Early Origins of the Seacome family

The surname Seacome was first found in Cheshire where they held a family seat as Lords of the Manor of Seacombe.

The village of Seacombe is situated on Wallasey Pool, and overlooks Oxton hill, Birkenhead, &c.; it is remarkable for the salubrity of its air. [1] [2]

The place name literally means "valley by the sea' and the village dates back to at least c. 1277 when it was first listed as Scumbe. [3]

The first of the family was William de Sekom who was listed as holding lands in Lancashire in 1285. [4]

Other early records revealed a branch of the family in the parish of Creed in Cornwall. "Trewinnow, which was for some time a seat of the Seccombs, passed into the family of Trethewey." [5]
