Charles Booth was born in North Wheatley Nottingham. He married Rebecca Blythman and had three children.
In 1817, he was arrested with 17 others when a forged note was found in a local pub, perhaps the Sun Inn.
He was transported to Sydney, where his farming skills were greatly needed. He was one of the first white people to settle land around Bathurst and Wellington NSW and is mentioned in local histories.
After obtaining his ticket of leave in 1828, he settled at Millthorpe and is credited with being it’s founder. He named his farm Grove Farm after Grove in Nottingham.
Two of his children joined him in Australia years later. The other stayed in UK.
