Re: Knappers +Staffordshire+ 1800's to 1900's
Good Evening Leon,
My great grandfather, Daniel was born in Kidsgrove in 1827. He was a metallurgist. My grandfather, George was born in Princess End, Staffs in 1855. I believe the name Knapper originated from flint knapping and originated in Saxony Germany however I’ve yet to substantiate this. I’m currently trying to find Daniel's siblings and parents. Any information you or Eddie may have, would be very much appreciated.
