An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2016


The name Lipscombe first arose amongst the Anglo-Saxon tribes of Britain. It is derived from their having lived in the region of Luscombe in the counties of Devon, Dorset, and Cornwall. Lipscombe is a topographic surname, which was given to a person who resided near a physical feature such as a hill, stream, church, or type of tree. Habitation names form the other broad category of surnames that were derived from place-names. They were derived from pre-existing names for towns, villages, parishes, or farmsteads. Other local names are derived from the names of houses, manors, estates, regions, and entire counties.

Lipscombe Early Origins



The surname Lipscombe was first found in Devon where they held a family seat from early times and their first records appeared on the early census rolls taken by the early Kings of Britain to determine the rate of taxation of their subjects.

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: Mors omnibus communis
Motto Translation: Death is common to all men.
