Note: The Hawley Record, compiled and published by Elias Sill Hawley 1890 Genealogical Note #4, page 436 Elizabeth Hawley, sister of Joseph Hawley the first, married Richard Boothe, and they settled in Stratford, with Joseph Hawley, about 1659.
Richard Boothe was born in England, about 1607, for in an affidavit, March 15 1687-8, he describes himself as about 81 years of age, but from what part of England he came is not known. That his wife Elizabeth was the sister of Joseph Hawley seems quite certain, since his son Ephraim Boothe in his will calls Samuel Hawley, son of Joseph, "cousin." Richard Boothe and his wife were both living in 1688, and nothing is known as to the death of either of them. He was a proprietor in the township and received divisions of land for many years as others; and was a prominent citizen, one of the most reliable of the town, but not prominent in office except in the town.
The following, taken from the town records of Stratford, shows his position as first selectman of "townsman" as then called, and also the deed of humanity he was engaged in in finding a good home for a motherless little girl, "Modlin."
"This indenture made the 24th of June 1662, witnesseth that we the townsmen of Stratford upon good and serious considerations moving us thereunto, doebind out one Modlin a little girl about six years of age, that formerly did belong to a Frenchman that was in necessity upon the town of Stratford; we say, to John Minor of Stratford, to him, his heirs and assigns, till the aforesaid girl shall attayne the age of twenty-one yhears; we say we bind her with her father's consent; also a lawful apprentice to the aforesaid John Minor till the aforesaid term of tyme shall be fully and completely ended.
"The aforesaid John Minor engages to provide her with apparel and diet and bedding as may be suitable for such an apprentice.
"That this is our act and deed, and witnessed by subscibing the day and date abaove written. Richard Boothe, John Brinsmade, William Curtis, Caleb Nichols, Jeremiah Judson } Townsmen
