Hi Bill, sorry to take so long in replying. The Capener certainly sound like they are from the same family although there are many Capners/Capeners in these areas). These people were actually part of some research I did for a gentleman who is in New York, I do know he has found relations in Nebraska and Canada. Since I have had to stop researching I have not had too much contact with him and have mailed most of the information I had too him. I will have a look and see what information I still have (which may take a few days as I am decorating-so things are packed away) and I will try the gentleman's e-mail address(if it is still the correct one) and see if he is able to help. His actually family line is Shires/Spires/Shears and Capener is a marriage line. His family came from Chilvers Coton Warwickshire, but were nearly all married in Leicestershire, which is all I know without checking any records I have left.

Sorry I can't be more helpful but I will contact you in a few days to advise if I can find anything of more use to you.
Kind Regards Tricia
