The Edgcombe Surname Project


Y-DNA Project for those with Edgcombe and variant surnames. Edgcumbe is the name of a valley leading down to the Tamar in the parish of Milton Abbot, Devon in England. The name Edgcumbe combines the word combe, being a celtic word for valley and, it has been suggested, Eggha, a man who dwelt there. The name can be traced back to C12th and Edgcumbe manor was in Edgcombe family ownership until 1920. It is believed that all Edgcombes descend from one John Edgcombe c.1240-1285. William Edgcombe c.1210-1274, a juror in 1274, may have been the father of John Edgcombe. Aims of the DNA project. Firstly to confirm a genetic relationship to other Edgcombes and secondly to verify the paper documentation. The aim is to try to enable people, who at present cannot trace their ancestry back all that far, to find a match and make a connection with one of the established Edgcombe family branches.
