Where did the English lapish family come from? What is the English lapish family crest and coat of arms? When did the lapish family first arrive in the United States? Where did the various branches of the family go? What is the lapish family history?

The lapish surname was no doubt an occupational name for someone who worked as a page. Pages were personal attendants of a nobleman.


Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the lapish family name include Lappage, Lapage, Lappadge, Lapidge, Lawpage, Lapish, Lepage and many more.

First found in Yorkshire, where they held a family seat from the Middle Ages.

For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the lapish surname or a spelling variation of the name include:
