John Buttle was born in London, England.

With the boundary line established by 1862, the men were discharged. In 1862 Buttle joined the party that surveyed a wagon road from Bute Lake toward the Cariboo. In 1864 Buttle became part of the Vancouver Island Exploring Expedition whose primary goal was to discover a paying gold field, and incidently to explore the Island.
