    Notes 
    • CAPRON Banfield Capron, the American immigrant, was born, it is said, at Chester, Flintshire, England. He was undoubtedly born about 1660 in the north of England. He left England as a stowaway with three other boys, each about fourteen years old. After a few years he settled in Rehoboth, now Barrington, Rhode Island, then part of Massachusetts. After twenty years he removed with a large family of children to what is now Attleboro, Massachusetts, where he purchased a large tract of land between Bungay river and the falls. A part of this farm which he cleared is now known as the Lucas Daggett place. He also had land from the estate of his first wife, who was a daughter of John Callender, who lived on the site of the house lately owned by Philip Brady. Capron owned land also in what is now Farmers Village and built his first house on the present site of the late James N. Dean's house. His second house was near the site of a house built by the late B. J. Angell, on his farm which still goes by the name of the Jacob Capron farm.
