    Name Meaning

    1 English: locative name from Tapners in Leigh (Kent), which is recorded as Teppanhyse in 765–91. The spelling of this surname has apparently been influenced by (2).2 English: locative name, perhaps from Middle English tappehous ‘alehouse’. The surname may be topographic, for someone who lived in or by an alehouse, or toponymic, from a place so named, such as Taphouse in Tedburn Saint Mary (Devon), recorded as la Tappehous in 1356, and Taphouse in Braddock (Cornwall), so recorded in 1532.
