The ancestors of the bearers of the Aclomb family name are thought have lived in ancient Anglo-Saxon England. They were first found in either of two parishes called Aclom in the county of Yorkshire.

Aclomb Early Origins



The surname Aclomb was first found in the north Riding of Yorkshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Aclam, an ancient village with a Church, a village which dates back to the bronze age. At the time of the taking of the Domesday Book in 1086 this land was held by the Count of Mortain from the King.

Aclomb Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Aclomb include Aclom, Aclam, Acclom, Acclam, Aclome, Aclame, Acklom, Acklam, Acclame, Acclome, Acklome and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Aclomb or a variant listed above: William Andrew Acklam landed in America in 1750.
