Born at Lusby, Lincolnshire, he was the son of Thomas Booth and his wife Anne (née Penyston) and a cousin of Sir Fairmeadow Penyston. He was descended from the Booths of Killingholme, originally from Barton in Lancashire.

Elected a Fellow of Magdalene College in 1702, Booth was ordained in 1703 by Dr. James Gardiner, Bishop of Lincoln. He was conferred with the degree of Doctor of Divinity (DD) by Cambridge University in 1728. He was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1703.
