Re: Liverpool England/Trinidad Henry Stevens Tappin

In Reply to: Liverpool England/Trinidad Henry Stevens Tappin by Christina Collins of 48

Dear CC,

Found the following on Henry Stephen Tappin, my maternal GGF and thought you would be interested.

Henry Stephen Tappin b. 1850 London, Middlesex, Eng.
Occupation: Match Manufacturer (founded Trinidad Match 1887)
Married: Elizabeth Ann b. 1854 London, Middlesex, Eng.
1 Susan Maria b. 1876 Gloucester
2 Stephen Henry b. 1877 Gloucester
3 Henry Stephen b. 1880 Liverpool
note: if this is true for the DOB and Henry S. Tappin II
died 1971, NY, this would make him 91 at death.

By 1875 the family has moved to Gloucester and have two children there. And between 1877-1879 they have moved to Liverpool. The following maps give the location in Liverpool.

The other children must have been born on Trinidad, and should include:
4 Joseph
5 Charles William
6 William Charles (my GF)Mabel Winifred Tappin Raper
7 Mabel

The name Tappin is of Saxon origin, being brought into southern England sometime between 5th and 9th century. The original meaning refers to a tribal retainer or village warrior. The name is most prevalent in the west of London, in the counties of Buckinghamshire and Oxfordshire. The county name of Middlesex comes from the words middle saxon, and this area seems to have been the most northerly extent of Saxon England.

I would like to know if anyone has additional information on the Tappin family of Trinidad, and if anyone has an idea on who the parents of Henry Stephen Tappin are.

Regards, Wayne Raper
