execution. In the latter years of Charles II and after the accession of James II, he was twice committed to the Tower, and, at length, tried under the last named tyrant for high treason, and unanimously acquitted by the court of twenty-seven peers. Afterward he retired to Dunham Massey until the Revolution, where he was one of a committee of three noblemen, appointed by the Prince of Orange, to demand of James that he remove from Whitehall. He was made Privy Counsellor, Chancellor of the Exchequer, and was created Earl of Warrington in 1687. George, his son, (Old Sir George's son?) succeeded him as third Lord Delamere and second Earl of Warrington, but his only issue was Mary, who married Rt. Hon. Henry Grey, Earl of Stamford, and the line became extinct." ********** (Duplication of above?) "George, born in 1557, was the first Lord Delamere, was committed to the Tower; tried for high treason and unanimously acquitted by a court of 27 Peers. He was made Privy Counseller, Chancellor of the Exchequer and was created Earl of Warrington. He had 17 children, one of whom was Richard (baptized, 1578, and died in 1628) the fifth son, from whom the first Booths of America are descended." "His (Whose?

He married ELIZABETH HAWLEY. Notes for RICHARD BOOTH: "Richard [1] Booth, the progenitor of the Booth family of Fairfield County, Conn., emigrated from Cheshire, England, between the years 1630 and 1640, his father, as tradition has it, being Richard the fifth son of Sir William Booth, Knight, who died and was buried at Bowden, Cheshire, September, 1579. Tradition says his two younger brothers emigrated to America with Richard, one of them settling on Long Island and the other elsewhere. Richard being the only one who settled in Connecticut. He married Elizabeth, sister of Captain Joseph Hawley, who was the first town clerk of Stratford, and settled in Stratford in 1640. Richard Booth's name appears often in the town records of his day as "townsman," or selectman, and in other commissions of office and trust. The prefix Mr., before his name, in the colonial records, indicates, under the rigid adjustment of social rank then observed, a position decidedly influential and respectable. His large landed property he divided in his life-time among his children. He left no will. The latest mention of him extant is in March, 1688-9, in his 82nd year. As the Congregational Burial Ground, west of Main Street was opened in 1678, he was doubtless buried there, and as his son Joseph, who outlived him not more than 12 to 15 years, would probably be interred at his side, the spot cannot be distant from the monument lately erected by William A. Booth, Esq., and other descendants of Joseph, over the grave of the latter. Mr. Booth seems to have been twice married, for in 1689 (p. 16, vol. ii., Land Rec.) he speaks of "my now wife," a phrase commonly indicative, as then used, of a second marriage. His first wife, the mother of his children, was Elizabeth, sister of Joseph Hawley, the founder of that name, and the first recorder or town clerk of Stratford. This is another incidental proof of his being among the original proprietors of the town. Their daughter, Elizabeth, was born in 1641. A collateral evidence also of the marriage is the fact that his son Ephraim, in his will, styles Samuel Hawley, son of Joseph, "cousin." Mr. Booth's home lot was in Main Street, on the west side, the fifth in order below the Bridgeport road, and is No. 29, on the map of Stratford. Like the other proprietors, also, he had lands of considerable area in the aggregate, scattered through various parts of the town, where, in the divisions by lot, they chanced to fall. This disconnected state of one's farm lands is characteristic of such property in Stratford, even now. Notes for ELIZABETH HAWLEY: "Elizabeth, sister of Captain Joseph Hawley, who was the first town clerk of Stratford...
