About the Project

The Diaper Name Study project serves as a collaborative platform to collect information on the Diaper name. The hope is that other researchers like you will join the study to help make it a valuable reference point for other genealogists who are researching or have an interest in the Diaper name.

As a One Name Study, this project is not limited to persons who are related biologically. Individual team studies can be used to branch out the research into specific methods and areas of interest, such as geographically (England Diapers), by time period (18th Century Diapers), or by topic (Diaper DNA, Diaper Occupations, Diaper Statistics). These studies may also include a number of family branches which have no immediate link with each other. Some researchers may even be motivated to go beyond the profile identification and research stage to compile fully sourced, single-family histories of some of the families they discover through this name study project.

Diaper is an uncommon surname and there are two distinct groups 1) Mid Suffolk centred around Stowmarket who where "son's of the soil" 2) Solent who where sons of the sea.

I believe that the Suffolk group all originate from four Diapers:- John, William, Hezakia, & Stephen who I can only guess left London about the mid 1600's
