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.

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."
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.
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.
