so people against something like abortion
but for something like environmental protection never again get bigger and badder storms
and two bankrupting wars instead.

Butler 6: Boteler of Oversley, Boteler of Wemme Wem
There is no known relationship of this family to that shown in "Butler 1" which gave rise to the Earls of Ormonde and other Botiller or Butler families in Ireland. Ralph, the first reported below, was butler to Robert, Earl of Mellent and Leicester.

1 We are following TCP Boteler of Wem and BE1883 in showing this William as married only once, to Margaret FitzAlan. Visitation shows the same but, as it shows William as son of the Ralph who married Maude Pantulf, thereby missing out 2 generations, it loses some credibility. Visitation shows this William as father of another William m. Ella Handslagh or Hansacre who had 2 sons: William who married Johanna Sudeley and Ralph, who married _ Hanlow, father of the heiress Elizabeth.
2 BE1883 Boteler identifies the following William's wife as Joane Sudeley, dau of John, Lord Sudeley, but does not report having a son by her, only his dau/heiress Elizabeth. BE1883 Sudeley identifies Joan's husband as "William Boteler, of Wemme", showing them as having a son Thomas who inherited Sudeley Castle. TCP Boteler of Wem identifies the following William's wife merely as "Elizabeth" and confirms that they dspm.
3 It appears that some sites identify Joan Sudeley as second wife of this William 2nd Lord, possibly in an attempt to explain why the barony of Wemme did not pass to Thomas, son of the William who married Joane Sudeley. Joan's husband is described in TCP Sudeley as "William le Botiler Boteler, knight" which refers by note to Dugdale's 'Baronage' vol i where this William is shown as having had 2 sons both called William, the younger married to Joan Sudeley. We are suspicious about this and provisionally continue to show this 2nd William and his descendants on 'Sudeley1'.
