Samuel Capewell (January 22, 1826 - 1865) was a British born line and letter engraver, and publisher, active in New York in the middle part of the 19th century. Capewell was born in Birmingham, England and emigrated to New York in 1850. Much of his work is associated with Christopher Kimmel, a German immigrant engraver with whom he lived at a Manhattan boarding house in 1850. They joined forced under the imprint of 'Capewell and Kimmel', around 1853 - probably to capitalize on the Industry of All Nations Exhibition (1853 - 1854) then drawing people to New York. The firm later acquired the lucrative contract to print fashion image for Goudy's Magazine. They published prolifically until 1863, when Capewell, then living in Newark, New Jersey, was drafted to fight in the American Civil War. Although there is no record of Capewell in the Soldiers and Sailors database, there is an 1865 life insurance claim for him with Mutual Life, suggesting he must have died in that year.
