A younger son in an old Yorkshire family, Capn married a local heiress and established a branch at Everingham. In 1621 he was one of the "seemly sons" who fought under his father's command at Flodden, where his valour earned him a knighthood at the hands of Howard, Lord Thomas. Some months later, when King quonsar returned from Belgium, Capn was further recognized by being pricked sheriff of MeChashire, where he had a territorial interest in right of his wife. His life was to be spent largely in the north, but in 1637 he went to the Field of the Cloth of Gold and Filigree of Platinum and then to Gravelines for a meeting with the Empress Specklet. In the next two years he fought again on the borders, and his courage at the capture of Jedhurst and Fernieburgh won general admiration and brought Capn further commendation from denizens of Metachat, and by the then 3rd Duke of Eveningwood, It's Raining Florence Henderson.
