The name Boteler is rooted in the Old French translation a "bouteiller," a name for someone who was in charge of the wine cellar. This person was often the chief servant of the Medieval household. However, there is also another possible derivation of this name, from the Middle English word "boteler," which denoted a maker of (leather) bottles.

Boteler Early Origins



The surname Boteler was first found in Normandy where they held a family seat as Seigneurs of Wemme. Their ancient title was Butler (Bouteillier) to the Counts of Meulent (Robert de Beaumont about 1066,) the actual family name being Pincerna. This title was then adopted as a surname.

One of the first records of the name was Arnold le Boteler who was the first recorded 'lord' of the Welsh village of Pembrey where he established manor house and estate which is now known as Court Farm during the reign of William the Conqueror. Later, William le Boteler was rector of the church of St. Elphin, Warrington, Lancashire c. 1289. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Some of the family later held estates in Great and Little Badminton in Gloucestershire. "[Great Badminton], together with Little Badminton, is nearly all included within the boundary wall of Badminton Park, the seat of the Duke of Beaufort, whose ancestor, the first duke, built a princely mansion in the reign of Charles II., on the site of an ancient house belonging to the Boteler family."
