Richard Booth
Birth: Mar. 5, 1607
Derbyshire, England
Death: 1688
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

He was probably born in Great Budnarth, Cheshire, England on March 5, 1606-1607 to Edward Booth, Jr. and Marsia (surname unknown). He went to Stratford, Fairfield County, Connecticut in 1640 and became one of the earliest settlers. He married Elizabeth Hawley September 10, 1640 and they had eight children including Bethiah Booth who married Joseph (Ensign) Curtis, Sr. The records of Stratford, Connecticut say that he was descended from Charlemagne, Holy Roman Ruler of much of western Europe in the year 800 A. D. Richard Booth prospered in Stratford and has left thousands of descendants in this country.
