Sir Thomas Booth of Barton, Lancashire (a 1436, 1482)
BE1883 (Booth Delamere of Dunham Massie & Warrington) identifies Sir Thomas's wife as a dau of Sir George Carrington, widow of _ Weever. Maddison identifies her as Isabell, dau of Sir William Carrington of Carrington, widow of _ Wever.

1. Sir John Booth of Barton (d Flodden 09.09.1513)
  Maddison identifies Sir Thomas's heir as another Thomas (and then shows that he had issue without providing any details). BE1883 (Booth Delamere of Dunham Massie & Warrington), supported by VCH (Lancashire, vol 4, Barton), names him Sir John. BE1883 reports that Sir John's male line "ceased with his great-grandson John, who left, at his decease, three daus., co-heiresses". VCH provides the following:
