Hi MsMeridy,

Duncombes were all from NSW or at least originated from there. I am aware there are Duncombes in Victoria but they are not connected.

Hi Michaelw3683,
I'm a Duncombe who originates from Willenhall, United Kingdom.
Some of my family emigrated to Australia and i also have Wright's in my tree, i might be able to help anyone as my tree goes back to the early 1500s and contains alot of surnames.

I am a Duncombe descendant. As far as I can tell, all the Duncombes are related in some way as several emigrated, to the US, Bahamas, Jamaica, Autstralia, Tasmania, Bimini, Bermuda. Most share ancestors from Duncombe Farm, Barley End, Buckinghamshire, England, who were listed in 1066 Domesday Book. I have lineage unbroken to 1200s in Bucks. Interested in sharing information.
Am now researching Nehemiah Duncombe, who emigrated to Bermuda, then to Bahamas. Also doing research on David Winter Duncombe, believe I do have his ancestry back to 1200s in Bucks.

You are in email contact (Michael W from David Duncomb line in NSW) with me already.

I have the David Duncomb/e descendents in NSW & some QLD already, but did not realise that the Tasmanians plus strays were likely to be related.

I also have records of a NSW line coming from another branch (chivas(or something like that) regal- to eliminate mismatches) which my direct line do not have a connection to, plus aware of the Tasmania group of Duncomb/es.

Maybe we should develop a Duncomb/e website?

Hi Michael,
Australian David Duncomb is my g-g-g grandfather.
You ask about the parents of his mother Eleanor. I have found (in Google books)reference to a monumental inscription for her, saying "Eleanor wife of David Dncomb, of Kingston, merchant, and daughter of John and Elizth. Winter of Watchet in the county of Somerset..., d. 7 Sept 1786 in her 37th year." From "Monumental Inscriptions of Jamaica" by Philip Wright. Hope this helps.
Cheers, Phillipa

Does anyone know about the Duncombes who migrated to the Bahamas from bermuda, i was told there were two brothers

As I recall, David and Benjamin Duncombe were in Bermuda, then moved to Jamaica. I did find a Hehemiah Duncombe, went by his middle name, in Bermuda in 1696. Also a William Nehemiah Duncombe (went by his middle name) in the Bahamas; he has lots of descendants, including a branch of the Pinder family.If you email me, I can send you a link to my tree, which has this branch of Duncombes. The ancestry of these Duncombes is circumstantial, but pretty decent evidence all told. I have the lineage back to 1200s in Buckinghamshire.

Hi everyone. I am trying to trace my husbands Duncombe family tree. I am back as far as David Duncombe b.1746 married Mary Ann Wright. I would greatly appreciate any help and guidance. When I started this I didn't realise how addictive it can become :)
