Early Origins of the Dackomb family


The surname Dackomb 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.

Migration of the Dackomb family to the New World and Oceana

Migration of the Dackomb family to the New World and Oceana


For many English families, the political and religious disarray that shrouded England made the far away New World an attractive prospect. On cramped disease-ridden ships, thousands migrated to those British colonies that would eventually become Canada and the United States. Those hardy settlers that survived the journey often went on to make important contributions to the emerging nations in which they landed. Analysis of immigration records indicates that some of the first North American immigrants bore the name Dackomb or a variant listed above: 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..

The Dackomb Motto

The Dackomb 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.
