An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The name Dunkone first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the village of Duncombe, in Durham. There is also a Duncombe in Lancashire which is in the north country too. This local name was originally derived from the Old English word dun, which literally means hill. The second part of the name, comb was originally derived from the Old English word cumb, which refers to a short, straight valley. Therefore Duncombe was literally a hill in a short, straight valley.

Dunkone Early Origins



The surname Dunkone was first found in Buckinghamshire where early records show Richard de Ingen held a barony in this shire since the Domesday Book. The name evolved through many changes; Vitalis D'Ingen reign of King Henry I, which lasted from 1216 to 1272 to Ralph Dungun who was Lord of Tingewick (Rotuli Hundredorum.) From this latter reference, the name was listed as Dunguns, Dengaines, Dungems and then gradually was changed to Duncombe, the more popular spelling since the 16th century. "The manor-house of Tangley [in Wonersh, Surrey], originally a hunting-box of King John's, was in 1585 converted into a residence for the family of Sir Francis Duncombe." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

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 Dunkone arrived in North America very early: Joe Duncomb who arrived in Virginia in 1635; John Duncombe settled in Virginia in 1637; Richard Duncombe settled in Virginia in 1660; Thomas Duncombe settled in Virginia in 1653..
