The ancestors of the Buttry family brought their name to England in the wave of migration after the Norman Conquest of 1066. They lived in Northampton. The name Buttry 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.

Buttry Early Origins



The surname Buttry 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



The unstable environment in England at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland, Australia, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Buttry arrived in North America very early:
