Butler Genealogy & History

Butler has, more or less, four origins, though two are closely related. In England, a butler was a servant who handled the wine cellar, from the Norman butuiller. Boutilier, a cognate, was a French surname, anglicized to Butler. In the former case, the word came to mean a trusted and influential servant. One man, after being appointed Chief Butler of Ireland, took it as his new surname. Butler family history also has its roots in a noble family in Ireland, as well as the Prussian region of what is now Germany. Butler genealogy includes Major General Smedley Butler of the Marine Corps, as well as Confederate General Matthew Butler.
