      BUTLER FAMILY HISTORY

      The eldest of them, the 5th Earl, was a prominent Lancastrian. Though governor of Ireland for several periods, he spent most of his life in England where Henry VI created him Earl of Wiltshire, a Knight of the Garter and Lord Treasurer. Inevitably he partook in the dreary battles which later came to be known as the Wars of the Roses--St Alban's, Wakefield, Mortimer's Cross and, bloodiest of all, Towton. After the Yorkist triumph at Towton, he was executed, aged about 40, and his head was set upon London Bridge for all to see. Moreover, he and his brothers were attainted. So the fortunes of the family were at a low ebb when Edward IV came to the throne. [Butler Family History]
