According to this son George was born 1780:

BOORMAN, George Christening
Gender: Male
Christening Date: 12 Apr 1780 Recorded in: Chatham, Kent, England
Collection: BTs
Father: John BOORMAN
Mother: Ann DAY
Source: FHL Film 1469178 Dates: 1764 - 1790

Edit: It's unusual to have mother's maiden name on such an early record. Could it be that the parents weren't married?
