Booker, Thomas an English Congregational minister, was born in 1822. He joined the Church at Henley, labored first as an evangelist, and in 1849 was ordained pastor at Barrington, Cambridgeshire. In 1863 he emigrated to New Zealand, and labored successfully a few years at Newton; then removed to Maungaturoto, Kaipara, where he died, March 7, 1872. Mr. Booker's unaffected piety, gentleness of manner, prudence, and peculiar fitness for his great work, won for him a high place in the affection of all who knew him. See (Lond.) Cong.
