About this page:

This page was put on the web on march 23, 1997. Updated December 07, 2003.

Welcome to the Tapper Page!

Welcome to the Tapper Page!

any people search on Alta Vista and other search services for their own name, probable you did too! Your name is Tapper, isn't it? I found out by all e-mail and my guest book that many people with the same family name as me have visited my home page. That's why I got the idea to set up a special page for Tapper's. This is just an attempt to collect some of you Tapper's to set up a link list to your home pages or your e-mail addresses.

To me it looks like Tapper is a common name in Sweden, Finland, England and USA. What does "tapper" mean in your language? In Swedish it means "brave, courageous, valiant, plucky"! Names like Tapper was given to soldiers in the old Swedish army.  I'm very glad to learn that Tapper in English is the barman, innkeeper, or a "server of beer" - the tappers opened barrels of beer, because this is my favorite drink! But this, this or this might be other examples. Suggestions? Other languages?

It might be of some interest to Tappers around the world. Thanks to Ralph Tapper Torbay, Nfld for the information.

The validation of the settleing of Tappers Cove by my antecedents in Torbay Newfoundland can be found in the,"history of Torbay" by Richard Codnor,ST. Johns, Newfoundland, Canada. Respectfully George Charles Tapper.

Neat idea for a Tapper homepage. I thought Tapper was not a very common name. I'm pleased to find other Tappers, as I have always been interested in tracing the origin of the name. I'm in Memphis, Tennessee (USA), but was born and raised in the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania (USA) area. I'll be checking your page from time to time to see how many new Tappers have signed on. Keep up the good work.

My family name comes from Helsinki, Finland. My parents moved to Uppsala, Sweden in 1955. I have 3 sisters and one brother. None of my family has written here yet. I know of relatives in Estonia, but I don't know them by person. Five generations ago, there was a marriage held between a Mr. Tapper, who was a seaman, and a Greece woman. The most usual misunderstanding is that people think my name is Trapper (engelska för "pälsjägare") or Papper (Swedish for "paper"). Pretty silly, I think. Best regards to all Tapper-people.

I live in Sydney, Australia. My brother's name is Michael but he isn't the one who has signed this page. What a coincidence, with Tapper being such an uncommon name. My sister is Caroline and my parents are Steve and Anne. My grandparents Howard and Rita are living south of Melbourne. I believe we originate partly from Ireland and England, but that was a number of generations ago. I am not certain yet.

Tappers of S. Devon, U.K. Descended from 17th century Richard Tapper. N.Bovey S.Devon. Earlier history not known. Someone mentions name derived from Tapster- barman. Slight elaboration- understand connected to tapping barrels (putting in taps) back in mediaeval times sounds better than barman). Great Grandpa Tapper always maintained 'we came over with the Danes c.10th century' ? Presumably raping and pillaging on the way. Perhaps they were related to those of Finland, (the brave valiant warriors) who then perhaps settled, and turned to the more mundane occupation of beer making and tapping barrels.

Date: 9.12.97 Sandra Rose (nee Tapper) (egerton* / no homepage ) wrote:

From Perth in Western Australia, quite a clan of Tappers here - all descended from Daniel Tapper who migrated from England to Australia on the "Rockingham" in 1830. His sons and their descendants have a strong family link to the port town of Fremantle, south of Perth. One son, "Captain John" was a lighterboat captain out of Fremantle and later went pearling on the NW coast of WA.

How fascinating to find a few Tappers... I've been feeling somewhat lonesome lately... now I feel curious about my kin from afar! I don't know where my Tappers came from much beyond my grandfather, who lived in Bonne Bay, Newfoundland - now the site of Gros Morne National Park. Saludos to Tappers everywhere!

Hi, My neice Wendy and I have decided to research our family name. Your Web Page is great! My father was Richard Alan Tapper born 1905 in Seattle, Washington, USA. He had a brother John. Their father was George Tapper born around 1880, TorBay, NewFoundland, Ca. - His father was Richard. We have several pictures. If anyone has any information please e-mail either Wendy or I. My grandfather George married Katheryn Doyle also from NewFoundland but I think they met in Washington. If it helps anyone we have pictures of a David Tapper next to a small airplane and a Rose Tapper - Nurse, 1924 - Brooklyn, New York. Thanks for this opportunity - my mothers family were from Malmo and Lulea.

A site just for the Tapper clan. I like it. I am the wandering member of this family. Most of my immediate relatives (Tappers that is) live in Seattle, WA, USA. I live in the Czech Republic.

I really like your site about Tapper's. I am one of the thousands of Tapper's from Newfoundland on the east of Canada. I have been doing some indepth research on Tapper's. Tapper's originated from England and moved west to settle. They first landed here in Newfoundland. the exact community was Torbay. It was named after a community of the same name in england.They moved then south to the states. This message is just to put some rest to the commotion anbout tapper's! Marcus TAPPER

I only recently began to use the Internet, and was amazed to discover this page. My name is John Tapper, and I currently live in Bristol in England. My immediate family originate in the West Midlands, and have been based in the town of Walsall for as long as I can remember.

Both my father and grandfather were named John Tapper, and my grandmother's maiden name was Elizabeth Twaites.

It would be good to hear from others in the 'family'. I was aware that there were a number of Tappers in the USA, but had no idea they were also in Sweden. Fantastic!

I too am a Tapper currently living in Calif. Usa. I was born in Kingston Jamaica. Two Tapper brothers moved from England to Jamaica, in the 1800's I think. Would love to find out more......

I and my family (Linda, Ian and Claire) now live in Camberley in Surrey in the UK (just south-west of London). I was born in Theydon Bois in Essex (north-east of London) but originally our family came from Dorset.

Tapper is a very popular name in the West Country (Dorset, Devon, Somerset and Cornwall) but is virtually unknown elsewhere in the UK. It is believed to have two possible origins. Firstly it is a trade name for an innkeeper. However, I can't believe that that many Tappers emerged out of that one profession. The other explanation is that it is thought that a large Viking community existed in the area in the 7th, 8th and 9th centuries, hence the probable origin associated with a Scandinavian name. That one seems far more likely.

My own ancestors lived in Shroton, also known as Iwerne Courtney, from the 16th century where they were farmers. The family moved south over the years and nowadays that branch of the family live in the Poole area. My own grandfather moved away from there to London at the start of this century.

I have a cousin, Ken, who lives in Sweden, so that branch at least has returned to its roots!

Interesting to read all comments from Tapper´s around the world. I had no idea that the name was common outside of Sweden. I live with my wife in Stavsjö in Sweden. We breed Icelandic horse as you can see if you go to our homepage.
