 BK   Capt. Richard Booker I
Although I am not a descendant of Capt. Richard Booker I, some of his descendants married into my family. Consequently, I have devoted Allied Family Topic BK to his family.

Capt. Richard Booker I, in his own words
If he could speak to us today, Capt. Richard Booker I might describe his life as follows.

In February 1686/7 as Capt. Richard Booker, I secured a patent for 740 acres in Gloucester County.  On 20 April 1694 I got an additional 180 acres there and, on 20 October 1704, was granted 613 acres in Essex County.  I was a militia captain of Gloucester County and a justice of the court in 1698-1702. 
I married first Rebecca Leake, the daughter of John Leake of York County, and we were the parents of Edmund, Judith, twins Edward and Richard, Ann, Richard, and John.
I married second Hannah Hand, the daughter of Richard Hand (c.1689) and Frances Purefoy. Hannah was then the widow of Capt. William Marshall who was killed in 1692. We had two children, Frances Booker and George Booker. Hannah was the mother also of William Marshall remembered in the 1751 will of her daughter Frances (Booker) Stokes.
