Creasey`s Born in Ferry Booth
« on: Thursday 23 September 21 19:58 BST (UK) »
Hi all.

I am trying to find a place called Ferry Booth. I think it is in the Billinghay area, Lincolnshire.
The only reference to it I can find is in the 1771 Census, where William Rufus Creasey B1778, and his sister Ada B1776, both listed as born in Ferry Booth.

Is/was it a place, or a dwelling??
I grew up in Sleaford, and had never heard of it until it cropped up in the Census search.

I have tried Google and Maps, and even been for a drive round Billinghay, Walcot, and Dogdyke etc but to no avail.
We have contacted Lincoln Archives, but they could only confirm the Census references.

Please can anyone shed some light on this mystery.

Thanks,   Chris

There’s a wanted ad. in the 26 Mar 1955 Lincolnshire Standard with the contact details JW Measures Ferry Booth, Dog Dyke, Lincoln tel. Billinghay 267 but in another 1943 ad. JW Measures is at Terry Booth.  Could this be a case of variations on a name rather than a misspelling of one or the other?

I also found a 1929 ad for 'Terry Booth', a farm 'five miles from Langrick and Tattershall Stations, 11 miles from Boston and Sleaford', which I assume is the same as the listed building here https://historicengland.org.uk/listing/the-list/list-entry/1062048 which includes a national grid reference. And there’s this https://documentcloud.adobe.com/link/track?uri=urn:aaid:scds:US:1a2c9782-7885-4646-b37c-5e6fa5b08804

And in 1911, Ada gave her birth place as Ferry Booth, Dogdyke....

A search of the Lincolnshire Standard on BNA between 1900 and 1999 turns up 7 references to Ferry Booth and 99 to Terry Booth, suggesting to my mind that the one is a variation of the other - see my earlier reply.

You did all the hard work, Annie  ;) Terry Booth opened the door didn't it.
