The Conwells and the Claypooles
The Conwell family of colonial days was closely connected with the Claypoole family of England, descendants of John Claypoole, knighted by King James I in 1604. His descendants, James Claypoole, of the fifth generation, landed in Philadelphia in 1683 and Norton, his brother, arrived in Lewes, Delaware in 1678. Three of Norton Claypoole’s granddaughters were connected by marriage with Yeates Conwell’s three sons. Comfort Claypoole married Lt. John Conwell. Rachel Claypoole married his younger brother, Elias Conwell. Elizabeth Claypoole married William Conwell’s eldest son Thomas.

The vessel on which they came from Europe entered Delaware Bay on April 15, 1699 and anchored at Reedy Island. They landed in Delaware, a few miles west of the town of Lewes and settled in Broadkiln Neck in Sussex County. These facts are recorded in the Conwell family bible. Tradition says that their second son, Lieutenant John Conwell, was born on the vessel in the bay the day before they landed.

"The scene may be near Lewes, Delaware, at Cape Henlopen, where the harbor pilots who guided ships safely through the shallows were brought aboard as the vessels entered Delaware Bay. Or the painting may instead depict the channel nearer the mouth of the Delaware River, perhaps at Deepwater Point.
"Storm clouds approach from the ocean. We know its direction, since the tide rolls inland here from left to right. Of the four boats shown, only the topsail schooner at the left is leaving to challenge the weather. . . . Heading upriver with the current, a nearly full-rigged merchant ship passes the schooner. The two sailors aboard the small sailboat appear to be furling its sails as the wind rises, while the sturdy fishing dinghy rowed by four men on single oars, with the coxswain reclining on nets in the stern, makes for shore."
