Origin of the Name Booth

The ancient history of the name Booth was found in the archives. The name Booth is of occupational origin, describing a keeper of cows and livestock. Variations include Boot, Boothe, Boothman, Bootman, Boothey and Boothroyd. This name is of Anglo-Saxon descent spreading to the Celtic countries of Ireland, Scotland and Wales in early times and is found in many mediaeval manuscripts throughout these countries. Examples of such are a Rogerus del Bothe, an Adam del Bothe and a Margeria del Bothe, who were all recorded in the 'Poll Tax' of the West Riding of Yorkshire, England, in the year 1379. A Walter de la Bothe, recorded as a Merchant in Aberdeen in Scotland, had his ship plundered at sea by the English near Yarmouth in the year 1273.
In Ireland this name and its variants were introduced into Ulster Province by settlers who arrived from England and Scotland, especially during the seventeenth century. It was the 'Plantations of Ireland' in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries that marked the end of Gaelic supremacy in Ireland. While the influx of settlers in the wake of the earlier Anglo-Norman invasion of the twelfth century resulted in a full integration into Irish society of the new arrivals, the same never occurred with the Ulster Planters who maintained their own distinct identity.
The name is also long associated with Counties Dublin and Sligo.
The Booth coat of arms came into existence centuries ago. The process of creating coats of arms (also often called family crests) began in the eleventh century although a form of Proto-Heraldry may have existed in some countries prior to this. The new art of Heraldry made it possible for families and even individual family members to have their very own coat of arms, including all Booth descendants.
