Early Origins of the Botevelyn family


The surname Botevelyn was first found in Norfolk, but early records also revealed that the name was found in Northamptonshire where Boutevillaine was changed to Butlin. Such changes were frequently listed "Butlin alias Boutevillaine" up to the time of Elizabeth. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

Botevelyn Spelling Variations


Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Botevelyn include Butlin, Butevilain, Buteuillanus, Butevilein, Botevileyn, Botevilein, Botevelyn, Butveleyn, Butlyn, Butlen, Botlin and many more.

Migration of the Botevelyn family to the New World and Oceana


Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Botevelyn or a variant listed above: John Butlin who arrived in Barbados in 1668.
