In the following year they were described as admirals--the first use of the term in England. In 1296 he commanded 94 ships taken from ports between Harwich and King's Lynn, the great majority from Yarmouth." [Royal Ancestry]

    He has been claimed by some (including CP volume XIV) as an illegitimate son of Edward I. William Addams Reitwiesner comments here. A useful overview of diverse opinions is here. If you have an NEHGS membership, F. N. Craig's "The Parentage of John Boutetourt (died 1324)" (The American Genealogist 63:3, July 1988, p. 145), which established the prevailing modern view that John Botetourt was a son of Guy Botetourt, can be read here.
