An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The distinguished surname Propert is of Welsh origin, and is derived from the Welsh patronymic name "Ap-Robert," which means "a son of Robert." The distinctive Welsh patronymic prefix "ab" or "ap," means "son of," but the prefix has been assimilated into the surname over the course of time.

Propert Early Origins



The surname Propert was first found in at Pant Glas near the village of Trelleck, county of Monmouthshire (Welsh: Sir Fynwy), where Thomas ap Robert (d. 1536), son of Robert ap Jenkins (d. 1509), gentleman usher of King Henry VII was found. Thomas' son Walter was the first to bear the Propert surname. Another early reference finds the family name at Chirk, on the Welsh border.
