, where one of the first records of the name was Simon Capun was listed in the Feet of Fines in 1227.
The English language only became standardized in the last few centuries; therefore, spelling variations are common among early Anglo-Saxon names.

Capone has been recorded under many different variations, including Capon, Capun, Capoun, Caponne, Capunne, Caponn, Cappon and many more.
