Charles Butler KC (August 14, 1750 – June 2, 1832), British lawyer and miscellaneous writer, was born in London.
He was educated at Douai, and in 1775 entered at Lincoln's Inn. He had considerable practice as a conveyancer, and after the passing of the Roman Catholic Relief Act 1791 was called to the bar. In 1832 he took silk, and was made a bencher of Lincoln's Inn.
His literary activity was enormous, and the number of his published works comprises about fifty volumes. The most important of them are:
He also edited and completed the Lives of the Saints of his uncle, Alban Butler, Fearne's Essay on Contingent Remainders and Hargrave's edition of Coke upon Littleton's Laws of England (1775).
