The name Williamsomb was first used by the people of an ancient Scottish tribe called the Strathclyde Britons. Williamsomb is derived from the Norman personal name William. The name literally was derived from the patronymic expression son of William.

Williamsomb Early Origins



The surname Williamsomb was first found in Peebles, where this predominantly Scottish Clan held a family seat anciently, although their interests straddled the English Scottish border and they held territories as far south as Keswick in Cumberland.
