RICHARD BOOTH, said to be the son of Edward and Marsia ( ) Booth, Immigrant in 1639 from England to America. Born 1606/07, bp Aug 1608 at the Great Budworth Parish Church of Great Budworth, County Cheshire, England. He removed to Stratford, Ct about 1640 and died there. In an affidavit on 15 March 1687/8 he describes himself s about 81 years of age. He md. 1640 Stratford, Ct. ELIZABETH HAWLEY, sister of Joseph Hawley. Ref: Jacobus - The Booth chart compiled by George Munson Booth of Chicago, IL, states that Richard was baptised at Great Budworth, Co. Cheshire, England August 1608, a son of Edward (d. 1628), who was a son of William of Twemlow, Co. Cheshire (by his wife Ellen, dau of John Davenport of Davenport), who was a son of Edward of Twemlow, who was a son of Sir William Booth of Dunham Massie, Co. Cheshire (d. 1519). The earlier generations of this pedigree are authentic, but I know not the authority for the connection of this line with Richar of Stratford. He was one of the founers of Stratford, and in March 1687/8 gave his age in an affidavit as about 81. From the terms of the will of his son Ephraim, it is likely that his wife Elizabeth was a sister of Mr. Joseph Hawley. No probate found.

On 1C9 Dec 1657 the widow, Rebecca Cornell, was granted 10 acres of land in lieu of 10 acres granted her husband. In 1659 she deeded these 10 acres to her son and daughter Kent. On 30 April 1661 Rebecca sold two parcels of land containing 8 acres with house, fruit trees, etc cofirmed by her son Thomas in 1663. On 25 Oct 1663 Rebecca conveys to her son Joshua 1/6 th of a share of landat Coshena and Acookset (part of Dartmouth) in Plymouth Jurisdiction. This he conveyed 21 Nov 1664 to his brother Samuel. Also 20 acres of land he bought of William Earle. On 27 July she deeded to her eldest son Thomas, all her housing, orchard, land and fencing in Portsmouth. At her death she held Thomas bound for 100 pounds. In 1669 she conveys to her son Samuel 1/6 th land in Dartmouth. On 8 Feb 1773 Friends Records state “Rebecca Cornell, widow, was killed strangely at Portsmouth in her own dwelling house, was twice viewed by the Coroner's Inquest, digged up and buried again by her husband's grave in their own land. On 23 May her son Thomas was charged with her murder, and after a trial that now reads like a farce was convicted and executed. Among the witnesses of this trial were John Briggs, Rebecca's brother, Mary, wife of her son John Cornell, Thomas, Stephen, Edward and John, sons of Thoms, Rebecca Woolsey, Her dau. Etc. It appears that the old lady having bee sitting by the fire smoking pipe, a col had fallen from the fire on her pipe, and that she was burned to death. But on the strength of a vision which her brother John Briggs had, in which she appeared to him after her death and said: “See how I was burned with fire.” It was inferred she was set fire to, and that her son who was last with her did it, and principally on this evidence Thomas Cornell was tried, convicted and hung for her murder.

Immigrant from Bristol, England
PHILLIP GALPIN, son of John and Mary ( ) Galpin, born in Somersetshire, England, died 19 November 1684/5 Rye, N.Y. Will dated March 27, 1684, page 378, Westchester County New York. Juror, and founder. He married at Stratford, Ct. 1st, after June of 1646, to ELIZABETH SMITH, who had been a servant of Mrs. Leech. He went before the court on account of some irregularity of the marriage, a common occurence in the families of Quakers and Baptists of the early days. It is presumed that he was not in strict accord with the Puritan church. He was named as a legatee in the will of Nathaniel Draper in 1647. He married 2nd Hannah Jackson, the daughter of Henry Jackson of Fairfield, whose will in 1682 called her Hannah Galpin. Hannah married 2nd Stephen Sherwood. Phillip removed to Fairfield in 1657, and to Rye, N.Y. by 1665 and was living on Manursing Island. He was one of the petitioners for the grant at Rye known as Hastings in 1662. Most of the settlers removed in 1671 from what is now called manursing Island to the mainland, but Galpin not only wished to stay but petitioned the general court at Hartford to compel his neighbors to remain also. "He felt sorely aggrieved that his neighbors left him behind," but the court decided against him and advised Galpin to go with his neighbors and "if he remain to take care of damnifying his neighbors." Galpins cove on the west side of Bling Brook creek is named for him. He died in Rye in 1685.
His will dated 27 March 1684, and proved 19 November 1684 mentions his wife, son John and his eldest
son John, and Samuel, Benjamin, Joseph, Jeremiah, Moses and daughters Sarah, and Hannah. The rest of my daughters five shillings apiece. Overseers, Thomas Lyon, Sr., and Gershom Lockwood.

In the following year he was in Ipswich, Massachusetts, where he sold six acres of land, march 12, 1641.
