William was the son of Almeric le Boteler and Alicia Gernet.
He was under age at the time of his father’s death. He was under the wardship of William, Earl of Ferrars. The earl paid a good sun of 100£ for this wardship and the marriage of his daughter to Sir William. This was a huge sum, which shows that the estates of the young heir were quite large. The record of this find reads “The king the sheriff of Lincolnshire. Know ye, that for a fine of 100£, which Earl William de Ferrars hath paid us to have the wardship of the lands and heir of Almeric le Boteler until their full age, with their marriage, we command you to give the said Earl seisin of all the lands of the said Almeric in your bailiwick.”
In 1254 (38 Henry III), William was attached to answer Roger de Heyton in a plea of trespass for breaking his close, and entering the said Roger’s turbary in Brun in Lancashire, and there throwing into a pit the turves which Roger had cut and gathered, and also ill-treating his men. In 1255, William obtained the king’s charter to hold a three day fair yearly at his manor of Warrington, on the eve, the day and the morrow of the translation of St. Thomas the martyr.

William became a knight in 1256, at which time he called himself the baron of Warrington. William built a new house which was named Bewsey or Beausey which means fair seat. When Sir William became the sheriff of Lancashire in 1256 he is called Willielmus Pincerna de Bewsey, which is the first mention on the name Bewsey. Later, 6 Feb 1259, King Henry III bestowed the honor of the governor and caste of Lancaster, but also the honor of the high sheriff of the county.
Sir William le Boteler had served the king in his campaigning against the Welsh in 10-11 Edward I or 1282-1283. An account of the campaign has the entry of payment, and William is mentioned with “To Master William le boteler for the wages of one constable, two-hundred-and-and-six archers, with ten captains of twenties, from Saturday 16 Jan 1283 to Wednesday the 27th of the same month for twelves days 22£ 4s.
On 14 Jul 1287 (15 Edward I), William le Boteler, described as of Warrington, was again summoned to appear with horse and arms at a military council to be held before Edmund, Earl of Cornwall at Gloucester which lead to the conquest of Wales. He was summoned again on 3 Jun 1291 to appear at Norham, this time to perform military service against the Scots. William was again summoned to parliament on 24 Feb 1297 to be held at Salisbury, and again on 6 Feb 1299.
William le Boteler married Dionysia, the daughter of Henry and Joanna de Lostock. He outlived his wife, and after her death, in her memory, he bestowed a large gift of twenty acres of land in Laton, to pray for the repose of her soul. William died in 1303.

Warrington is a large town and unitary authority area in Cheshire, England, on the banks of the River Mersey, 20 miles (32 km) east of Liverpool, and 20 miles (32 km) west of Manchester. The population in 2015 was estimated at 207,700,[2] more than double that of 1968 when it became a New Town. Warrington is the largest town in the county of Cheshire.

Warrington was founded by the Romans at an important crossing place on the River Mersey. A new settlement was established by the Saxons. By the Middle Ages, Warrington had emerged as a market town at the lowest bridging point of the river. A local tradition of textile and tool production dates from this time.

Lord William, 8th Baron Warrington, was the son of Henry le Boteler and Isabella le Boteler. He had a son also named William.

Imagine That! I never knew that I had Royal Blood in me!

post

Across the ocean, many, many miles of ocean, my Roots run deep from Europe. I never even thought about having ancestors from England, Ireland, Scotland, and Finland, Norway, and Holland are some of my ancestors.

I knew that I had been told that I had Norwegian, German, and Moravian in me, but my mother had no idea that our Roots traced all the way back to the the 1300’s. I believed that I descended from poor dirt farmers and peasants. 

All of my ancestors came here Legally, and fought in all of our wars, supported themselves, and never took handouts or expected others to support them or their families. They were proud Americans and they fought for our U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights. My Linderman ancestors helped to form these United States of America.

They taught me that there was honor in any kind of work, and that God, Country, and Family were most important in life. I was content to know that my ancestors were honest and honorable people. They worked for what they wanted, and did not steal it from others! 

I have joked around about not being royalty but probably a descendant of the slaves. A lot of people want to believe that they descended from royalty, but I accepted the unlikelihood of that being true for me.

Now, in 2017 after thirty years of research, I have found out that I do have royal blood in me. But…it really does not change anything for me. I am royalty…through Jesus Christ…and that is all that is important to me. I am so grateful to have been born into a family that I can be proud of.

Henry was the son of William le Boteler and Dionysia de Lostock.
His name appears in records from 1261 until his death in 1297. In 1297, he was called to parliament as Henry le Boteler, and returned knight of the shire of Lancashire. When parliament is called the next year, his name does not appear. Also in the same year, Richard le Boteler of Merton granted lands to Henry’s widow, “dña Isabella quondam uxor Henrici le Boteler.” Isabella, Henry’s wife was the daughter of the first Richard le Boteler of Merton, and therefore a first cousin once removed to her husband Henry.
Children of Henry and Isabella le Boteler were:
William le Boteler, eldest son, and heir of his grandfather to the barony of Warrington. Norman, referred to in the Walley Coucher Book, on page 425
A daughter, who married Richard Radclyffe.
