Booker Family Genealogy Forum
As far as I know, these are not on line, but I have found the book where I found these records in at least 3 genealogy libraries. I ordered films of the Reformed Church in Amsterdam from Salt Lake City and have found the actual record of Elizabeth Glover's baptism, but it was very hard to read. Edward Booker gave his age as 28 (I think, or maybe 26) when he presented his son for baptism, making his birthdate 1614, more in line with Elizabeth's baptism date of 1619. It appears that the 1590 birthdate for Edward which is often given is not correct; however that could be a grandfather as 1590 would make him 24 when Edward was born. Peter Wilson Coldham has several references in his books to trips across the Atlantic for both Edward Booker and Richard Glover. There is a reference in a Wm. & Mary Quarterly, which is on line, to Edward Booker returning to his residence on Tower St. in London to sell his tobacco which he has brought from VA. I am in the process of trying to read parish records of all parishes that are close to that area in Greater London; unfortunately, this area was destroyed by the great fire of London. I did learn that Tower St. was right on the wharf and was where many merchants lived to be close to the shipping. The more we learn, the more we want.
I'm a descedant of Richard Booker through both of his wives; i also have another Glover line, so I am really pursuing this.
