STAMPER Family History
This is a surname of confused nationality. It may be English but with French origins, English with German origins, or German or French and Flemish. Recorded in many spellings including Stamp, Stamps, Stemp, Stempe (English), Etampe, Etampes, Stampe (French & Flemish), Stamp, Stampf, Stamper, Stampfer, and compounds such as Stamfenbach and Stampfhart (German), the origins are equally confusing. The name may be locational and originate from the French village of Etampes in the department of Seine-et-Oise in Normandy, and this is certainly the origin for many English and French name holders.
