The name dewsnap originates from a little hamlet near Chinley Derbyshire called Dewsneps. If you look on an ordanance survey map I'm sure you will find it.
The earliest recording of the the name is Thomas de Dewsnap in 1285 and Nicholas de Dewsnap in the Assize Rolls for the ounty of Cheshire. My branch of the family are from Old Glossop. And the branch dies out with my two brothers and myself. All our offsprings are daughters. Unless of course they marry Dewsnaps themselves.
Hope this may be of help to you.
