Thynne or Botfield N/A

These are the arms and crest of the family of Botfield or Botevile. The family of Thynne, of which the principal branch is that of the Marquesses of Bath, was descended, it is said, from John Botevile of Stratton, in the reigns of Edward IV and Richard III. He was known as John le Thynne, which has been derived from `The inn'. According to Clements the stamp may have belonged to Sir John Thynne of Longleat, who was the son of Sir John Thynne (d. 1580) by Christian, daughter of Sir Richard Gresham. He married Joan daughter of Sir Rowland Hayward, Lord Mayor of London. If I am right in seeing a rose for difference on the arms, it must be the stamp of a fifth son, probably theirs, and grandson of Sir John who died in 1580. In addition the branch of the Thynnes to which the Marquess of Bath belongs, and Sir John Thynne of Longleat also belonged, bears a coat of augmentation, granted at the Battle of Pinkie in 1547, quarterly with that of Botfield or Thynne.
