    The Supple Family History

    There is no dispute but that the first Supple arrived in Ireland as one of the knights accompanying Strongbow. Philip de Capel one of Robert FitzStephens companions in the Norman invasion of Ireland in 1168, obtained a grant of Killeagh in 1172 and Capel Island was named after him. The de Capels came from Normandy to Kent and thence to Ireland.
