Capps Genealogy & History

Capps stems from the pre-seventh-century Old English word caep, meaning a cap or head covering. It is an occupational name for someone who was a maker of headgear; with the addition of the letter S, it becomes the son of a hat maker. The Capps were granted land from William the Conqueror in Lincolnshire for their valor in the Battle of Hastings in 1066. Capps family history mention William Cappa in 1111 as the first known recording of the name in Early London Names.
