The Aichume name has descended through the generations from the ancient Anglo-Saxon culture. Their name comes from having lived in Yorkshire. The surname Aichume is associated with the parish of Acomb, which was located on the outskirts of the city of York.

Early Origins of the Aichume family


The surname Aichume was first found in Yorkshire, at Acomb which is now a suburb within the City of York Unitary Authority. The place name is most likely derived from the Old English acum, which meant "at the oak trees." The village dates back to at least the Domesday Book where it was listed as Achum, Acum and Acun, and was land held by the Archbishop of York. The village was designated as a manor held by St. Peter. There was land enough for 8 ploughs and there were 14 rent-paying tenants. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

By 1222, the village was listed as Akum. [2]CITATION[CLOSE]

East and West Acomb, Northumberland have traditionally been quite a bit smaller than the Yorkshire village with West Acomb being the larger of the two. In both of these latter cases, the first record of the place name was with the Akum spelling in 1268. Hadrian's Wall runs about 1 mile (1.5 km), north east of Acomb, Northumberland.

Some of the first records of the family were Philip de Akum, who was registered in Yorkshire in 1210 [3]CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Aichume family to the New World and Oceana


To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Aichume were among those contributors: Robert Acom who settled in Virginia in 1642; and Thomas Acome who settled in Virginia in 1642.
