The name Leboutilier is rooted in the Old French translation a "bouteiller," a name for someone who was in charge of the wine cellar. This person was generally the head of the servants, the administrator of the estates, and held considerable power.

Leboutilier Early Origins



The surname Leboutilier was first found in Normandy where they held a family seat as Seigniors of Wemme. Their ancient title was Butler (Bouteillier) to the Counts of Meulent (Robert de Beaumont about 1066,) the actual family name being Pincerna. This title was then adopted as a surname.

Leboutilier Spelling Variations



Endless spelling variations are a prevailing characteristic of Norman surnames. Old and Middle English lacked any definite spelling rules, and the introduction of Norman French added an unfamiliar ingredient to the English linguistic stew. French and Latin, the languages of the court, also influenced spellings. Finally, Medieval scribes generally spelled words according to how they sounded, so one person was often referred to by different spellings in different documents. The name has been spelled Bouteiller, Boutteillier, Bouthellier, Bouteillier, LeBoutillier, LeBouteillier, Boutillier, LeBoutillier, Boutouiller, Botelers, de Buitlier, LeBoutellier, Boutellier and many more.

The Great Migration



To escape the political and religious persecution within England at the time, many English families left for the various British colonies abroad. The voyage was extremely difficult, though, and the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving. But for those who made it, the trip was most often worth it. Many of the families who arrived went on to make valuable contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families reveals a number of immigrants bearing the name Leboutilier or a variant listed above: Michel Boutteillier, who came to Philadelphia in 1798; H.G. Bouthellier came to New York in 1820; Charles LeBoutellier to Philadelphia in 1844; and Jean Bouteillier to New York 1896..
