Dackombe Early Origins



The surname Dackombe 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.

Dackombe Spelling Variations



Until quite recently, the English language has lacked a definite system of spelling rules. Consequently, Anglo-Saxon surnames are characterized by a multitude of spelling variations. Changes in Anglo-Saxon names were influenced by the evolution of the English language, as it incorporated elements of French, Latin, and other languages. Although Medieval scribes and church officials recorded names as they sounded, so it is common to find one person referred to by several different spellings of his surname, even the most literate people varied the spelling of their own names. Variations of the name Dackombe include Daccomb, Daccombe, Daycome, Dackome, Dackombe, Daicomb, Daicombe, Dacombe, Dacomb, Dacum, Dacumb and many more.

The Great Migration



Searching for a better life, many English families migrated to British colonies. Unfortunately, the majority of them traveled under extremely harsh conditions: overcrowding on the ships caused the majority of the immigrants to arrive diseased, famished, and destitute from the long journey across the ocean. For those families that arrived safely, modest prosperity was attainable, and many went on to make invaluable contributions to the development of the cultures of the new colonies. Research into the origins of individual families in North America revealed records of the immigration of a number of people bearing the name Dackombe 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..

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.
