The name Boutelier is rooted in the Old French translation a "bouteiller," a name for someone who was in charge of the wine cellar. This person was generally the head of the servants, the administrator of the estates, and held considerable power.

Boutelier Early Origins



The surname Boutelier was first found in Normandy where they held a family seat as Seigniors 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.

Boutelier Spelling Variations



Anglo-Norman names are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. When the Normans became the ruling people of England in the 11th century, they introduced a new language into a society where the main languages of Old and later Middle English had no definite spelling rules. These languages were more often spoken than written, so they blended freely with one another. Contributing to this mixing of tongues was the fact that medieval scribes spelled words according to sound, ensuring that a person's name would appear differently in nearly every document in which it was recorded. The name has been spelled Bouteiller, Boutteillier, Bouthellier, Bouteillier, LeBoutillier, LeBouteillier, Boutillier, LeBoutillier, Boutouiller, Botelers, de Buitlier, LeBoutellier, Boutellier and many more.

The Great Migration



For many English families, the political and religious disarray that plagued their homeland made the frontiers of the New World an attractive prospect. Thousands migrated, aboard cramped disease-ridden ships. They arrived sick, poor, and hungry, but were welcomed in many cases with far greater opportunity than at home in England. Many of these hardy settlers went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Among early immigrants bearing the name Boutelier or a variant listed above were: Michel Boutteillier, who came to Philadelphia in 1798; H.G. Bouthellier came to New York in 1820; Charles LeBoutellier to Philadelphia in 1844; and Jean Bouteillier to New York 1896..
