Margaret 4/22/2001 - "It seems that we have both been going down the same path! There are lots of mistakes with LDS records and also Ancestry but I have found some good info, too. Do you have any info on George Boothe (son of Thos) and Judith McEwen of Amelia Co? I have been revisiting all the old info that I have dug up in the past couple years. Their children are: William, David, George, Nathaniel, John, Ann, and Elizabeth. The timeframe is about right for your John. It will take a few days but I will get back with you with more detail with what I know abt the Booth's."

Subject: Re: Bedford Co., VA BRYANT-HARRIS-TRENT
hi vicki, we are doing the same thing sifting thru every scrap we can find. My bryants are from Manakintown, huguenots came in 1700. I have lots of info on bryants, uncles, cousins, etc. and have still not solved my ggggf William G. (Guerrant?) Bryant. Name sp: BRYAN, BRIANT, BRIAND. can't find his wife? a William Bryant m. Harris in Fluvanna abt 1780 - don't know if this is my William or not. Clue to Harris: The 14th June, 1741, was born Jesse, reputed son of John Harris and of Elizabet Roberd; had for godfather, John Bernar and Jean Chastain; for godmother, Charlote Judith Chastain. (these are all known Huguenots except for Harris, who might be). > This other William is the son of John Bryant & Elizabeth HAMLET and might be husband of Fluvanna County Marriage Bonds 1777-1801, 1780 Bryant, William + Harris, Mary But William Bryant older than my Wm G. tho they are cousins. so the Fluvanna County Marriage Bonds 1777-1801; 1780 Bryant, William+Harris, Mary marriage could be about another Wm Bryant, even Wm G. Bryant my gf. He is the right age. I do not have a death date or children data for this Wm Bryant b 1741. The deed below could apply to him, and he is in Beford Co. by 1763. > The deed: 5 Aug 1763 - Henry Trent of Amherst County buys from William Bryant of Bedford County for 150 pounds 400 acres north side and adjoining Fluvana River, John's Creek and Richard Tillis. Witness: George Cox, Jr., Micajah Cox, Obediah Henry Trent. Wife of William Bryant examined as to dower rights and wishes 5 Sep 1763, but is not named. {The Deeds of Amherst County, VA, 1761-1807 and Albemarle County, VA, 1748-1763 by Rev. Bailey Fulton Davis, page 95} [Amherst County, VA, Deed Book B, page 113]. Hines shows his wife as Mary Harris. Henry Trent II m. Edith HARRIS, his son Henry Trent III Purchased land where the French refugees were living. He was in land sales/deals, that could explain the Harris connection with the Huguenots. that is all i know about the Trents, some clues might be had from them. Thomas Harris, Sr left a will in Henrico Co rec 6 July 1730 naming sons Thomas, James, John, William, Francis and Benjamin, and daughters Mary James, Sarah Harris, Phebe Harris, Edith Trent [who married Henry Trent, son of Henry Trent 1], Ann Booth, Martha Pasture and wife Mary. There's your BOOTH mentioned. An Ann Montgomery Trent (no parents) m. Geo. Perkins BONDURANT in Buckingham co. VA in 1843. (so the Trents are marrying Huguenots too). i downloaded some geds on BRYANT from ancestry.com and one has my Bryant line in MA in the 1600s; another report in VA Lib. says they were in Charles City, VA before 1700. it does not seem that they were on the ships that arr with the batch from London but were here already and possibly helped with their location and then moved to Manakintown. let me know anything................... josie

Bedford County Marriage Bonds Extracted from the appendix in Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Vol VI, Virginia. (Marriages are NOT Quaker) The format is generally: Date of bond; information on the groom, & information on the bride; Surety; Consent by; Married by and date of marriage return. All this information is not always present Some abbreviations used are: s = son of, dt = daughter of, wd = widowed The "Surety" is a person whose name appears on the bond as equally responsible to pay the bond's penalty amount to the state, if there is discovered some legal reason that the marriage cannot take place Consent information seems to have been provided whenever the consent papers did not specify that the person giving consent was the father or mother of the bride or groom. Perhaps a step-father, uncle, or simply a guardian. Warning: Sureties were usually related, but not always, and even then they were not usually a parent. http://www.rootsweb.com/~vabedfor/bedf-m_c.htm

Floyd County, A History of Its People and Places by Amos D. Wood 1869-1942. page 19 - 21
George Booth The Settler
"George Booth, the first of the family in America, was born in England about the year 1745, the son of an English earl. The tradition in the family is that he was secreted on board a ship and sent to America as a teenage boy to save his life. When still at home, he and some neighbor boys were trying their srength, lifting a stone on the bank of a creek in which they had been bathing. George Booth moved the stone. It was learned later that this stone was a cornerstone to a plot of land. At that time in England it was a capital offense to move a "corner to land." He was often heard to say that he was born with a "silver spoon in his mouth," but it would never do him any good.

He was a man of great energy, often making the trip on horseback from his home on Little River to the old home in the State of New York, bringing back many droves of horses, which he turned out on the "range." He lived in the present county of Floyd many years and is buried on the land he took up.

The names of only three of his children are known. They were: 1. Obediah [this has not been verified]. 2. Isaac. 3. Daniel.

1. Obediah Booth married Clarissa Howard, born about the year 1770, daughter of William Howard of Montgomery County, Virginia, and a sister of Peter Howard of Little River. They were the parents of Delilah Booth [the parents of Delilah Booth were Abijah Booth and Rhoda Howard], who married Thomas W. Simmons, and was the mother of Otey T. Simmons (b. 1818), Matilda (b. 1820), Dr. William B. Simmons, and Roley M. Simmons, the latter the father of a prominent family of children, among whom is Dr. John W. Simmons of Martinsville, Virginia. Mary Simmons, another child of Delilah, married William T. Lester and was the mother of Posey G. Lester, who was a Member of Congress for the years 1889 to 1893, and who is a widely known minister of the Primitive Baptist Church and editor of "Zion's Landmark," a Baptist Church paper.

2. Isaac Booth, another son of George the settler, lived near the present Floyd and Montgomery county line, on Laurel Ridge, and near the mouth of Brush Creek.

3. Daniel Booth, the third son of George, lived on Beaver Creek at a place later known as "Bonsack's Machine," the home and property of David L. Eller.

The Booths were prominent farmers and large landowners, as evidenced by the names of five of the family being among a list (Land Tax Book) of the largest landowners in the county when it was organized in the year 1831. They were George, Abner, Joseph, Daniel and Isaac.

In the Confederate army, four of the names were among the veterans of Stuart's Horse Artillery - they were: Lewis Boothe, Noah R. Boothe, J.W. Boothe, and Thomas Boothe. Cornelius Boothe was a member of Company B, 42nd Virginia Infantry, under Captains Henry Lane and Abner Dobyns, captured at Chancellorsville, May 1863, and died in prison at Elmira, New York, in 1864. Wright Boothe was Orderly Sergeant under Captain Sparrel Griffith in Company H, 54th Infantry. William Boothe was a member of Company G, 21st Virginia Cavalry, under Captain A.O. Dobyns, captured and died in prison at Camp Chase. Abner Boothe was a member of Col. Robert L. Preston's Reserves, under Captain Andrew J. Graham."

York County, Virginia

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.
