Name Meaning

English: nickname for a new arrival in a place, from Middle English newe-comen, newe-come ‘newly arrived, recently come’ (Old English nīwe + cumen, cuma). The intrusive -b- is the result of the influence of placenames ending in Old English cumb ‘valley’ (see Coombe ). No such placename as Newcombe is actually on record in Britain.

Americanized form of German Neukamm, possibly arising from a misinterpretation of its etymology as neu ‘new’ + Kamm ‘comb’ (see Neukam ).

History: According to family tradition, Capt. Andrew Newcomb was born in England in 1618 and died in Boston, MA, in 1686, leaving family who settled both in MA and in Kittery, ME. Among his descendants was the internationally renowned astronomer Simon Newcomb (1835–1909).
