Leo Le Boutillier

Payne's Armorial of Jersey

From a very early Norman period this family has existed in Jersey, and its name frequently occurs in the history of its native island. In its ancestral parish of Trinity, its members have filled municipal offices for centuries. A curious and pleasing instance of liberality exists in the record of a gift by one of this family, some centuries ago, of the annual sum of twelve gros (groats) to furnish with ink and paper the parochial school of Trinity, for the use of poor scholars.

The same family also made an annual donation to the same parish of a bushel of wheat to be made into bread for the Holy Communion. Its estate is taxed with the gifts to this day.
