Notes
a. Note:   ngland. His parents were James Claypoole (b: about 1532 in, Northborough,Northampton,England) and Joan Henson (b: ABT 1540 in Northborough, Northampton, England.) He held various lands including the manors of Northborough and Lolham (also called Lolsham, or Leham) Maxey and Deepingate, which were located about seven miles northwest of Peterborough. His family also held lands at Waldron Parks and Gray's Inn, London. According to Plantagenet Ancestry of Seventeenth-Century Colonists, Adam succeeded his elder brother, John, in possession of Northborough Manor about 1615. Adam married (first) Dorothy Wingfield (daughter of Robert Wingfield Esq. and Elizabeth CECIL) on September 30, 1586 in St. George's Church, Stamford, Northamptonshire, England. Lady Dorothy Wingfield was born in 1565 in Upton, Castre, Cambridgeshire, England. Her parents were Robert Wingfield and Elizabeth Cecil. It is through Dorothy Wingfield and her Wingfield-Goushill ancestors that we can trace the Dunbars back to Richard Fitzalan, the 11th Earl of Arundel (b. 1346); Richard FitzAlan's mother and paternal grandmother were both members of the powerful Plantagenet family whose ancestors were kings and queens in many European kingdoms (including King Henry III and King Henry II. Adam and Dorothy had the following issue: --- James Claypoole was born about 1587 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He was baptised on April 11, 1589 in St. Andrews Church, Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He died in 1615 in England. --- Edward Claypoole was born about 1588 in Stamford, Northamptonshire, England. He was baptised on October 18, 1591 in St. Andrews Church, Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. Edward was the oldest surviving son, who was at least thirty-six years old at the time of his father's death. It appears that he had displeased his father, since he did not inherit Northborough, but he may have had possession of Lolham, if only for his lifetime; as, upon his death, without issue, the whole of his estates passed to his next brother. --- Wingfield Claypoole was born about 1593 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He was baptised on March 2, 1593 in St. Andrews Church, Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. --- John Claypoole Sir (born in April 1595). --- Richard Claypoole was born in June 1597 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He was baptised on June 5, 1597 in Maxey, Cambridgeshire, England. He died in 1673 in England. --- Robert Claypoole was born about 1599 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He was baptised on May 20, 1599 in Maxey, Cambridgeshire, England. --- Thomas Claypoole was born about 1601 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. He was baptised on March 15, 1601 in St. Andrews Church, Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. --- Johanna Claypoole (born about 1602). --- Dorothy Claypoole was born about 1605 in Stamford, Northamptonshire, England. --- Henry Claypoole (born about 1608). --- Robert Claypoole was born in November 1613 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England.

He was buried on April 22, 1618 in St. Andrews Church, Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. --- Elizabeth Claypoole (born about 1614). --- Francis Claypoole was born about 1615 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. NOTE: When Adam Claypoole married Dorothy Wingfield, he married into a long royal line. That line includes Queens and Kings from almost all European countries. By far the most imposing of these was Charlemagne, the Emperor of the Holy Roman Empire. Adam's first wife, Dorothy Wingfield, died in 1919. Adam was married (second) to Jane Bird on September 25, 1620 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. Adam Claypoole Esq. and Jane BIRD had the following children: --- James Claypoole was born in 1621 in Northamptonshire, England. --- Adam Claypoole Esq. was born in 1622 in Northamptonshire, England. He was baptised on July 24, 1622 in Northamptonshire, England. He died in 1672 in England. of West-Deeping, Lincolnshire. --- Joane Claypoole was born on January 11, 1623 in Northamptonshire, England. Adam Claypoole died in 1634 in Northborough, Cambridgeshire, England. NOTE: The village of Northborough (or, Norborough) was first mentioned in the 12th century Northamptonshire survey. The village is located seven miles north of Peterborough in the county of Cambridgeshire, England. Northborough Hall is a medieval fortified manor house, founded by Geoffrey de la Mare (about 1329/30.)It was altered during the 17th century and was at one time moated; it is still a major example of a medieval stone defensible complex. During the English Civil War the stables were used by Roundhead troops as a barracks. A local story tells that in times of national crisis, one of the walls of the manor house is said to weep 'tears of blood' to warn the occupants of impending danger. A headless Ghost is also reputed to walk the grounds.
