Boothby Ancestry:

This is the ancestry of Grandpa Rust’s grandmother, Nellie Olive Boothby, beginning with her immigrant ancestor, Henry Boothby, born in England in 1672.

Nellie Olive Boothby is Aidan, Ashley and Haley’s 2nd great grandmother. Henry Boothby is their 9th great grandfather.

Burrage, Henry Sweetser and Albert Roscoe Stubbs.  Genealogical and Family History of the State of Maine, Volume 4 (Maine: Lewis Historical Publishing Company, 1909), 1,674. (free Google eBook): “The name and family of Boothby are of great antiquity, and may be traced back at least a thousand years. One distinguished antiquarian states that about the year 800, King Egbert divided the Saxon nation into counties, hundreds, and wapentakes, and that one of the latter sections in Lincolnshire was named Boothby.”

First Generation in America

1.HENRY¹ BOOTHBY, born in England in 1672 and died in Scarborough, York, Maine.

From: Burrage, Genealogical and Family History, 1,674-1,677. “(I) Henry Boothby was born in England, migrated to Ireland, married and had children there and came to Kittery, now in Maine, about 1720. His brother, Thomas, who had been with him in Ireland, came by way Halifax, Nova Scotia to Wells, Maine. It is possible that Henry Boothby moved to Scarborough with his sons and was the Henry Boothby whose name appears as a charter member of the Black Point church. It known that he had two sons, Thomas, whose sketch follows, and Samuel, who settled in Scarborough. There was also a Jane Boothby, who might have been a daughter of Henry, who was published with John Moore 2 Kittery, December 18 1742. (II) Thomas, son of Henry Boothby, born in Ireland, in 1700, and died, at Scarborough, Maine, March 25 1758. He came to Kittery, Maine, with his father about 1720, and settled at Scarborough, between 1730 and 1736. The intention of his marriage to Lydia Came, was recorded at Kittery, January 8 1725. They had seven children: 1 Jonathan born December 1 1725; 2 Samuel whose sketch follows; 3 Joseph May 19 1729 married Susan McClellan of Portland and lived at Scarborough; 4 Miriam April 17 1733 married John Deering at Kittery; 5 John April 27 1735 died young; 6 Eunice November 22 1736 married Philip Aubin and died in 1756; 7 Lois November 22 1736 married Isaac Deering.” From: Genealogical and Family History of the State of Maine, Volume 4, by Henry Sweetser Burrage, Albert Roscoe Stubbs, pp. 2116-2117.: “(IV) John 3, son of Ebenezer Moore, was born about 1715. He married at Kittery, intentions dated, December 18, 1742, Jane Boothby. The history of Saco states that their descendants are scattered through York County, Maine. She was the daughter of Henry Boothby, born in England, settled in Ireland, married there, and came with children to Kittery, about 1720. It is possible that he removed to Scarborough with his sons, and was the Henry Boothby, whose name appears as a charter member of the Black Point Church. If so, and the proof is convincing, he was ancestor of all of the name, in Scarborough, and vicinity. Children of Henry and Thomas Boothby: i. Richard, born about 1700, died January 2 1782, was a prominent citizen of Wells; ii. John died in the expedition to Canada, in 1756; iii. Henry married Sarah Trafton, of York, and settled in Wells; iv. Thomas, born in Ireland, about 1710, married Lydia Came, in Kittery, and settled in Scarborough, died March 25 1758;v. Samuel, born in Ireland, came to Kittery, in 1720, settled in Scarborough, in 1736, and was progenitor through his youngest son of nearly all of the name in Saco; vi. Jane mentioned above. The last three were children of Henry, the first three of Thomas Boothby his brother. John Morr, Jr., as he was called at the time of his marriage, doubtless to distinguish him from his cousin and uncle of the same name in Kittery, removed from Kittery, to Scarborough where his wife’s people lived. Children born [to John and Jane] in Kittery: 1 Dennis, born March 25 1744; 2 Mary, born April 26 1746 married 1765 Lemuel Remick; 3 Ebenezer, born March 28 1750, 4 Isaac, 5 John mentioned below, 6 Abram.”
