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

Newcumb Early Origins



The surname Newcumb 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



To escape oppression and starvation at that time, many English families left for the "open frontiers" of the New World with all its perceived opportunities. In droves people migrated to the many British colonies, those in North America in particular, paying high rates for passages in cramped, unsafe ships. Although many of the settlers did not make the long passage alive, those who did see the shores of North America perceived great opportunities before them. Many of the families that came from England went on to make essential contributions to the emerging nations of Canada and the United States. Research into various historical records revealed some of first members of the Newcumb family emigrate to North America: 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.
