Jack Crapper and family were the first tenants of 9 Coronation Street after the house was built in 1902.

Jack worked in the Weatherfield Main pit alongside his father Albert. The mine was the site of a cave-in disaster in 1906 which buried both members of the Crapper family, and 35 others, alive. The rescue efforts were called off after two days and all missing workers were declared dead.

Jack first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
