Estcumbe Early Origins



The surname Estcumbe was first found in Somerset where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor. The Saxon influence of English history diminished after the Battle of Hastings in 1066.

Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Estcumbe family emigrate to North America: the name represented in many forms and recorded from the mid 17th century in the great migration from Europe.
