     James Butler Page 317.--In the name of God, Amen, March 18, 1759. I, JAMES BUTLER, of Richmond County, being very low and weak. My estate is to be sold in some convenient time, and from the money and the rest of my estate to my sons James and John each 2/9. To my daughter Elizabeth, wife of Charles Lafarge, 1/9, reckoning the sum of ?25 already paid to her. To my wife Mary 1/9. To my daughter Netty 1/9. The shares of my sons are to be kept by my executors to bring them up till they are fit to be put to trades. I make my friend and brother in law, Lewis Dubois, and my son in law, Charles Lafarge, executors. Witnesses, Benjamin Seaman, James Sequin, Jr., John Sequin. Proved, June 5, 1759.
James Butler was also known as Botler These two spelling variances are either bad reading of the original documentation or a typical misspelling of the Butler name. This person is BUTLER despite all the contray found on the internet. Church records I have personally seen have his name as Bolter for the first child and then Bulter for the other 2. The citiation has him as both Boster and Butler even though the source of the Bolster has yet to be seen. He was born circa 1700. He married Sara Perrin, daughter of Daniel Perrin and Elizabeth (?), circa 1727 at Staten Island, NY. James Butler married Mary Dubois circa 1740. James Butler died on 5 June 1759.
