Sir Brooke Boothby, 10th Baronet (13 November 1856 – 22 January 1913)[1 ] was a British baronet and diplomat.

Born at Welwyn Rectory in Hertfordshire, he was the son of Sir Brooke Boothby, 9th Baronet.[2 ] His mother was Martha Serena Boothby, the eldest daughter of Charles, in turn younger son of Sir William Bootby, 7th Baronet.[2 ] He succeeded his father as baronet in 1865, aged nine.[3 ] Boothby was educated at Harrow School and joined then the Her Majesty's Diplomatic Service in 1881.[3 ] A year later he was advanced to an attaché[4] and in 1884 was gazetted a third secretary.[5] Four years thereafter he was promoted to second secretary.[1 ]

Boothby was sent as first secretary to Rio de Janeiro in 1898[6] and was transferred to Tokyo in 1901.[7] After a year he came to Brussels[1 ] and in 1905 became counsellor of embassy in Vienna.[8] Boothby was appointed Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to the Republic of Chile in 1907, a post he held for the next six years until his death in 1913.[9]

Boothby died unmarried and childless.[1 ] He was succeeded in the baronetcy by his younger brother Charles.[1 ]
