The earliest members in the descendancy of this family are covered only in part by Complete Peerage, and include the following connections: "William le Boteler [married Sibyl] son and heir of Henry (who d. v.p.), and grandson and heir of William le Boteler, of Warrington, co. Lancaster (who was Sheriff of co. Lancaster 1258-59, and Gov. of Lancaster Castle)". The latter William le Boteler, grandfather of the first mentioned, is footnoted "the Lordship of Warrington was acquired by the marriage of Beatrice, daughter and heir of Matthew de Villiers, of Warrington, with Richard le Boteler, whose successor William le Boteler, was holding it in 1212". Also, William le Boteler [md Sibyl] "his widow Sibyl and his son William were living in 1330". These bits of information do not account for certain individuals shown in the pedigree above, a prime example being Almeric le Boteler, but these missing portions, as well as spouses not mentioned by CP have been garnered from bits of information from Ancestral Roots (i.e., Ada, daughter of Thomas of Workington, is shown with a second husband, William le Boteler, Lord of Warrington), and by careful scrutiny of messages posted by some very capable individuals on both SGM and GMED. It should be noted also that CP states at the end of its coverage of William le Boteler (who md Sibyl) that "the accounts of his issue are extremely contradictory". The last four generations of this line, from John le Boteler, who married Isabel Harington, down through Margery, are supported by Ancestral Roots.
a. Founder of the Warrington Boteler family, Robert held the office of Butler to Ranulph de Gernon, Earl of Chester, and thus assumed the name Boteler. He founded an abbey for cistercian monks at Poulton, in Chester. He is assumed, here, to have been the father of Richard Pincerna (le Boteler), because he is the known earliest progenitor, and the known dates for his employer, Ranulph de Gernon (b ca 1105-10, d 16 Dec 1153), would place him as the likely father of Richard le Boteler.
b. Most often seen as Richard Pincerna, he acquired the Lordship of Warrington by his marriage to Beatrice, the daughter and heir of Matthew de Villiers of Warrington.
c. His father's successor, he was holding Warrington in 1212.
d. He succeeded his grandfather around 1280, and on 14 Jun 1294, was summoned to attend the King in the French Wars in Gascony. He was summoned to Parliament 23 Jun 1295, 26 Aug 1295, and 6 Feb 1298/99, whereby he is held to have become Lord le Boteler. He was with the expedition to Scotland in 1305-06, and died about 1328. His widow Sibyl and son William were living in 1330.
