An excerpt from www.HouseOfNames.com archives copyright 2000 - 2017


The origins of the Anglo-Saxon name Newcomer come from its first bearer, who was a new person in town; a person who had just arrived to live in the area. The name Newcomer 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.

Newcomer Early Origins



The surname Newcomer 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.

The Great Migration



Thousands of English families in this era began to emigrate the New World in search of land and freedom from religious and political persecution. Although the passage was expensive and the ships were dark, crowded, and unsafe, those who made the voyage safely were rewarded with opportunities unavailable to them in their homeland. Research into passenger and immigration lists has revealed some of the very first Newcomers to arrive in North America:
