There is a good account of this family in Maclean's Trigg Minor. I don't have my notes on this family with me but from memory Maclean suggests that there is a connection to the dukes of Brittany, but no authority was cited for the same. There is a Geoffrey Boterel in the Breton ducal family, but I have seen nothing to connect him to the Cornish Boterels. The latter had their seat at Boterelcastel,now Boscastle in northern Cornwall. The first known male of the family was a Nicholas Boterell according to Maclean. His son William married Alice daughter of Robert Corbet and was therefore an uncle by marriage of Rainald or Reginald, earl of Cornwall.

In the next generation I have William (II) living 1160 and 1187 married to Isabella, widow of both Warin FitzGerald and Geoffrey de Vere and daughter of Ellis de Say, lord of Clun. The following three generations I have as:
-- William (III) de Boterell, d. 1221, married Sibella, surname not known
-- Reginald de Bottreaux, d. 1273, married to Matilda, surname not known (Matilda married secondly to Richard Hywish)
-- Sir William (IV) Bottreaux, d. 1301, married to Dionisia Champernowne.

Sibella married Sir William de Botreaux Knight, son of William de Botrerel Sheriff of Devonshire and Isabel de Say.193 (Sir William de Botreaux Knight was born about 1177 in Boscastle, Cornwall, England and died after 1242 in England.)
