Name Meaning

English (chiefly Bristol): status name from the Anglo-Norman French feudal term franchomme ‘free man’ ( see Free ), composed of the elements franc ‘free’ ( see Frank 2) + homme ‘man’ (Latin homo). The spelling has been altered as the result of folk etymological association with the common English place name endings -combe and -ham.
