Notes for Alfred Allen BOOTH
The Booth Baronetcy, of Allerton Beeches in the City of Liverpool, was created in the Baronetage of the United Kingdom on 24 January 1916 for Alfred Allen Booth, a Director of Alfred Booth and Company and Chairman of the Cunard Steamship Company. He was a member of a cadet branch of the ancient Cheshire family, being descended from the Booths of Twemlow. As of 2011 the title is held by his grandson, Doug Booth, the third Baronet, who succeeded his father in 1960. He is a television and film writer living in the United States. The eminent Victorian social researcher and philanthropist Charles Booth was the uncle of the first Baronet; to Gladstone's dismay, he declined offers of elevation to the peerage.
