The ancestors of the Claypool surname lived among the ancient Anglo-Saxon
culture. The name comes from when they lived in Claypole
, a parish in the county of Lincolnshire
, near Newark.
The surname Claypool was first found in Lincolnshire
where they held a family seat
from very ancient times, some say well before the Norman Conquest
and the arrival of Duke William at Hastings in 1066 A.D.
Before English spelling was standardized a few hundred years ago, spelling variations of names were a common occurrence. Elements of Latin, French and other languages became incorporated into English through the Middle Ages, and name spellings changed even among the literate. The variations of the surname Claypool include Claypool, Claypoll, Claypole, Claypoole, Claypol and others.

A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: Edward Claypole who settled in Barbados with his daughter Abigail in 1679; James Claypoole, his wife Helena, and seven children and five servants, settled in Pennsylvania in 1683.
