Tappenden History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms




Early Origins of the Tappenden family


The surname Tappenden was first found in Kent. "An ancient Kentish family, long resident at Sittingbourne, but originally of Tappenden, otherwise Toppenden, in the parish of Smarden. " [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lowe, Mark Anthony, Patronymica Britannica, A Dictionary of Family Names of the United Kingdom. London: John Russel Smith, 1860. Print.
Unfortunately, neither Tappenden, nor Toppenden can be found today. One of the first records of the name was found in the 13th century at Faversham in Kent.
