Winscoom Early Origins



The surname Winscoom was first found in Gloucestershire at Winchcombe, a Cottswold town. They held a family seat there, some say, before the Norman Conquest in 1066 A.D. Winchcombe was held, at the time of the taking of the Domesday Book survey in 1086, from the chief tenant, which was Gloucester Abbey. It consisted of three mills within a small village, and was once an Anglo Saxon walled city. The town pre-dates the Conquest by over two centuries as the first listing was in 810 when it was known as Wincelcumbe. The place name literally means "valley with a bend in it" from the Old English wincel + cumb. [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
