Knapp Genealogy & History

Knapp genealogy is typically German or British. In Britain, it is a locational name deriving from the Old English word "cnoepp", meaning a hill or hilltop, which subsequently lent its name to a number of places in Devon, Hampshire, and Surrey. When German, the name originated as a nickname in the Rhineland, derived from the word Knappe, meaning boy or possibly servant. In this way it could have been an occupational surname for a servant. Knapp family history in the United States includes a number of early settlers, such as Nicholas and William Knapp, who settled in Salem, Massachusetts in 1630.
