Bulter History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The name Bulter is Anglo-Saxon in origin. It was a name given to a sifter of meal. Other evidence suggests that the surname Bulter was established as an area called Boulder. From there people acquired the surname. The name is also derived from the Old English word bulder which means boulder or cobblestone. Alternatively the name could have been derived from the word bolter which was a miller. Boulter's Lock and Boutler's Island are both located on the River Thames on the eastern side of Maidenhead, Berkshire.

Early Origins of the Bulter family


The surname Bulter was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times, long before the Norman Conquest in 1066.

The recorded variations of Bulter include Boulter, Bolter, Boulder, Bolteir and others.
