About Ralph Boteler, Knight, of Norbury
Sir Ralph le Botiler of Pulverbatch and Norbury was the 3rd son of Sir Ralph le Botiler of Codynton, Pulverbatch and Norbury, and Maud de Marmion.1
Sir Ralph le Botiler of Pulverbatch and Norbury married Hawise Gobion, daughter of Richard Gobion, before 1300.2
He petitions the King and states that the king's father granted to his father that he would pay 5 marks per annum for all his debts from the debt of Philip Marmion. He asks the king to pay he pay 100s. from that debt per annum, for himself and his heirs, to Ralph and his heirs, as he has suffered greatly in the king's service in Scotland, and holds nothing but 100s. of land which is charged with the debt, and his parceners hold £300 of land charged with the debt; and he has granted to pay them 100s per annum for all their debts. Endorsement: [None].
The petition is dated to 1307-1327 as it clearly dates to the reign of Edward II, though there appears to be no evidence to more closely date it.3
Sir Ralph le Botiler of Pulverbatch and Norbury died in March 1342.1,4
