The surname larcombe was first found in Wiltshire 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. The language of the courts was French for the next three centuries and the Norman ambience prevailed. But Saxon surnames survived and the family name was first referenced in the year 1576 when they held estates in that shire.

Before the last few hundred years, the English language had no fast system of spelling rules. For that reason, spelling variations are commonly found in early Anglo-Saxon surnames. Over the years, many variations of the name larcombe were recorded, including Larcombe, Larcomb, Larkom, Larcom, Larcum, Larkham, Larcumb, Larcumbe, Lacombe, Lacom, Lacomb, Lacum, Lacumb and many more.
