Elizabeth Butler was the sister of John Boteler. Elizabeth has one lineage to Henry II King of England 1154-1189 which is referenced in the Claiborne book by Dorman & Smith titled "Claiborne of Virginia". This however is not the only line. She is also of the lineage of Henry I, Charlemagne and William the Conqueror. Her ancestral blood is discussed in many resources.

Colonel William CLAIBORNE 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 was christened 10 Aug 1600 in Crayford, Kent, England. He died 1678 in , New Kent, Virginia. William married Elizabeth BUTLER on 1635 in , Westmorland, Virginia.

Elizabeth BUTLER [Parents] 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7 was born 1610 in Roxwell, Essex, England. She married Colonel William CLAIBORNE on 1635 in , Westmorland, Virginia.

Hon./Capt. William Claiborne married ca 1635 Elizabeth Butler, born ca 1610 in Roxwell, Essex, England. “She was the daughter of John Butler (1585 - ?) and Jane Elliott (abt. 1582 - ?) of Little Burche Hall, Roxwell, Essex, England. Elizabeth's siblings were John Butler of Kent Island, Sara Butler, ? Butler (female), and Thomas Butler, married Joan Mountsteven Butler wife of Nicholas Mountsteven, haberdasher of St. Marins at Ludgate. Elizabeth's uncle was Capt.

William & Elizabeth’s children were 1) Jane, 2) John, 3) THOMAS, 4) William, Jr. “the younger”, and 5) Leonard. William had died by Mar 1677, probably on his plantation, Romancoke.

    Elizabeth's family provides us with a deep and well documented family lineage. Her parents are John and Jane (Elliott) Boteler of Roxwell Parish, Essex, England. John’s grandfather, George Butler was from Bedfordshire, whose manors included those of Tofte and Lorings in Sharnbrook and Souldrop and his grandmother was Mary, the daughter of Richard Throckmorton of Higham Park, Northamptonshire. Through John’s grandmother, Cressett Saint John (pronounced “SinJin”), the family can claim descent several times over to Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou through his son Henry II King of England, and Hamelin Earl of Sussex through the Saint John line as well as the Neville line. Along with descent from Henry de Bohun, Earl of Hereford and signer of the Magna Carta.[12]
