Edward Thomas Capstacke (also spelt Capstack; October 31, 1651 – July 30, 1718) was the 10th great-grandfather of Cometan, classified as one of Cometan’s distant paternal ancestors in the McKerney family line. Born in Dent, Yorkshire (in modern-day Cumbria), Edward married Elizabeth Burton on 30th March 1678, however, this day has been put into question due to the recorded dates of two of their children being before their marriage; fornication would have been unlikely in the 17th century.
Nevertheless, Edward is recorded as having had eight children with Elizabeth, five of whom survived into adulthood. It is Edward’s eldest daughter Cicily (1673 – 1730) who links him to Cometanic ancestry.
In Cometanic ancestry, Edward is categorised as part of the 12th generation retrograde, classifying him as a distant ancestor of Cometan.
