     Biographical Notes for Banfield Capron: No records of any Caprons have been found in Cheshire, England. There are numerous Caprons in Devon and several in Somerset. Also there are several Callenders in Devon including an Elizabeth born 1661 dau. of John. Have not made positive ID on this Elizabeth but believe her to be Banfield's wife. Therefore I believe the Holden book to be wrong in stating Banfield was from "...the north of England near Wales." and a more accurate statement to be "...the north of Devon(shire) near Wales." Found in the Proprietors' Records of Bristol Co.

     Biographical Notes for Banfield Capron , Jr.: Banfield Capron, 2d, was born in the year 1682-3 , and died August 16, 1758, being about seventy years old. Some time before his death, a violent cancer broke out on his upper lip, which ate off a part of his face, and was the cause of his death. Before that time he was a capable man, and did an abundance of hard labor for a man of his age. He was of large stature, well built, very stout, bold, resolute, and persevering in all his business ; of light complexion, blue eyes, and reddish hair. He was a mason by trade, did much work at building chimneys in the neighboring towns in Providence, and was considered in his days to be one of the best of workmen. He was a weaver, also, and did considerable at that when was not employed in other business. In those days men did the greatest part of the weaving. He married Hannah Jencks, of Pawtucket, and was the granddaughter of Joseph Jencks, who was the first settler in that place. They had twelve children, - six sons and six daughters. Philip was informed by a number of old people, who were near neighbors to his grandfather (Banfield Jr.) and his family, that they were very smart, active and handsome, while living, but a great part of them, like the flowers of a garden, young, lovely, beautiful and gay in the morning, and before noon, wither, drop and die, Nathaniel Capron, when about twenty years old, went to sea, and has not been heard of since. About four years after, as I have been informed, which would be in the year 1738, the lung fever got into the family, and were all sick with it, excepting Charles, my father and Leah, and Oliver, who was about two years old ; he was taken from the family during the sickness, and taken care of by one of his aunts. In a short time, not more than two or three months after, six children, with their mother, were dead, viz: Philip, Benjamin, Jonathan, Betsey, and Lydia. The fever was very violent, and seemed to sweep everything before it. I have been informed by a number of old people, who were neighbors and gave their assistance during the sickness, that the distresses of the family were very great indeed, and that 'my grandfather's fatigue and troubles were so great that he could scarcely retain his senses at times. At one time when the doctor came to see them , two of the family lay dead in the house, and he told the doctor that he 'did not know but he would kill all his family,' The physician was 'so grieved at being implicated as the means of their death, that he wept like a child. It was thought, however, that he used every means in his power to save their lives, according to his best skill and judgment. His name was Thayer, and he was called a very skillful physician. At a Town Meeting Banfield was chosen Grand Juror to attend at next Inferior Court to be holden at Providence on 3rd Tue this June From the Book Banfield Capron.
