There are many weak links in that alleged lineage. As far as I can tell, there is no proof of any of my ancestors prior to Robert CAPLES of Anne Arundel Co., Md. in the 17th century. He probably was the father of Robert (b. 1717) of Baltimore Co. There is a chart in that book claiming that Robert, Sr. (b. 1654?) was brother of Benjamin (b. 1638?) and Thomas (b. 1640?). It is alleged that their father was William CAPELL, b. 1610, son of Sir Arthur CAPELL. There is supposed to be a record of William settling in St. Mary's Co., Md., but I see no proof offered that he was the father of Robert, Benjamin and Thomas - or of any other children. As time permits, I have been researching Robert (Francis?) CAPLES of Anne Arundel Co.
