      "The Booths were descended from a noble family in England, and it is reported that there is still a vacant title to which the oldest Branch in this country is entitled.
      "The first one of this family to emmigrate to this country, was, we have been told, the son of a Baronet in England, and owned a very large estate in what we call the Highlands, then considered superior to the low grounds.
      "They were genuine specimens of good old English Squires, and remarkable for their great integrity of character. Most of the oldest families in Gloucester County, Virginia, were either descended from, or connected with them. In the 'Ancestry of William Clopton of Virginia' is found, 'Robert Booth of Belleville, Gloucester County , Virginia, father of Anne Booth, wife of William Clopton, Gent.'
      "In 1637 Robert Booth bought land; 1639 - was made Clerk of York County; 1652 - was Justice; 1653-54, was member of the House of Burgesses; 1654, member of Assembly from York; and he was a physician.

      Robert Booth and his son-in-law, Patrick Napier, were among the first doctors in colonial Virginia. Robert also served as the Clerk of York County, Virginia and then in the House of Burgesses



      Robert Booth of "Belle Ville," Gloucester County, Virginia, was a physician (Robert Booth the Dr. was not a doctor per Sonia a professional researcher (not for me, found the reference) she said that he was the county clerk and attended at a death and that is where the Dr. assumption came in, county clerks were paid to attend at deaths for the legal purposes, i.e. wills etc......... . He served as Clerk of York County, Virginia, from 1640 to 1657 and represented York County in the House of Burgesses, 1653 and 1654. In 1657 he died leaving a widow Frances (born 1609 according to her deposition 1668). Robert Booth's Library, valued at 14 pounds sterling contained not less than 300 volumes, we are told in Brun's Constitutional History of Virginia. Colonial records show that Mr. Booth left at his death 23 thousand brick, valued at 184 shillings. Brick was manufactured either by a planter's own slaves on the premises, or by transient labor in those days. Land conveyances from and to Robert 'Bouth' dated, 1639; 1642; 1649, 1652; 1653; Charles County Patent Records (later York County), show that he was possessed of extensive tracts.

      Robert Booth
      B. 1605, England. Emigrated with his father, Thomas Booth from Lancashire, England to Gloucester Co., VA around 1630. Left 450 acres to Robert Booth in York Co.
      Married Francis in 1632 in York Co. We are told he was Court Clerk for the House of Burgesses.
      Died 1657.

      "Belle Ville was patented by Thomas Curtis in 1649. John Curtis began the house about 1658.

      3. Extracted from Genealogies of Virginia Families from the Tyler Quarterly History and Genealogy Magazine Volume I, Genealogical Pub County, Balto MD, pp. 173-174 "BOOTH OF YORK COUNTY We know of three distinct Booth families in Virginia. There was the Booth family of Gloucester County, from which Gen. William. B. Taliaferro was descended. Then there was a numerous family of the name on the south side of the James, going back to a very early date. The York County Family appears to have no immediate connection with either of these, and has died out in the male line. Robert Booth was clerk of York County from 1640 to 1652. That year (1652)he represented York County in the House of Burgesses, and in 1654 he was again a representative. He died in 1657, leaving a widow Frances , born in 1619, [sic] according to her deposition in 1668. Oct. 25, 1658. An order concerning a debt due Mrs. Frances Booth, widow of Robert Booth, deceased. (York County Records.) They had issue ...

      Another son was probably Humphrey Booth who married Margaret Underwood and had Humphrey Booth, Jr., Grace Booth and Catherine Booth. William Booth was probably another son and married Mrs. Thomas Chapman on 12 August 1657. His wife is listed as Margaret. (The Mecklenburg Signers & Their Neighbors, by Worth S. Ray, page 467-468) William sat on the York County Bench of Justices as early as 1677. His wife was undoubtly Margaret Bray sister to Anne Bray. (William and Mary Quarterly, old Series, by Tyler, Volume I, Booth of York County, p. 174-175) William and Elizabeth had an only child Elizabeth who married Thomas Nutting and had children as listed in William's will page 130, dated 13 May 1692. William's granddaughter Katherine Nutting was the second wife to Capt. Robert Armistead whose first wife was Elizabeth Booth daughter of Robert Booth 2 and Ann Bray. 5. According to a history of the Patrick NAPIER family, Robert Booth received land in Charles River County, later York, in 1638.

      SOURCE: "Gen. of Virginia Families", Vol. IV, P. 26, Booth File "Robert Booth died 1657, leaving widow, Frances and three children -- (1) Elizabeth married Dr. Patrick Napier; (2) Robert married Ann Bray; and (3) Anne m. 1st Thomas Dennett and 2nd William Clopton.... "The records show that George Baskerville married Eliz., a daughter of Hugh Norvell of James City County; and Thomas Dennett, mentioned above as first husband of Ann Booth, had a sister Mary, who married John Baskerville, and they were the parents of George Baskerville, who married Elizabeth Norvell.

      SOURCE: "Family Lines", Harper P. 227-229: "The Booths were descended from a noble family in England, and it is reported that there is still a vacant title to which the oldest Branch in this country is entitled. "The first one of this family to emmigrate to this country, was, we have been told, the son of a Baronet in England, and owned a very large estate in what we call the Highlands, then considered superior to the low grounds.

      Received land in Charles River County (Later York County) in 1638. Gene This is great, just keep it coming!!!!I'll get it done at some point, until then .... by the way Robert Booth the Dr. was not a doctor per Sonia a professional researcher (not for me, found the reference) she said that he was the county clerk and attended at a death and that is where the Dr. assumption came in, county clerks were paid to attend at deaths for the legal purposes, i.e. wills etc......... make sense? it does to me. Sharon ----- Original Message ----- From: 'Gene . Harris' To: 'Sharon' Gene No PDF file was attached.....don't need it, rtf file is fine....can read either......I have spent some time online finding everything I can get my hands on to read files so if I happened to find a great resource like you I could read the files! I also have CD Rom and a burner, and zip drive, and scanner. I'm set up for art work/graphics---Photo Restoration and my painting (am setting up a separate web page for my art that will link to my genealogy page below). The 600 dpi scan of Elliots obituary is great, fits to the page and prints up nice, the 150 dpi is unreadable as too small or pixelated and blurry when enlarged on screen or fit to page to print. (I assume you knew that and that's why you sent the 600 dpi .jpg file with the spread sheet copy which is also nice) I'm hoping to find photos of my line and the places or area they lived in, and the family bible; grandpa Charles Coleman Cox said in a letter c. 1960 that 'there is a family bible.......haven't seen it for about 50 years but know it existed' (he died in Feb of 1964 of cancer). That might put the bible as last seen about the time of his granpa Charles Cocks/Cox death in 1905/06 (will dtd Apr 1905/ filed Sept 1906 Surry County court). Have photos of him and one of one sister, one of his brother in a family Christmas card, I found these in grandmas papers after she died in 1992, and that's as far as the photos go. my snail mail address: Sharon Cox-Pulsipher550 E 300 S Hyrum, UT 84319USA (435) 245-3280e-mail: spulsiph@cache.net

      As you know, I am searching for the maiden name of Frances Booth, wife of Robert Booth (b. 1605 in England, m. about 1632, York County, Virginia, d. sometime before Oct. 26, 1657, York County,Virginia). I have searched the Virginia Library Archives plus other sources, including ships' passenger lists from: http://www.primenet.com/~langford/places/va160.htm

      I have been able to find the following, and am wondering whether anybody has more to add.

      SOURCE: "Gen. of Va. Families", Vol. I, P. 173, Booth File "Robert Booth...died in 1657, leaving widow, Frances, born in 1619, according to her deposition in 1668. "Oct. 25, 1658, an order concerning a debt due Mrs. Frances Booth, widow of Booth, deceased. (York Co. Records) "They had issue: (1) Elizabeth, (Thomas Gibeons deed dated Nov. 15, 1641, giving to her as 'daughter of Robert Booth' 50 acres of land)* (2). Anne, (3) Robert, (4) Eleanor, and probably (5) William." *NOTE: We believe Thomas Gibeons is the father of Frances. His will does not include her by name - but here again, he may have felt he did for her or her child all that was necessary by giving Elizabeth, daughter of Robert Booth 50 acres of land in deed dated Nov. 15, 1641, and didn't include Frances in will??? Thomas Gybson's will of 1562 provides for wife, Elizabeth, and this may be her granddaughter, namesake.

      I searched Thomas Gibeons, and variations of spellings for marriages between 1590 and 1619 and found four such entries with the spouse named "Elizabeth" in the IGI. As I am tracing my matrilineal line back as far as I can for mtDNA studies, I am looking for both Frances's parents.

      The IGI lists the following marriages for "Thomas Gib*": NAME Thomas /GIBBINS/ SEX M PAGE Batch #: M016482, Sheet #: , Source Call #: 0417121 NAME Elizabetha /FARNA/ GIVN Elizabetha SURN FARNA SEX F MARR(IAGE) DATE 30 Sep 1605 PLAC Berkeley, Gloucester, England

      I also downloaded the Virginia Musters for 1623/4 and 1624/5 plus lists of those who had died.and was unable to find a "Thomas Gibeons." To rule out variations on the spellings of his name, I searched as "Gib*" which would pick up anything beginning with the letters, "Gib." There were no Thomases. I also scanned numerous ships' passenger lists from the web site,

      And did not find any gentlemen named Thomas Gibeons and variations of spellings thereof, as well as a Robert Booth or Frances Booth/Gibeons/Gibbons, etc.

      If anybody has something to add, please do so.

      This might interest you. A quote from "Old Virginia Houses." Page 78. " BELLEVILLE, on one of the most beautiful sites on the south side of the North River [Ware Neck], was built on land acquired by John Boswell and John Booth in a grant from the Crown in the 17th century....the two were wholesale tobacco buyers who did an export business between Gloucester and London...Their office...is still standing...." It would not be difficult to contact the current owners of Belleville if you are interested.

      Descendants of Robert Booth
      Estate papers have not been found for Robert Booth (many times referred to as Dr. Robert Booth / Bouth) in York Co, VA records. Therefore the children listed below are those individuals thought to be his descendants by most contemporary researchers. This researcher would very much like to obtain primary source records documenting parentage of children thought to be from the marriage of Robert Booth and Frances (Gibson / Gibeons / Gideon??). Further information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

      ********************
      My ancestor was Ann Booth 1647-1716 m. to William Clopton. Her father was Robert Booth b. 1610, but it is a mystery concerning his actual father. There seems to be a number of contenders. I'm hoping someone has this mystery worked out.

      The issue:

      Robert Booth b. 1610 has multiple contenders for his father. This Dr. Robert Booth is said to have been born in both Virginia and England. He is listed as a qualifying ancestor for the Jamestown Society.

      It seems that his GRANDFATHER is either...
      a. Sir William Booth b. 1541 married to Warburton, or
      b. Sir William Booth (Bothe) b. 1520 married to Davenport

      Concensus seems to be that his mother was "a" Katherine Anderson (b. 1568) daughter of Sir Edmund Anderson.

      Contenders from Sir William Booth b. 1541

      a. Sir George, 1st Baronet, was married to the Katherine Anderson mentioned above but they had not child named Robert and they did not leave England.

      b. Edmund (aka Edward) Booth is said to have been an English lawyer but died without issue. No spouse listed.

      c. Robert Booth (b. 1570) was a soldier said to have died in action in the Netherlands.

      All three were said to have been Robert's (1610) father and all married to "a" Katherine Anderson.

      Contender from Sir William Booth (Bothe) b. 1520

      a. Edward Booth b. 1568 also said to be married to "a" Katherine Anderson. This could be William Booth's son, but it could also be a grandson based on difference of the years involved.

      Issues: I do believe that one of the Sir William's listed above was a grandfather or even great grandfather of Robert Booth (b. 1610), but which one? There are problems with every contender.

      Obviously all these men cannot be married to Katherine Anderson daughter of Sir Edmund Anderson. It is possible there could be another Katherine Anderson, but then her parent's would be unknown at this time. It seems more likely that Robert's mother is unknown.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Genealogies of Virginia Families From Tyler's Quarterly Historical and Genealogical Magazine Vol. 1 Albridgton-Gerlache. Indexed by Judith McGhan. Genealogical Pub. Co., Baltimore; 1981.
      page 173 - 175
      "Booth of York County
      We know of three distinct Booth families in Virginia. There was the Booth family of Gloucester County, from which Gen. William B. Taliaferro was descended. Then there was a numerous family of the name on the south side of the James, going back to a very early date. The York County family appears to have had no immediate connection with either of these, and has died out in the male line.
      Robert Booth was clerk of York County from 1640 to 1652. That year (1652) he represented York County in the House of Burgesses, and in 1654 he was again a representative. He died in 1657, leaving a widow Frances, born in 1619, according to her deposition in 1668.
      Oct 25, 1658. An order concerning a debt due Mrs. Frances Booth, widow of Robert Booth, deceased. (York County Records.)
      They had issue 1. Elizabeth. (Thomas Gibeons dec'd, dated Nov. 15, 1641, giving to her as "daughter of Robert Booth" 50 acres of land.) She married Dr. Patrick Napier, ancestor of the Napier family of New Kent, Goochland and Albemarle. 2. Anne, who according to her tombstone, was born in 1642. She married (1) Thomas Dennett, (2) William Clopton of New Kent. 3. Robert. 4. Eleanor, born 1649, and probably (5) William Booth.
      In the records of the General Court Novemb. 11, 1672, Robert Booth is named as "son and heir of Robert Booth," and was permitted to patent 1,000 acres of land in New Kent Co. granted to his father, Robert Booth, Sr. He married Anne Bray, daughter of Col. James Bray of the Council and Angelica, his wife, one of the "White Aprons", who were placed by Bacon in 1676 upon his earthworks before Jamestown for the protection of his men. Robert Booth died in 1692, and was buried in the chancel of Hampton Parish Church in York County. His widow in 1693 married 2dly. Peter Temple, by whom apparently no issue (as he died in 1694 - Bruton Parish Register). She married 3rdly about 1695 Mungo Inglis, first Grammar Master of William and Mary College.
      It is unfortunate that no will of Robert Booth can be found. But by comparing the depostiion of Thomas BOoth in 1705 (William and Mary College Quarterly, old series, by Tyler, Volume XVI, p. 192) with the reference to Mungo Inglis' "son-in-law" (step-son) on page 183 of the same volume it seems certain that Thomas Booth was his son. A sister undoubtedly was first wife of Captain Robert Armistead, for Thomas Booth, dying without any children, left large legacies in money and real estate to her son Booth Armistead (See Tyler's Quarterly VI, pp. 260-263) which, upon Booth Armistead's premature death in 1727 descended to his brother Capt. Ellyson Armistead. Among the children of the latter, suggestive of descent, were Robert Booth Armistead (whose only daughter Mary Marot Armistead married John Tyler) and James Bray Armistead.
      William Booth was probably another son of Robert Armistead, the clerk. He sat on the York County Bench of Justices as early as 1677. His wife was Margaret and he had a daughter Elizabeth who was second wife of Capt. Robert Armistead, having previously married Capt. William Sheldon. Her children were Booth, Robert and Angelica. No doubt Katherine's Grandmother Margaret was like Anne, the mother of Captain Armistead's first wife, a daughter of Col. James Bray. Apparently two Bray sisters married two Booth brothers, and Captain Robert Armistead married successively the granddaughter and great-granddaughter of Col. James Bray.
      Mungo Inglis was born about 1657 (deposition in York County Records) and died in 1719 (Bruton Parish Register; Perry, Church Historical Papers). His wife Anne Bray died in 1711 (Bruton Register). They had five children - three girls and two boys. All appears to have died early save James, who was clerk of Isle of Wight County from 1724 to 1732, when he died. After the death of Thomas Booth, issueless he became the heir at law of Anne Inglis, formerly Anne Bray.
      He married Anne Marot, daughter of Jean Marot, a French Huguenot who kept ordinary in Williamsburg. Upon his death Anne Marot married James Shields, and upon James Shields' death in 1750 she married on June 11, 1751, Henry Wetherburn, who kept the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg.
      By his marriage with Anne Marot James Inglis had a daughter Judity Bray Inglis, who in 1751 was, under age but in 1753 was married to William Armistead. As the heir of her Grandmother Anne (Inglis) Bray she received that year (1754) a certain half interest in lands devised by Col. David Bray, brother to her said grandmother. (Hening, Statutes at Large, IV, p. 371, VI, p. 412; Bray Family, William and Mary College Quarterly, XIII, pp. 266-270.)

      Descendants of Robert Booth

      Estate papers have not been found for Robert Booth (many times referred to as Dr. Robert Booth / Bouth) in York Co, VA records. Therefore the children listed below are those individuals thought to be his descendants by most contemporary researchers. This researcher would very much like to obtain primary source records documenting parentage of children thought to be from the marriage of Robert Booth and Frances (Gibson / Gibeons / Gideon??). Further information on this family would be greatly appreciated.

      "Booth of York County
      We know of three distinct Booth families in Virginia. There was the Booth family of Gloucester County, from which Gen. William B. Taliaferro was descended. Then there was a numerous family of the name on the south side of the James, going back to a very early date. The York County family appears to have had no immediate connection with either of these, and has died out in the male line. Robert Booth was clerk of York County from 1640 to 1652. That year (1652) he represented York County in the House of Burgesses, and in 1654 he was again a representative. He died in 1657, leaving a widow Frances, born in 1619, according to her deposition in 1668.Oct 25, 1658. An order concerning a debt due Mrs. Frances Booth, widow of Robert Booth, deceased. (York County Records.)They had issue 1. Elizabeth. (Thomas Gibeons dec'd, dated Nov. 15, 1641, giving to her as "daughter of Robert Booth" 50 acres of land.) She married Dr. Patrick Napier, ancestor of the Napier family of New Kent, Goochland and Albemarle. 2. Anne, who according to her tombstone, was born in 1642. She married (1) Thomas Dennett, (2) William Clopton of New Kent. 3. Robert. 4. Eleanor, born 1649, and probably (5) William Booth.In the records of the General Court Novemb. 11, 1672, Robert Booth is named as "son and heir of Robert Booth," and was permitted to patent 1,000 acres of land in New Kent Co. granted to his father, Robert Booth, Sr. He married Anne Bray, daughter of Col. James Bray of the Council and Angelica, his wife, one of the "White Aprons", who were placed by Bacon in 1676 upon his earthworks before Jamestown for the protection of his men. Robert Booth died in 1692, and was buried in the chancel of Hampton Parish Church in York County. His widow in 1693 married 2dly. Peter Temple, by whom apparently no issue (as he died in 1694 - Bruton Parish Register). She married 3rdly about 1695 Mungo Inglis, first Grammar Master of William and Mary College.It is unfortunate that no will of Robert Booth can be found. But by comparing the depostiion of Thomas Booth in 1705 (William and Mary College Quarterly, old series, by Tyler, Volume XVI, p. 192) with the reference to Mungo Inglis' "son-in-law" (step-son) on page 183 of the same volume it seems certain that Thomas Booth was his son. A sister undoubtedly was first wife of Captain Robert Armistead, for Thomas Booth, dying without any children, left large legacies in money and real estate to her son Booth Armistead (See Tyler's Quarterly VI, pp. 260-263) which, upon Booth Armistead's premature death in 1727 descended to his brother Capt. Ellyson Armistead. Among the children of the latter, suggestive of descent, were Robert Booth Armistead (whose only daughter Mary Marot Armistead married John Tyler) and James Bray Armistead.William Booth was probably another son of Robert Armistead, the clerk. He sat on the York County Bench of Justices as early as 1677. His wife was Margaret and he had a daughter Elizabeth who was second wife of Capt. Robert Armistead, having previously married Capt. William Sheldon. Her children were Booth, Robert and Angelica. No doubt Katherine's Grandmother Margaret was like Anne, the mother of Captain Armistead's first wife, a daughter of Col. James Bray. Apparently two Bray sisters married two Booth brothers, and Captain Robert Armistead married successively the granddaughter and great-granddaughter of Col. James Bray.Mungo Inglis was born about 1657 (deposition in York County Records) and died in 1719 (Bruton Parish Register; Perry, Church Historical Papers). His wife Anne Bray died in 1711 (Bruton Register). They had five children - three girls and two boys. All appears to have died early save James, who was clerk of Isle of Wight County from 1724 to 1732, when he died. After the death of Thomas Booth, issueless he became the heir at law of Anne Inglis, formerly Anne Bray.He married Anne Marot, daughter of Jean Marot, a French Huguenot who kept ordinary in Williamsburg. Upon his death Anne Marot married James Shields, and upon James Shields' death in 1750 she married on June 11, 1751, Henry Wetherburn, who kept the Raleigh Tavern in Williamsburg.By his marriage with Anne Marot James Inglis had a daughter Judity Bray Inglis, who in 1751 was, under age but in 1753 was married to William Armistead. As the heir of her Grandmother Anne (Inglis) Bray she received that year (1754) a certain half interest in lands devised by Col. David Bray, brother to her said grandmother.
