He was under age at the time of his father’s death. He was under the wardship of William, earl of Ferrars. The earl paid a good sun of 100£ for this wardship and the marriage of his daughter to Sir William. This was a huge sum, which shows that the estates of the young heir were quite large. The record of this fine reads “The king the sheriff of Lincolnshire. Know ye, that for a fine of 100£, which earl William de Ferrars hath paid us to have the wardship of the lands and heir of Almeric le Boteler until their full age, with their marriage, we command you to give the said earl seisin of all the lands of the said Almeric…

When parliament is called the next year, his name does not appear. Also in the same year, Richard le Boteler of Merton granted lands to Henry’s widow, “dña Isabella quondam uxor Henrici le Boteler.” Isabella, Henry’s wife was the daughter of the first Richard le Boteler of Merton, and therefore a first cousin once removed to her husband Henry.
