Malpass Family History
Malpass Name Meaning
English (Staffordshire and Gloucestershire): habitational name chiefly from either of two places called Malpas (Cheshire England and Monmouthshire Wales); perhaps also occasionally from other minor places so called in England (e.g. in Berkshire Cornwall and Yorkshire) or from various places called Malpas or Maupas in France. The placenames derive from Old French mal ‘bad’ + pas ‘passage’.
