Re: The TAPPs of Shepshed, Leicestershire, England
Hi Jonathan - As you see they have my name listed as John Tapp and it really is John Ronald Tapp from which I use the name Ron.The Tapps from Shepshed as far as I know from my research, all the ancestors originated from Colebrooke in Devon about the 1820s when 4 brothers and a sister moved to Leicestershire and settled in Shepshed ( Sheepshead, the name has changed over time ). I have the Ancestors dating back to about 1680 when a Matthew Tapp marries in Colebrooke, Devon. My E-Mail Address is ettrick @telus.netMy Father was born in Shepshed in the 1890s.
Good to hear from you - Ron.
