Adam de Booths
1. William de Booths (a 1275)
  BE1883 (Booth) identifies William's wife as Sibel, daughter of Sir Ralph de Brereton. BE1883 (Brereton), supported by Maddison, identifies her as Sir Ralph's granddaughter being ...

(1) John Booth of Barton (a 1399)
  m1. Joan Trafford (dau of Sir Henry Trafford of Trafford)
  BE1883 shows Joan Trafford as mother of all of John's children apart from Archbishop Laurence. Maddison shows Joan as mother of Robert & Roger but the (unnamed) 2nd wife as mother of the other children, including Thomas. BE1883 identifies Thomas as the eldest son and, given that he appears to have inherited an estate at Barton, this seems likely. Provisionally we follow BE1883.

  m. Catherine Mountford (dau of Robert Mountford or Montfort of Bescote)
  ((1)) Sir William Booth of Dunham Massey (d 09.11.1519)
  BP2009 (Booth) starts with this Sir William and identifies several children as by Margaret Assheton and then reports that there were 7 sons and 3 daughters by Ellen Montgomery, naming only Edward (3rd son). BE1883 provides details on the children of the 2nd marriage but names only George & John as of the 1st marriage.

Provisionally we follow BE1883 in showing them a generation later as, with the exception of Alice (who is identified as a daughter of Sir William), the daughters are all identified as daughters of George in the relevant cross-referring sources.
