This line is the most complete - perhaps because Cornwall was never ravaged during the civil wars. We know the first Boterel at Boscastle was Nicholas because a charter of Henry I says so. His son was William Boterel who married the king's cast-off mistress and did well out of it.

This is the only line with an actual title - Baron Botreaux. Other Bottrills elsewhere were lords or knights.
