The community evolved after Jacques Boutilier's son, James Frederick and Jacques' nephew John Coulaw Boutilier *purchased in September 20, 1794[1] from Charles Ingram's son-in-law,William Coolen, the 1500 acre Ingram Grant for 140 pounds, to be paid 20 pounds yearly. This area later became known as Boutilier's Point, likely named for James Frederick Boutilier, a patriarch of the community.

Many in the community have the last name of Boutilier /ˈbtlɪər/. It is common that one is referred to by one's first name followed by the name of one's father (e.g., Tom the son of Eric Boutilier becomes Tom Eric). For instance, Rob Boutilier, the creator of the animated television series Kid vs. Kat, is originally from Boutilier's Point.

Boutliers Point is also home to an outdoor ice hockey rink which is managed by the St. Margaret's Bay/Boutilier's Point Recreation Association. The hockey rink is located at the top of Christies Rd. and Islandview Rd.
