  • Philip Boteler Esq., son and heir of Sir Philip by Elizabeth Cokayne, was one of the executors of Sir Hugh Willoughby Kt. of Wollaton, Notts, whose Will is dated 15th Sept. 1443. (40)
    • 'John Boteler, son and heir of Philip, was Sheriff of Essex and Herts in 1490, and was still living on 29th Nov. 1491, when Thomas Lovett II. of Astwell made his Will. (See p. 53.) The precise date of his death has not been discovered; for neither Will nor inquest are forthcoming, and the inscription on his tomb at Watton has lost the year of his death. (31) It can, however, be determined within narrow limits; for his widow Constance Vere died at Astwell on 16th May 1499. (See p. 55.) Constance is wrongly described in both the Histories of Hertfordshire as the daugher of ..... Downhall of Geddington, but her real parentage is stated on her monument, and is shown in the pedigree at p.51. (Richard Vere & Isabella Green)
      • John Boteler II., son and of John, mentions in his Will three children of his third marriage, who are ignored in the printed pedigrees.
      • John Butteler Esquier. Will dated 7th Sept. 1513, and written with myne own hand.
      • To my executors the issues and profits of my manors of Pulvrebach co. Salob, sele co. Herts, and Bromham co. Geds. for eight years, to be disposed at their discretion for my soul's health and for the souls of my father, my mother, and my wives.
      • My cosyn Wylliam Bensted and Maister Robert Orwell Parson of Watton to be my executors.
      • My most gracious Maister (sic) Maister Thomas Lovett to be supervisor of my Will, and I bequeathe to him a sauter book as a poor remembrance.
      • My executors, out of the profits of my said manors, to give 100 marks each for the marriages of my daughters Marie and Joys, and to five my son Richard enough to set him forth in the world.
      • Will proved 11th July 1515 [8 Holder in C.P.C.]
