Butler, Western Australia
Butler is an outer suburb of Perth, Western Australia, located 41 kilometres north of Perth's central business district. It is part of the City of Wanneroo local government area, it forms the majority of the Brighton Estate, a large commercial and residential development by Satterley. Butler is bordered to the west by Jindalee and Quinns Rocks, to the south by Merriwa and Ridgewood and to the north by Alkimos; the Joondalup railway line reserve separates Butler from the rural locality of Nowergup in the east.2 kilometres west of Butler is the Indian Ocean. "Butler" was approved by the Shire of Wanneroo for the area in 1979 in honour of John Butler, the first recorded explorer of the Wanneroo and Lake Joondalup areas in 1834. The marketing of the "Brighton Estate" in Butler by Satterley, with many amenities and establishments adopting the "Brighton" nameplate, has led to Brighton's becoming synonymous with Butler and causing confusion amongst residents and sight-seers alike. Residents submitted a petition to the City of Wanneroo in 2003 for the suburb's name to be permanently changed to Brighton.
The request was rejected on account of duplication with many other places across Australia named Brighton, as well as the name's lacking both historical and cultural significance within the area. Although Butler was gazetted in 1979, it remained unpopulated bushland until the early 2000s, with no landmarks or conventional roads providing direct access to the area; the Butler-Ridgewood Agreed Local Structure Plan was approved by the City of Wanneroo in 2002, allowing early subdivision and development of the site to commence in 2003 by Satterley, the principal investor in the suburb. Satterley's Brighton Estate plan takes up all of Butler and extends into the neighbouring suburbs of Ridgewood and Alkimos. Butler contains four sub-divisional estates within the Brighton area. Over $120 million was spent on landscaping, civil construction and community infrastructure to create the Seahaven and The Green estates, the Brighton Village Shopping Centre on Marmion Avenue and the Central Park Precinct.
At the ABS 2006 census, Butler had a population of 5,056. This represents a huge increase, as Butler's population was negligible during the 2001 census just five years earlier; the population is predicted to continue growing at a remarkable rate, peaking at 12,903 in 2016. Only 53.4% of Butler's population were born in Australia, with 25.4% born in the United Kingdom, a figure in line with other nearby suburbs such as Quinns Rocks and Mindarie. The average age of Butler's residents is 28, a young population compared to the Australian national average of 37. Income levels are substantially above the national average, with a median household income of $1,205 per week, compared to $1,027 per week nationally. 49.8% declared a denomination of Christianity as their religion, with Anglicanism being the most popular at 24.3%. Butler contains Westpoint Coastal Church. 26.6% of the population declared no religion. Butler was established by the Department of Planning as a "district centre" in their Directions 2031 urban expansion plan, highlighting it as a centre for commercial activity and public services, secondary to the nearby town centres of Clarkson and Alkimos.
Kingsbridge Boulevard, one of the core distributor roads through Butler, contains a strip of shops and public services, as well as a large Coles supermarket, providing for the suburb's major shopping needs. Along this stretch is a pub, The Cornerstone Tavern, opened in 2010, which provides nightlife and entertainment functions for the whole area from Butler to Jindalee. Most of Butler's amenities are located at the western edge of the area, adjacent to Marmion Avenue, while eastern Butler remains residential in character. Butler contains several parks in various places throughout the area, including a strip of parkland running all the way down Kingsbridge Boulevard; the Butler Community Centre is located in south Butler. Butler contains three state K-6 primary schools, Butler Primary School, East Butler Primary School and John Butler Primary College.

A butler is a domestic worker in a large household. In great houses, the household is sometimes divided into departments with the butler in charge of the dining room, wine cellar, pantry; some have charge of the entire parlour floor, housekeepers caring for the entire house and its appearance. A butler is male, in charge of male servants, while a housekeeper is a woman, in charge of female servants. Traditionally, male servants were of higher status than female servants; the butler, as the senior male servant, has the highest servant status. He can sometimes function as a chauffeur. In older houses where the butler is the most senior worker, titles such as majordomo, butler administrator, house manager, staff manager, chief of staff, staff captain, estate manager and head of household staff are sometimes given; the precise duties of the employee will vary to some extent in line with the title given, but more in line with the requirements of the individual employer. In the grandest homes or when the employer owns more than one residence, there is sometimes an estate manager of higher rank than the butler.
The butler can be served by a head footman or footboy called the under-butler. The word "butler" comes from Anglo-Norman buteler, variant form of Old Norman *butelier, corresponding to Old French botellier "officer in charge of the king's wine bottles", derived of boteille "bottle", Modern French bouteille, itself from Gallo-Romance BUTICULA "bottle"; the role of the butler, for centuries, has been that of the chief steward of a household, the attendant entrusted with the care and serving of wine and other bottled beverages which in ancient times might have represented a considerable portion of the household's assets. In Britain, the butler was a middle-ranking member of the staff of a grand household. In the 17th and 18th centuries, the butler became the senior male, member of a household's staff in the grandest households. However, there was sometimes a steward who ran the outside estate and financial affairs, rather than just the household, and, senior to the butler in social status into the 19th century.
Butlers used always to be attired in a special uniform, distinct from the livery of junior servants, but today a butler is more to wear a business suit or business casual clothing and appear in uniform only on special occasions. A silverman or silver butler has expertise and professional knowledge of the management, secure storage and cleaning of all silverware, associated tableware and other paraphernalia for use at military and other special functions; the modern role of the butler has evolved from earlier roles that were concerned with the care and serving of alcoholic beverages. From ancient through medieval times, alcoholic beverages were chiefly stored first in earthenware vessels later in wooden barrels, rather than in glass bottles; the care of these assets was therefore reserved for trusted slaves, although the job could go to free persons because of heredity-based class lines or the inheritance of trades. The biblical book of Genesis contains a reference to a role precursive to modern butlers.
The early Hebrew Joseph interpreted a dream of Pharaoh's שקה, most translated into English as "chief butler" or "chief cup-bearer". In ancient Greece and Rome, it was nearly always slaves who were charged with the care and service of wine, while during the Medieval Era the pincerna filled the role within the noble court; the English word "butler" itself comes from the Middle English word boteler, from Anglo-Norman buteler, itself from Old Norman butelier, corresponding to Old French botellier, Modern French bouteiller, before that from Medieval Latin butticula. The modern English "butler" thus relates both to casks; the European butler emerged as a middle-ranking member of the servants of a great house, in charge of the buttery. While this is so for household butlers, those with the same title but in service to the Crown enjoyed a position of administrative power and were only minimally involved with various stores; the Steward of the Elizabethan era was more akin to the butler that emerged.
Throughout the 19th century and the Victorian era, as the number of butlers and other domestic servants increased in various countries, the butler became a senior male servant of a household's staff. By this time he was in charge of the more modern wine cellar, the "buttery" or pantry as it came to be called, which supplied bread, butter and other basic provisions, the ewery, which contained napkins and basins for washing and shaving. In the grandest households there was sometimes an Estate Steward or other senior steward who oversaw the butler and his duties. Mrs Beeton's Book of Household Management, a manual published in Britain in 1861, reported: The number of the male domestics in a family varies according to the wealth and position of the master, from the owner of the ducal mansion, with a retinue of attendants, at the head of, the chamberlain and house-steward, to the occupier of the humbler house, where a single footman, or the odd man-of-all-work, is the only male retainer; the majority of gentlemen's establishments comprise a servant out of livery, or butler, a footman, coachman, or coachman and groom, where the horses exceed two or three.
Butler is a city and the county seat of Butler County in the U. S. state of Pennsylvania. It is located 35 miles north of part of the Greater Pittsburgh Region; as of the 2010 census, the city population was 13,757. Butler was named the 7th best small town in America by Smithsonian magazine in May 2012. Butler was named for Maj. Gen. Richard Butler, who fell at the Battle of the Wabash known as St. Clair's Defeat, in western Ohio in 1791. In 1803 John and Samuel Cunningham became the first settlers in the village of Butler. After settling in Butler, the two brothers laid out the community by drawing up plots of land for more incoming settlers. By 1817, the community was incorporated into a borough; the first settlers were driving westward from Connecticut. In 1802 the German immigrants began arriving, with Detmar Basse settling in Jackson Township in 1802 and founding Zelienople the following year. After George Rapp arrived in 1805 and founded Harmony, larger numbers of settlers followed. John A. Roebling settled Saxonburg in 1832, by which time most of the county was filled with German settlers.
Throughout most of its history, the city of Butler has been a major manufacturing and industrial center. In 1902, the Standard Steel Car Company opened one of its largest railcar manufacturing facilities in Butler, it was here. Diamond Jim Brady, the legendary financier and gemophile, got his start here in 1902 when he established the Standard Steel Car Company, which merged with the Pullman Palace Car Company in 1934 to create Pullman-Standard, a monopoly, broken by the government. About 2,500 workers produced 60 steel-bed railroad cars per day in 1902. Eastern European immigrants were attracted to the area in the early 20th century by the reliable jobs which sometimes included rent-free company housing; the company constructed a baseball park, the home of a New York Yankees farm team. It made artillery and naval shells during World War II; the Pullman-Standard plant closed in 1982, was demolished in 2005. The site is now occupied by a strip mall, as well as the new Butler Transit Authority intermodal facility.
In 2011 the BTA moved a covered hopper railcar to the bus terminal in recognition of the former Pullman-Standard plant. The car was built at the facility in 1974; the American Austin Car Company was headquartered in the borough. The firm changed its name to American Bantam Car Company. Bantam was an early producer of small fuel-efficient vehicles through the 1930s; the modern Jeep was created by American Bantam and the first prototypes were manufactured at the Butler facility. Big military contracts went to Willys and Ford, while the Bantam factory had failed by World War II. Today, a monument in the plaza across from the courthouse commemorates Bantam's creation of the Jeep. Butler is home to one of the early Ford dealerships, still extant; the Rainbow Rubber Company, which in the late 1930s made precise "Rubrtoy" replicas of Oldsmobiles along with many other rubber toys was located in Butler. In the 1950s, Butler became one of the first cities to install bells at crosswalks, a common practice today.
Pedestrians could cross in either direction. The city was linked to Pittsburgh via Mars, Pennsylvania, in 1907 by the Pittsburgh and Butler Street Railway, to Evans City in 1908 by the Pittsburgh, Harmony and New Castle Railway, both interurban trolley lines; the Mars route closed in April 1931, followed by the Evans City line on August 15, 1931, with the trolleys replaced by buses. Since the 1970s the borough's economy has changed drastically. Manufacturing has declined and good paying jobs are much rarer. According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 2.7 square miles, all land. The Connoquenessing Creek, ranked the second most polluted waterway in the U. S. in 2000, flows through the city. As of the census of 2000, there were 15,121 people, 6,740 households, 3,626 families residing in the city; the population density was 5,611.3 people per square mile.
