The vast movement of people that followed the Norman Conquest of England of 1066 brought the Buttery family name to the British Isles. They lived in Northampton. The name Buttery refers to the family's original place of residence, Boteri in Falaise, Normandy, where they lived prior to the Norman Conquest of England in 1066.

Buttery Early Origins



The surname Buttery was first found in Northampton where they held a family seat from very early times and were granted lands by Duke William of Normandy, their liege Lord, for their distinguished assistance at the Battle of Hastings in 1066 A.D.

Buttery Spelling Variations



A multitude of spelling variations characterize Norman surnames. Many variations occurred because Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules. The introduction of Norman French to England also had a pronounced effect, as did the court languages of Latin and French. Therefore, one person was often referred to by several different spellings in a single lifetime. The various spellings include Buttery, Buttry, Butry and others.

The Great Migration



Many English families left England, to avoid the chaos of their homeland and migrated to the many British colonies abroad.

Research into the origins of individual families in North America has revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Buttery or a variant listed above:
