Please see www.boutefoy.net  or  www.geneanet.org for the French Boutefoy family tree.

Excuse me, I'm French and don't speak English fluently.

Hi everyone,
I have started a new thread asking for Butfoy descendants who have DNA tested, as we are trying to finally make progress on the mysterious birth of Eliza Butfoy b1821.

Hoping this links to the new thread...

Hi there,

New to this forum, but Butfoy is a name which features many times in my family tree, with my 3rd Great Grandmother being Rebecca Butfoy, going back up to my 9th great grandfather who was Charles Bouttefoy.

Fascinating stuff.

Hi, I am trying to trace the origin of the Surname Butfoy. I have been told it may be French?  My g g grandmother was Rebecca Butfoy who married Charles Nix in 1836 at St Leonards, Shoreditch.  She was born 1818 in Bethnal Green,  her father was James and mother Ann. Any help would be much appreciated. Thank you, Sara.

Hi Sara,

My 3rd great grandmother was Rebecca Butfoy and if you search my family tree on Ancestry, I have traced the line back to the 1600's. It is French and we are decedents of the Hugenots going all the way back to Charles Bouttefouy and Catherine Deshay early 1600's.

It does appear they came to England via Rochester and settled in Canterbury before moving to London.

I myself are English, having been born the East End and my Father was from Battersea.

My Family tree is under Rebecca Taylor and you are most welcome to search this.
