I'm a Butler via my father.  I am female, but, I have done my DNA test. If you are still looking for Butler matches, I certainly am.  I have a brickwall on my 3rd great grandfather who emigrated from England around 1861.  Elijah James Butler b. 1846 England.  I believe he may be David Butler and Elizabeth Belcher's child, but, I have not yet confirmed.

1851
Blewbury Berkshire
David Butler 34 ag lab
Elizabeth 35
George 10
Charles 8
Hannah 7
Emma 5
Elijah 4  bn Berkshire
Israel 4
Isaac 2
Job 2 mths

Not spotting his birth reg

There is one Jul/Aug/Sep 1846 with mmn Bury, but that is in Ellesmore Reg District, so not looking likely to be the same one.

Interstingly, I can see Israel  Ap/MAy/Jun 1846 Wantage mmn Belcher, but not Elijah.
And an Alfred Oct/Nov/Dec 1847, slotted between Israel and Issac
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

FreeBMD has Elijah BUTLER 1846 Q2 but not on GRO website.  Same Q on FreeBMD also has Elijah BOOKER.  That one is on the GRO, mmn KIMBER.  And Elijah HERMAN mmn YATTLE.  Some more Elijahs in the quarters following, it was a surprisingly popular name.  Perhaps the child in question was adopted by family after death of his mother/parents?  I know it happened more than we probably realise.  A couple of my dead rellies ended up in AUS after their parents died, prior to their emigration they were with their uncle and aunt for one census.  Easier in my case because surname was the same.

BTW I have BUTLERs also and I've done a DNA test, but my BUTLERS are probably too many generations back to have passed any significant amount of DNA on to me.

Hi,

To add to lizdb's reply;
there are three baptisms all on 7-6-1846 in Blewbury (Ex OFHS CD);
Emma, Elijah & Israel with parents as David & Elizabeth Butler from Upton.

There is also a David Butler bapt. 21-3-1816 s/o George & Elizabeth

Also in Blewbury there is this marriage;
13-10-1838 David Butler, fa, bach, Labr, of Upton (s/o George, farmer) to
                  Elizabeth Belcher, fa, sp, of Upton (d/o William Hemmings, Labr
wits; Isaac Butler, Mary Ann Sims(x) By Banns.


This more or less confirms the info you mention and I hope it helps.

Alan
Browse, Peggs, Revans/Revance/Ribbans, Spall,   in Suffolk/Norfolk
Belcher, Elderfield, Froude, Saunders,  Stimson, Tame,   in Berks
Artis, Gray in Norfolk

Thank you to everyone that replied!  I certainly hope he wasn't adopted into the family, as that would certainly make things a bit difficult and it would mean, we aren't Butler's at all! 
I did see in the 1861 census Elizah and Ezra (Elijah and Israel?) are working as ag workers.  There is an Elijah, 25 on a passenger list to MD, USA in 1872.  But, no Israel.  Wonder if this is my Elijah and I'm on the right track, why he would come to the US alone?  Thank you all again so much.

I was told in a FB group, that the GRO shows this: 

BUTLER, ISRAEL mother BELCHER Order
GRO Reference: 1846 J Quarter in WANTAGE UNION Volume 06 Page 274 Order

BULLER, ELIJAH mother BELCHER Order
GRO Reference: 1846 J Quarter in WANTAGE UNION Volume 06 Page 274

So, a typo on the last name!
