The UK Caperton Collection is the newest Caperton Society Collection. It has been common Caperton lore that the Capertons come from Across the pond in the early 1700's, we have just never been able to find real proof of this. According to the Elmwood Manuscript, John Caperton came here from Ireland following family intrigue.

Census The first UK Census to record names was in 1841. Starting in 1851 and to date, censuses in the United Kingdom have also recorded relationships. I have located Capertons' in each of the censuses starting with 1841. The most recent census available to the public is the 1901 Census.

Marcia Behnke has recently been doing some extraordinary digging into our UK roots and has uncovered a growing amount of data related to the Caperton name.
