As we recently found that our Yapp name only goes back 4 generations with the help of DNA. We knew that our Mathew Yapp had changed his name too Yapp we always assumed that this was because he had believed he was a Yapp from the relationship and later marriage of William Yapp to Hannah Price but it has now proven that he was in fact a King the result of liaison between Hannah Price and Thomas King! So we will be including following the King linage in this site as from now on.



If you have been blessed with the surname Yapp and want to find out more about the name family. Then please contact us we have researched our family side of the Yapp family and we are always keen to add too, or confirm what we presume to be right.

The name Yapp has had many statements made of it's meaning, some of which we are very sceptical of they were made a couple of centuries ago and no longer ring true with what we know today. You will read lots of statements of where the name was most populated but few of the have any relevance when you research them. What we have found is that the most Yapp's are from the English county of Shropshire, there are more Yapp's in the telephone book in the county of Shropshire than any where else in Great Britain. Most researches will always lead back to the Midland Welsh borders, We will discuss this topic further in pages on this site...just a taster!
