    Also called Matthew Button. Emigrated 1633. Boston, then Ipswich, then Haverhill. He was a coastal trader. His Great Migration Begins entry contains an account of his long and fruitless legal battle with the basically terrible John Godfrey.

    "[Button Families of America identifies] Matthias Button as 'a son of Thomas Button of Harrold, Bedford Co., England. He was baptized there October 11, 1607.' Such a baptism does exist, but there is no other evidence in support of this claim. Furthermore, since our Matthias is called at one point a 'Dutchman,' he presumably derived from a Germanic-speaking region on the Continent and not from England." [Robert Charles Anderson, The Great Migration Begins, citation details below.]
