Origins of surname

This name is found throughout France and most researchers believe that it has its origins in the Germanic personal name Boto, from bod = 'messenger'. However, it is also thought possible that it comes from bouton French for button, either indicating a button merchant or someone with boutons sur le visage, which translates as 'spots on the face'.

Early records

The name first appears in the St Helier baptism register in the mid 1650s.
