    William, who married Margaret, daughter and heir of Sir Thomas Assheton, of Ashton-under-Lyne, from whom descended the Earls of Stamford and Warrington, owners of great estates at Ashton-under-Lyne and Dunham Massey. Dunham Park belongs to the family, and Dunham Hall is one of the residences of the present Earl. It will thus be seen that, although the direct male line of the Booths of Barton died out, the name survives in a family notable in the pages of the annals of our English nobility.
    Born of Dunham, Nottinghamshire? [Or Dunham Massey, Cheshire.]
    In 1511 George Booth's son, Sir William Booth, sold his 1/6 share [of somewhere in Wilts] to John FitzJames, later Lord Chief Justice, who used it to endow the grammar school which he helped to found in the Abbey of Bruton, Somerset in 1519. Although it passed to the Crown at the Dissolution, this part of Furnax was regranted to the school at Bruton refounded by Edward VI in 1550.
    In Oct. 1484 his wardship and marriage granted to Master Edmund Chadderton during his minority. (Harl.433 I p.227)
    Over the sinister lady the coat of Fitton, and at her feet four children.
    In Latin were the words: ? Here lies the body of Sir William Booth, knight, who died on 9th Nov., 1519, and Margarete and Helena, wives of the said William; upon whose souls God be merciful. Amen. There was a little monument to two of Sir George Bouthe, Francis and George, who died in infancy.
