    WILLIAM LE BOTILER of Wem and Oversley, next brother and heir, born 11 June 1274. He had livery of his brother's lands 8 April 1296, and having served in the wars with Scotland, was summoned to Parliament 10 March 1307/8 to 10 October 1325, by writs directed Willelmo le Botiller (or sometimes le Butiller) de Wemme, whereby he be held to have become LORD LE BOTILLER.

    He married 1stly, before 1298, Beatrice, who was living in I305-06. He married, 2ndly, before February 1315/6, Ela daughter and coheir of Roger OF HERDEBURGH. He died 1334, before 14 September. His widow was living 5 July 1343, and died s.p.m. [Complete Peerage II:232, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    Note: According to Some Correction to CP, William and his 2nd wife were survived by two sons Edmund & Edward, and the male line (by the 2nd wife) did not die out until the death of Edward.


    William Boteler, in the 24th Edward I [1296], was in ward to Walter de Langton, lord treasurer of England, and Walter de Beauchamp, of Alcester, steward of the king's household. This feudal lord obtaining renown in the Scottish wars of the period, was summoned to parliament as a Baron from 10 March, 1308, to 10 October, 1325. His lordship m. Ankeret, dau. of Griffin, and had an only son, William, his successor. He m. 2ndly, Ela, dau. and co-heiress of Roger de Herdeburgh, by whom he had two sons, Edmund and Edward, who both died issueless, and four daus., viz., Ankeret, m. to John, Lord Strange, of Blackmere; Ida, m. to Wm. Trussell; Alice, m. to Nicholas Langford; Dionyse, m. to Hugh de Cokesey. He d. in 1334, and was s. by his eldest son, William Boteler, 2nd Baron Boteler. [Sir Bernard Burke, Dormant, Abeyant, Forfeited and Extinct Peerages, Burke's Peerage, Ltd., London, 1883, p. 63, Boteler, Barons Boteler, of Oversley and Wemme]


    NOTE: There is an error here in Burke, for he states that William married Ankeret, dau. of Griffin, whereas Ankeret was, in fact, William's mother, not his wife. Burke states, regarding William's father, "William Boteler, who, in the lifetime of his father, had m. Ankaret, niece of James de Auldithley." These two Ankaret's are one in the same person, for she was the daughter of Gruffydd ap Madog by Emma de Audley, sister of James of Aldithley. I have changed my records to indicate the wife of William, the son, is Beatrice, as found on CD100, Automated Archives, Automated Family Pedigrees #1, the reference for which is given as NCP II :320-3.
