Frances Booth's birth date is based on a deposition she gave In 1668 and stated her birth was in 1619. I discovered that other researchers had her birth date as 1609 and decided to check the information I had collected. The 1609 for the date of birth appears to have been a typo from a Booth family page and passed along.[1][2]

Name Frances Burges Arrival Year 1618-1619 Arrival Place Virginia Source Publication Code 3315 Primary Immigrant Burges, Frances Annotation Date child brought to hospital to remain until transport and intended destination. Extracted from microfilms of Bridewell Royal Hospital records kept at Bridewell/Royal Bethlem Hospital Joint Archives in Beckenham, Kent. Source Bibliography:HUME, ROBERT. Early Child Immigrants to Virginia, 1618-1642, Copied from the Records of Bridewell Royal Hospital. Baltimore: Magna Carta Book Co., 1986. 52p. Page 10[3]

From the Encyclopedia of Virginia Biography it mentions her as the wife of Robert Booth. "Booth, Robert, was clerk of York County from about 1640 till his death 1657; burgess for York County in 1653 and 1654, married Frances ---, and was father of (1) Robert, captain and justice of the peace for York county, who married Anne, daughter of James Bray, Esq., and Angelica, his wife; (2) Elizabeth, who married Dr. Patrick Napier; and (3) probably William, J. P. of York County."[4][5]

Two good books written about the Napier family do not give a birth date for Frances, nor names for her parents. She is mentioned as wife Frances --- .[6] and [7]

Robert Booth died 1657, leaving widow, Frances and three children -- (1) Elizabeth married Dr. Patrick Napier; (2) Robert married Ann Bray; and (3) Anne married 1st Thomas Dennett and 2nd William Clopton.[8]

In another publication there are 5 children mentioned for Robert and Frances Booth: 1. Elizabeth that married Dr. Patrick Napier; 2. Anne that married 1st Thomas Dennett and 2nd William Clopton; 3. Robert; 4. Eleanor; 5. (probably) William.[9]

Burgess-7375 and Burgess-4902 appear to represent the same person because: for the profile manager of 7375, please read through the biography and sources on -4902. The birth date is an error per research and the name of the husband also appears to be incorrect, if this is intended to be the same person.
