William Caperon

Biography
The by-name 'Caperon' is from Old Norman French word for a kind of hood or cap worn by nobles. This person may be a maker or seller of such hoods or caps, or, perhaps more likely in this case, this is a nickname based on a person who had a habit of wearing such a hood or cap.
