Welcome to our family site

Please Note This is a new site and is in shake-down at the moment

 

This is family site we are not a business we are not marketing or selling anything and we generate NO revenue  we are the Yapp family website, we collect NO information nor do we want any information from our visitors.

Its about our family and our friends and their interests and it is just for enjoyment. Please feel free to browse our pages, I am sure that you will find something which will draw your attention. We have a variety of interesting topics and some of our webmasters favourite subjects the history of names, topics with tips and explanations. and other sites that are extremely informative.

As we recently found out that with the help of DNA our Yapp name only goes back 4 generations!  We knew that our Mathew Price had changed his name too Yapp, we had always assumed that this was because he had believed he was a Yapp from the result of an earlier relationship of Hannah Price and William Yapp, who later married. We now know 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 them 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!
