Origins of surname

This surname was given to an inhabitant of a tiny hamlet of the same name in Dorset, named as the farm of someone called Guppa.

Early records

Although there is a Guppy marriage on record in St Brelade in 1753, it was not until 1839 that a family became established and baptism records started to appear in the St Helier register.
