Daccomb Early Origins



The surname Daccomb was first found in South Devon at Daccombe, a hamlet near Coffinswell which sits in the Daccombe or Aller Brook drainage basin. The manor of Doccombe, Daccombe, or Dockham, in the parish of Moreton Hampstead in Devonshire was well established over the years and still formed part of the possessions of the church of Canterbury in the 19th century. However, one of the earliest records of the surname was found in the parish of Brading on the Isle of Wight at Park Manor, where John Daccombe and his coparceners were holding half a knight's fee there in 1346. At the beginning of the 14th century Thomas Gatcombe was listed as owner of Park Manor but many believe that his surname should have been Daccombe. Another Thomas Daccombe was High Sheriff of Somerset and Dorset in 1397.

Daccomb Spelling Variations



Sound was what guided spelling in the essentially pre-literate Middle Ages, so one person's name was often recorded under several variations during a single lifetime. Also, before the advent of the printing press and the first dictionaries, the English language was not standardized. Therefore, spelling variations were common, even among the names of the most literate people. Known variations of the Daccomb family name include Daccomb, Daccombe, Daycome, Dackome, Dackombe, Daicomb, Daicombe, Dacombe, Dacomb, Dacum, Dacumb and many more.

The Great Migration



For political, religious, and economic reasons, thousands of English families boarded ships for Ireland, Canada, the America colonies, and many of smaller tropical colonies in the hope of finding better lives abroad. Although the passage on the cramped, dank ships caused many to arrive in the New World diseased and starving, those families that survived the trip often went on to make valuable contributions to those new societies to which they arrived. Early immigrants bearing the Daccomb surname or a spelling variation of the name include: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe. Migrants settled in the eastern seaboard from Newfoundland, to Maine, to Virginia, the Carolinas, and to the islands..

Motto

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: Virtutis robore robor
Motto Translation: Strong is an oak in virtue's strength.
