The origins of the Lishcume name come from when the Anglo-Saxon tribes ruled over Britain. The name Lishcume was originally derived from a family having lived in one of the places named Ashcombe in the counties of Berkshire, Devon, and Sussex.

Lishcume Early Origins



The surname Lishcume was first found in Devon at Ashcombe, a village and civil parish in the Teignbridge district which dates back to the Domesday Book of 1086 when it was listed as Aissecome [1]CITATION[CLOSE]

In the 1800s when repairs were done, part of an old breviary (liturgical book) was found between the ceiling and the roof written in the reign of Richard II. The breviary is now on display at the British Museum. Ashcombe House, also known as Ashcombe Park, is a Georgian manor house in the parish of Berwick St John, near Salisbury, in Wiltshire. The first house located here was built in 1686 by a local squire.

The Great Migration

The Great Migration



A great wave of immigration to the New World was the result of the enormous political and religious disarray that struck England at that time. Families left for the New World in extremely large numbers. The long journey was the end of many immigrants and many more arrived sick and starving. Still, those who made it were rewarded with an opportunity far greater than they had known at home in England. These emigrant families went on to make significant contributions to these emerging colonies in which they settled. Some of the first North American settlers carried this name or one of its variants: John Ashcomb, who arrived in Virginia in 1646; Ann Ashcomb, who arrived in Virginia in 1650; Nathaniel Ashcomb, who settled in Maryland sometime between 1650 and 1651.
