The name Newcolm is an ancient Anglo-Saxon name that was given to a person who was a new person in town; a person who had just arrived to live in the area. The name Newcolm is derived from the Old English elements niwe, which means new, and cumen, which means come. The name is therefore transliterated as "newly come." Nickname surnames were frequently the result of a spontaneous reaction to a particular occasion or event.

Newcolm Early Origins

The Great Migration



To escape the unstable social climate in England of this time, many families boarded ships for the New World with the hope of finding land, opportunity, and greater religious and political freedom. Although the voyages were expensive, crowded, and difficult, those families that arrived often found greater opportunities and freedoms than they could have experienced at home. Many of those families went on to make significant contributions to the rapidly developing colonies in which they settled. Early North American records indicate many people bearing the name Newcolm were among those contributors: William Newcome, who settled in Virginia in 1623; Andrew Newcomb, who settled in Maine in 1630; Francis Newcom, who came to New England in 1635 with his wife Rachel and two children.
