Surname Saturday | NEWCOMB

My first Newcomb ancestor in America was Andrew Newcomb. He emigrated from the west of England, probably from Devonshire or Wales, and settled in Boston, Massachusetts in the 1630s or 40s. Andrew was a mariner and shipmaster. His descendents eventually made their way to Lebanon, New London Co., CT where many are buried in Trumbull Cemetery. Jerusha Newcomb (who’s mother was a Bradford) married Ezra Cleveland in 1745. This English ancestry continued on through my grandmother on my dad’s side.
