Gore Booth

The Gore Booth family were descended from Sir Francis Booth who was granted land at Ardtermon, barony of Carbury, county Sligo in the 17th Century. This had previously been part of the O'Hart estate. He married Anne Parke, heiress of Robert Parke of Parke's Castle, county Leitrim. The family became Gore Booths as a result of an advantagous marriage between Nathaniel Gore and Letitia Booth in 1711. Sir Francis great grandson, Booth Gore, built a new house at Lisadell in the mid 18th century. In 1906 Sir Jocelyn Gore Booth is recorded as the occupier of property, including a mansion house, at Lissadell townland, barony of Carbury. After 1909 and again in 1915 offers were accepted from the Congested Districts Board on over 2500 acres of the estate.
