The surname Capulet was first found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from ancient times.

It is only in the last few hundred years that the English language has been standardized. For that reason, early Anglo-Saxon surnames like Capulet are characterized by many spelling variations. As the English language changed and incorporated elements of other European languages, even literate people changed the spelling of their names. Scribes and monks in the Middle Ages spelled names they sounded, so it is common to find several variations that refer to a single person. The variations of the name Capulet include: Caplewood, Capulwode, Capilwode, Capelwood and many more.

Many English families tired of political and religious strife left Britain for the new colonies in North Ameri ca. Although the trip itself offered no relief - conditions on the ships were extremely cramped, and many travelers arrived diseased, starving, and destitute - these immigrants believed the opportunities that awaited them were worth the risks. Once in the colonies, many of the families did indeed prosper and, in turn, made significant contributions to the culture and economies of the growing colonies. An inquiry into the early roots of North American families has revealed a number of immigrants bearing the name Capulet or a variant listed above: a number of settlers who arrived in the New World by the 19th century.
