This is my own branch of the Bottrill family from which many of the sub-branches in the colonies come - Australia, United States, and Canada. All were commoners in an agricultural area, so intermarriage with others from neighbouring counties - Leicestershire and Warwickshire - were few. Mediaeval roads were poor, so relations only met at markets, fairs and holy day celebrations. There were other branches within Northamptonshire - they need further research.
