Origins of surname
We have found no specific reference to the origin of Crapp, but it is almost certainly a variant of Crapper, which is an occupational surname for a picker of fruit or vegetables or a reaper of corn. The derivation is from the old English word cropp meaning 'head of a plant', which in Middle English became crop'.
The first appearance of this surname in Jersey records was the baptism of Elizabeth Crapper, daughter of Joseph and Elizabeth, in St Helier in 1828
