Daycum History, Family Crest & Coats of Arms



Early Origins of the Daycum family


The surname Daycum 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 Daycum family to the New World and Oceana


Families began migrating abroad in enormous numbers because of the political and religious discontent in England. Often faced with persecution and starvation in England, the possibilities of the New World attracted many English people. Although the ocean trips took many lives, those who did get to North America were instrumental in building the necessary groundwork for what would become for new powerful nations. Some of the first immigrants to cross the Atlantic and come to North America bore the name Daycum, 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 Daycum 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.
