Shirley Ferrell
Claypoole, Sir James
Hello Barry,
I am a 14th generation descendant of Sir James Claypoole of Northborough, Eng. My grandfather was Milton Haney Claypool, (his parents were William and Margaret Abigail (Goleanor) Claypool. William was born on Aug. 6, 1911 in Grainger,Tennessee U.S.A and died on April 28, 1884 in Genesco, Illinois, U.S.A. I was wondering if you or anyone knows what was the occupation of Sir James Claypoole before he purchased the Northborough Manor House?
I hope to hear from you soon.

Claypoole Manor House
Mr. Chapman,

Hello! I hope all is well and that you do not mind me posting to your profile. I would not historically post this to the website but it concerns our Claypoole family history. I am a descendant of North Claypoole, younger brother of James Claypoole who immigrated from Northborough to what today is Sussex County, Delaware (at the time was part of Pennsylvania and known then as Low Counties). This weekend I came across a post concerning our ancestor's manor house in Northborough is on the market for sale and want to share with you and other potential Claypoole cousin. You can see the posting at I am going to be flying to London, England for business and hope to travel to Northborough in early December with the hope of visiting the old family Manor. If you have any comments or suggestions, please feel free respond to this email or contact me directly at Regards, Stephen

RE: Rebecca Claypoole & Jacob Read
If you get a chance to record it, please do so. The Claypoole branches over to the Wingate line then onto King Edward I.

Did you get my email I sent you in regards to my Clayppole connection?

Claypoole Memorials
I had created a number of Claypoole memorials. Can I transfer them to you and you can sort through them as to "duplicates" or "errors". Let me know.
