The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names. As the form of the English language changed, even the spelling of literate people's names evolved. Butlin has been recorded under many different variations, including Butlin, Butevilain, Buteuillanus, Butevilein, Botevileyn, Botevilein, Botevelyn, Butveleyn, Butlyn, Butlen, Botlin and many more.

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]

For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Butlin or a variant listed above:
