Origin, Meaning and Family History of the Butler Name

Surname Name Meaning, Origin, and Etymology
The Butler name is derived from the office of King’s Butler in Ireland, conferred upon Theobald le Boteler by the King in 1177. The head of the family claimed presage and butlerage (Presage was the right of taking one ton of wine from every ship importing 10-20 tons, and 2 tons from every ship importing more than 20, until 1302 when Kind Edward I changed it to a duty of two shillings on every ton imported, called butlerage because it was paid to the Kings Butler. Butlerage ceased in 1809).

The name is also derived from the ’bottler’ or bottle maker, or the one that looked after or supplied the bottles or the wine.  It refers, in some cases, to pouches or leather bottles. (Botiler).
