Hi, my whole family was from East Ham/ Upton Park, East London so this may/may not be relevant to you. My name is Lucy Georgina Tappin. I am 24. My father, 60, is Stephen John Tappin (now divorced from my mother Christine Tappin, formerly Richardson). My grandfather (who died around when I was only 6 months old) was Stephen Montague Wallis Tappin (builder), married Mabel Elizabeth Tappin (formerly Evans) who is still alive and kicking at 93! My great grandfather was Ben Tappin (also a builder).
We now live in Essex. If this rings any bells with your family tree then please let me know and I shall get more info from my nan!
