It should be noted that no researcher has been able to confidently ascertain the origin of the surname 'Walter' used by this family, despite much speculation and many theories.
Hubert later governed England ably. He retained the confidence of Henry II, and his sons Richard I, and John; he was immensely powerful, and became Lord Archbishop of Canterbury in 1193; Lord Chief Justice and Governor of the Kingdom during the absence of Richard I; Lord High Chancellor of England 1199; Pope’s Legate in the reign of King John. He died in 1205 in his manner of Teyham.
(It should be noted that there are many English Butler families that have not descended from this line, and some may have descended from the name Pincerna, which is Latin for butler. However we are only interested in the Irish line of Butlers, which is discussed in this document.)
: Elizabeth I descended from Thomas 7th Earl of Ormond
