Col. John Butler was the son of Lieutenant Walter Butler and Deborah Dennis. His father was an officer in the British Army who had come to North America to participate in the expedition against Quebec in 1711. At the end of the campaign Walter was placed on Half-Pay, and settled in New London, Connecticut. His mother's ancestors had been in Connecticut for at least three generations.
