Biography: 

George Booth, 2nd Earl of Warrington was the second but eldest surviving son of Henry Booth, 1st Earl and Mary, daughter of Sir James Langham of Cottesbrooke Park in Northamptonshire. He inherited the title of Earl of Warrington on his father's death in 1693. He married Mary, daughter and coheir of John Oldberry of the City of London. Upon his death, the Earldom of Warrington became extinct, while the family titles of Baron Delamer and the Baronetcy created in 1611, devolved upon his cousin, Nathaniel Booth. However his only daughter, Lady Mary Booth, the wife of Henry Grey, 4th Earl of Stamford, inherited all the Booth estates, including Dunham Massey. In 1896 their son George Harry Grey, was created Earl of Warrington in addition to his title of 5th Earl of Stamford.
