The Botevyle family came from France originally and settled in a small hamlet now called Botevyle just outside Church Stretton. I can trace my direct line back to the original immigrant, Sir Geoffroy de Bouteville (alias Geoffrey Botevyle), from whom its likely that most other Botevyles descendants in the county can also trace their line.

The are countless spelling variants but these include Buteville, Botfield, Botville etc. I'd be interested in hearing from anyone with a link to this unusual name. Please see more details on my web site
