Welcome to our Website
This is the personal Website of the Tappin Family mainly in Grimsby, North East Lincolnshire, England but also of those that have ventured further afield within the UK. Although it is entitled the "Tappin Family Website" it does of course include all branches of the family tree and their descendants that now have other surnames through marriage or otherwise. It is intended to provide a platform for family members to promote, advertise or record their individual personal or family interests. Many of us share common interests such as narrowboating and walking but other interests include genealogy, poetry writing, postcards, photography, music and church architecture and stained glass...
Pictured left (centre) is Ettie Tappin and her sons and daughters on the occasion of her 90th birthday in 2003.
The extended Tappin Family is large by today's standards, our parents having had nine children, the first-born, Janice, died as an infant, father died in 1988 aged 81 and Mother died in 2011 just a month short of her 98th birthday. Our eldest brother, Brian, died in 1991 age 54, and brother Clive died in 2008 age 69. Mother had, give or take one or two, 30 grandchildren, 40 great-grandchildren and 8 great-great-grandchildren.
This website has been produced by me, David Tappin, using www.easyinternetsolutions.co.uk for web hosting and WYSIWYG Web Builder, I profess to be nothing more than an enthusiastic amateur in website design and upkeep so when you find mistakes please tell me about them.
