You asked about the religious backgrounds of the Butson name. From my research, it seems that the great preponderance of Butsons were Church of England (Protestant) if from the Cornwall area or England, some Catholic (Protestant,also)from Ireland or Protestant if from Germany or South Africa. Most Canadian and American Butsons are Protestant. The word "most" here accounts for there being a minority of many other religions, present day, in the Butson family because of inter-faith marriages and recent day conversions to Buddhism, Muslim and Jewish faiths.
