Daycome Early Origins



The surname Daycome 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.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



At this time, the shores of the New World beckoned many English families that felt that the social climate in England was oppressive and lacked opportunity for change. Thousands left England at great expense in ships that were overcrowded and full of disease. A great portion of these settlers never survived the journey and even a greater number arrived sick, starving, and without a penny. The survivors, however, were often greeted with greater opportunity than they could have experienced back home. These English settlers made significant contributions to those colonies that would eventually become the United States and Canada. An examination of early immigration records and passenger ship lists revealed that people bearing the name Daycome arrived in North America very early: 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.
