The ancestors of the name Ascoone date back to the days of the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. The name is derived from their residence in one of the places named Ashcombe in the counties of Berkshire, Devon, and Sussex.

In the 1800s when repairs were done, part of an old breviary (liturgical book) was found between the ceiling and the roof written in the reign of Richard II. The breviary is now on display at the British Museum. Ashcombe House, also known as Ashcombe Park, is a Georgian manor house in the parish of Berwick St John, near Salisbury, in Wiltshire.

The Great Migration



In an attempt to escape the chaos experienced in England, many English families boarded overcrowded and diseased ships sailing for the shores of North America and other British colonies. Those families hardy enough, and lucky enough, to make the passage intact were rewarded with land and a social environment less prone to religious and political persecution. Many of these families became important contributors to the young colonies in which they settled. Early immigration and passenger lists have documented some of the first Ascoones to arrive on North American shores: John Ashcomb, who arrived in Virginia in 1646; Ann Ashcomb, who arrived in Virginia in 1650; Nathaniel Ashcomb, who settled in Maryland sometime between 1650 and 1651.
