Re: The TAPPs of Shepshed, Leicestershire, England
I've only really looked at the 1881 census, so don't have a feeling for the history of Tapps in Sheepshed, but how much do you know of them? There was (is?) a large number of Tapps in Potterspury not so far away in Northampton. Could they have come from there in some economic migration and then moved on again as the work changed?
