Bowthebay History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms 

Early Origins of the Bowthebay family

The surname Bowthebay was first found in Lincolnshire, at Boothby, a parish, in the Higher division of the wapentake of Boothby-Graffo, parts of Kesteven. [1] Boothby-Pagnell is nearby. The family is "a younger branch of the Barons de Tateshall, descended from Eudo, a foreign noble, living 1086. Boothby was held 13th cent. by Robert de Tateshall, the ancestor of this family Sir Alexander de Boothby had a writ of summons, 1296, to march against the Scots. From this family descend the Baronets Boothby." [2]

The date 1296 is very significant as this was the year that King Edward I (nicknamed the Hammer of the Scots) conquered Scotland. Like many other nobles of the time, the aforementioned Sir Alexander de Boothby was recruited for his quest.

About the same time, Thomas de Botheby was listed in the Hundredorum Rolls of 1273 as residing in Lincolnshire. Later, John de Botheby, was rector of Ryton, County Durham in 1312 and Henry Boothby was vicar of Stow-Bardolph, Norfolk in 1497. [3]
