The name Newcombe is of Anglo-Saxon origin. It was name for a new person in town; a person who had just arrived to live in the area. The name Newcombe 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.

Early Origins of the Newcombe family


The surname Newcombe 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.
