Spelling variations of this family name include: Snape, Snappe, Snepe, Snapes and others.

First found in Oxfordshire where they held a family seat from very ancient times. Early records reveal Agnes del Snappe in a Huntingdonshire record of 1242; John atte Sneppe in the 1327 Subsidy Rolls of Sussex; and Robert de Snape in the 1355 Feet of Fines of Yorkshire. Later, we found Roger Snape in the 1525 Subsidy Rolls of Sussex. The name is derived from the Old English word "snaep" or the Old Norman word "snap" which means "dweller by the pasture."
