Biddlecombe History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



The lineage of the name Biddlecombe begins with the Anglo-Saxon tribes in Britain. It is a result of when they lived in Bittiscombe, in Somerset. The placename was first recorded in 1180 in the form Bitelescumba, and experts theorize that it is derived from the Old English personal name Bitel and the word cumb, which means valley. Thus the surname Biddlecombe literally means the dweller at Bitta's valley.

The Biddlecombe Motto


The motto was originally a war cry or slogan. Mottoes first began to be shown with arms in the 14th and 15th centuries, but were not in general use until the 17th century. Thus the oldest coats of arms generally do not include a motto. Mottoes seldom form part of the grant of arms: Under most heraldic authorities, a motto is an optional component of the coat of arms, and can be added to or changed at will; many families have chosen not to display a motto.

Motto: Non Omnis Moriam
Motto Translation: Not all memory
