Description:
This book by Frederic A. Holden tracks the genealogy of the North American branches of the Capron family. Beginning with Banfield Capron, the first Capron to immigrate to North America in the 17th century, he tracks every descendant he was able to find up until 1859, the time of the book’s publication. Holden tracked the daughters as well as the sons because he felt they were “as much the descendants” (3), which was unusual for genealogical books at the time.

Holden himself was not a Capron by blood; this book was an effort to trace back the family of his wife. Hiram Capron provided some assistance in research and owned a copy of the book himself, which is held by the Paris Museum and Historical Society. The book contains several engraved portraits of Capron family members, including Hiram.

The copy scanned was Hiram Capron's personal copy and contains his name and the date “January, 1864” inside the front cover. There are handwritten notes and inserts containing additional information from later owners.

Phil DeSilva has used this book as the basis for an up-to-date database of Banfield Capron's descendants, which is linked to on the right.
