About Richard "Pincerna" Boteler

The Boteler , Boutellier ( original French) family name is derived from their hereditary position as the Cheif Butlers, or Cheif Stewards, for both the English and French aristocracy, thus their family crest with bottles of wine. Later their became Earls of Ormond in Ireland, their seat at Castle Kilkenny, but long before were Barons of the Marches. Robert le Pincerna+ Son: Richard Pincers Born: Bef 1086 Marriage: Unknown Died: After 1119, Cheshire, England 730

Another name for Richard was Richard Boteler. Richard Pincerna, styled Pincernius held the manor of Poulton near Pulford in Cheshire(Domesday Survey 1086)

The family of Pincerna took the name of Pincerna from the office of Butler, which they held under the earls of Chester. The office of Pincerna, seems to have been one of great honor. They appear for the first time in a written record in the Domesday survey, 1086. Through the marriage, the family acquired Warrington sometime after that.

Richard Pincerna appears in the Domesday Survey as holding the manor of Pulton near Pulford in Cheshire. It reads "Richard Pincerna holds of the earl Poytone. Edwin held it, and was a free man." His name again appears, in the time of Hugh Lupus earl of Chester, as a witness to William Malbedeng's gift to St. Werburgh's. His name appears as "Pincernarius." In 1119, he also gave to St. Werburgh the church of St. Olave in Chester and two houses in the market-place of that city.

Richard left two sons, Robert, his heir and William, who witnessed a charter of earl Hugh Lupus in 1093 and another charter of earl Randle Meschines to the city of Chester. ~Annals of the Lords of Warrington, pgs. 22-25.

This family is related to the French Lords of Cheve ( see below):

Famille noble établie en Bretagne depuis plusieurs siècles qui compte au nombre de ses membres les seigneurs de la Chèze (paroisse de Bonnœvre). Il serait superflu de rappeler ici tout ce qui a été écrit sur le blason, sur la noblesse et sur l'origine du nom de cette famille. Nous ne saurions mieux faire que de vous indiquer l'introduction de Pol Potier de Coursy en tête de son ouvrage "Nobiliaire et Armorial de Bretagne", qui a eu l'approbation de toutes les personnes compétentes en cette matière. La distinction familiale représentée ici sous forme de blason, survit à travers les siècles grâce à des précieux témoignages qui nous ont permis de rapporter les exploits et les gestes de cette noble famille. Parmi les personnages les plus marquants de cette famille on signale: un maître des comptes en 1781.

He was the Butler to the Earl of Chester. This was a very "big" job....running a castle, ordering wine and food etc. The family took the surname of Boteler or Butler. There are other families of Butlers who were Butlers to Kings etc who also took the name of Boteler. Some seem to be related to this man, and others do not. More work needed in this area

He is also found as Richard Pincerna. Pencerna is the Latin for Butler
