Banfield Capron
Posted by: Phil DeSilva (ID *****9844) Date: April 21, 2004 at 15:58:34

My 6th great grandfather was Banfield Capron. Family tradition says he came from "the north of England near Wales". For years researchers assumed this meant Cheshire. Several years ago on a hunch I looked at some Devonshire records and found a few Caprons. I also found an Elizabeth Callender which was his wife's name. I also noted that there serveral Banfield families there as well.

I now am working on the premise that the family story should have said "the north of Devon near Wales" and that Banfield was possibly a family name. Maybe his mother's or grandmother's maiden names.

Banfield Capron was born circa 1660 and went to America about 1674.

I would appreciate any and all help with finding the parents of Banfield Capron.
