MACOMBER 



The tradition is current in almost all the branches of the 
Macomber family that their first American ancestors were of 
Scotch origin. Hence some, after the family had been a century 
and a half or more in America, changed the spelling of the name 
to McComber, McCumber, McOmber and McUmber. There is 
evidence, however, that the ancestors knew how to spell their 
name when they came to this country, and they spelled it Macom- 
ber, as many signatures witness. 

How was the name pronounced? The records of Plymouth 
Colony for fifty years have the name "Maycumber," and so it has 
been pronounced to this day by the descendants of John Macom- 
ber of Taunton. Many of the descendants of William Macomber 
of Marshfield, pronounce the name Mac'-om-ber. This may have 
been suggested by the supposed Scotch origin, Mac, son of Com- 
ber, Kumber, or Umber. 

Some have wanted a coat-of-arms and have been easily satis- 
fied with one supplied by the artists. An artist in Troy, N. Y., 
some years ago got up a coat-of-arms to order, a blue shield with 
a yellow cross of St. George. The crest was a cat sejant, with 
the motto, "Touch not the cat hot a glove." The shield had as 
supporters the flags of Scotland and of the United States, and 
the astonishing statement was made by the artist, that the coat- 
of-arms was granted in the year 1004 for distinguished services 
to the King of Scotland and that the first of the Macomber name 
was a crusader. This clumsy forgery needs no refutation. The 
crest is that of the family McCombie. It is not worth while to 
determine where the "artist" stole the rest of it. 

Under date of 3 Apr., 1882, Charles A. Macomber of Cochesett, 
Mass., wrote to Chandler F. Macomber of West Chesterfield, 
Mass., as follows: 

It is now thirty-five or more years, since I became acquainted 
with a gentleman from England, an artist, who for a favor 
bestowed copied from one of the many books he owned on Her- 



6 MACOMBER GENEALOGY 

aldry tlie Macomber coat-of-arms, which he presented to me. As 
an explanation for the drawing the following w'ords were printed, 
— "The family of Macomber is stated by McPherson, in his his- 
tory of the Clans, to be of the McKonnochie branch of the clan of 
Campbells. Archibald Campbell McKonnochie of Komber saved 
the life of King Robert the Second of Scotland by shooting an 
arrow through the head of a wild boar, then attacking him, when 
the king gave him the Crest the family bear in memory of the 
act, and the family changed the name to Macomber." 

The arms were described as follows : "Arms, Argent, three 
dexter hands couped at the wrist, holding bunches of arrows, all 
proper, in chief, and in base the Imperial Crown of Scotland. 
Crest, a boar's head erased, having an arrow through it. of the 
proper colors. The arms are surrounded by a bordure of those 
of Campbell, viz. — gyrony of eight. Or and Sable. Motto, He 
hath sent and he hath rewarded." 

This coat-of-arms has been w'idely copied, the only change 
being the substitution of a Latin motto. His nitimur ct mnnitur, 
perhaps the original of the attempted translation above. If any- 
one will take the trouble to look in "An Ordinary of Arms Con- 
tained in the Public Register of All Arms and Bearings in Scot- 
land," by James Balfour Paul, Edinburgh, 1893, it will there be 
seen that the above coat-of-arms belongs to the Maconochie fam- 
ily of Meadowbank and that it dates from 1819. A score of fam- 
ilies have a boar's head for a crest. This "artist," too, has stolen 
a coat-of-arms from one family and a crest with slight modifi- 
cation from another. The combination he has sent to the Macoin- 
bers of the United States as the arms of their ancestor, with a 
fanciful story about Robert the Second, who died in the year 

V\s for McPherson's History of the Clans, I can find no evi- 
nce that any such book ever existed. There is a McPherson's 
"Sketches of the Clans," published some years after the artist 
wrote the above. It says nothing whatever about the Macomber 
family, neither can I find the name in any book of heraldry found 
in the libraries of Boston, or in the British Museum. London. It 
is reasonable to conclude that the Macomber family never had a 
coat-of-arms. It has gotten along in America very well without 
such an emblem of aristocratic rank. 



MACOMBER GENEALOGY 7 

The evidence is convincing that William and John Macomber 
came from Devonshire, England, or vicinity, along with the other 
settlers of Plymouth and Bristol Counties, Mass. The emigrants 
brought with them the very names of the towns from which 
they came, Plymouth, Taunton, Tiverton, Dartmouth, Falmouth, 
Barnstable, Truro, Weymouth, Plympton, Bridgewater, Dorches- 
ter, all found in the southwestern part of England. Historians 
tell us that there were no Scotch nor Irish among those first set- 
tlers. The parish registers of Devonshire would probably tell 
much about the Macomber family. From the few books accessi- 
ble I have gleaned the following interesting items. 

Sept. 14, 161 1, Thomas Macumber of St. Martin, Exeter, and 
Thomasine Staplehill of St. Stephen in the said city. See Mar- 
riage Licenses of the Diocese of Exeter, p. 24. 

John Force of the city of Exeter, gent, bachelor, about 24, and 
Anne Macomber, of same, spinster, about 22, her parents dead — 
at Harpford or Ailesboro, said County Devon, 24 Dec. 1667. — 
See London Marriage Licenses. 

Harpford and Aylesboro are small villages, near the fine 
church of Ottery St. Mary, about eight or nine miles easterly 
from Exeter. 

John Adams of Staverton licensed, Nov. 27, 161 5, to marry 
Thomasine Macombe. — Marriage licenses of Exeter, Eng. p. 47. 

Nov. 6, 1676, George Stoning of the city of Exeter, grocer, 
bachr, about 28, and Elizabeth Macumber of the same, spr, about 
25, at own disp. alleged by Edward Willoughly of St. Sepulchre's, 
Cornhill, London, Druggist, at St. Peter's, St. Davis, or St. Paul, 
in the city of Exeter. — See Allegations for Marriage Licenses 
issued by the Vicar General of the Archbishop of Canterbury, 
published by the Harleian Society, p. loi. 

The Calendar of Devonshire Wills shows that Thomas Macom- 
ber of Exeter made his will in 1697. 

It has been learned through a genealogist in Devonshire that 
the inventory of Thomas Macomber of Exeter was recorded in 
1621. He left a widow Jane. "He was a grocer in .a large way 
of business, leaving property in Ireland." — 'T found a family of 
Meacomb and Macomber in the vicinity of Ashburton and Totnes. 
The dates range from 1590 to 1630 and the names are Walter, 
Christopher, Gregory, Margaret and Edmund." 



8 MACOMBER GENEAtOGY 

These items point to Devonshire, England, as the home of the 
ancestors of the Macomber family in America. The spelling of 
the name was there as well as here, Macomber and Macumber. 

It is noticeable that Thomasine ]\Iacombe, widow probably of 
Thomas Macumber, married John Adams. Combe in old English 
means a valley and is a very frequent termination of surnames 
and names of places in Devonshire. There may have been a 
Maycombe, just as there was a May Hill and a Mayfield. Indeed 
a place called Maycomb is found in Wexford, Ireland. A place 
called Maycombe, Macombe, may have given origin to the sur- 
name Maycombe, Macombe, Maycomber, Macomber, Macumber. 
The Macombers may have originated in some place called May 
Valley. 

Others insist that the name is of Scotch origin and that some 
migration carried the name into Devonshire. I am informed that 
Harry Alfred Long's Personal and Family Names, published by 
John Menzie & Co., Edinburgh, 1883, derives the names McComb, 
McCombe, McCoombe, McComber, and McCumber from the 
Gaelic "Omish" (Thomas) and that other forms of the same name 
are McOmish, McTavish and McTanse. A Memoir of the 
Families of McCombie and Thoms, originally Mcintosh and 
McThomas, by William IMcCombie Smith, Edinburgh, 1890. 
says that McThomie, McHomie, McOmie, McOmish, ]\IcOmy, 
McComie, McCombie and Thoms, McThomas and Mcintosh, all 
are names used to designate members of the same clan. Anti- 
quarians seem to agree that the Mcintosh clan are a branch of the 
clan Chattan and that the McCombie family are a branch of the 
clan Mcintosh, taking its rise in the latter half of the fourteenth 
century. It is claimed that the founder of the clan Mcintosh was 
Shaw McDuflf, second son of the fifth Earl of Fife, who dis- 
tinguished himself in quelling a rebellion among the Moray tribes 
against Malcolm IV., about the years 1161-63. 

In 1904 Dove, Lockhart and Smart, lawyers of Edinburgh, 
wrote to Charles Sumner Macomber, lawyer of Ida Grove, Iowa, 
as follows : 

Judging from your name we should say you were undoubtedly 
a Scot by origin. The name "Macomber," in its various 
forms, "McCoombe," "McCumber," "Macomber," "McOmish," 
"McCombie" is well known here. As you are no doubt aware 



MACOMBER GENEALOGY 9 

it is claimed (and the claim we believe is generally admitted) that 
the Macombers are a branch of the clan Mcintosh — also some- 
times called the Shaws. The branch was founded by Shaw 
McDuff, second son of the fifth Earl of Fife. As you are also 
no doubt aware the clan Mcintosh was one of the clans which 
took part in the memorable duel on the North Inch of Perth. 
Vide Scott's "Fair Maid of Perth," where they are designated the 
"Clan Chattan." You will also see in Scott's "Waverly" that 
a scion of the clan, "Evan Dhu Maccombish," is one of the lead- 
ing personages.

AND HIS DESCENDANTS 



The old tradition concerning "three brothers" who came to 
America seems to be verified in the case of the Macombers, for 
WilHam was in Duxbtiry in 1638; Thomas in Plymouth in 1643; 
and John in Taunton in 1643. Xo descendants of Thomas have 
been found. Those of William are numerous/ The descendants 
of John arc traced here. 

John Macomber was admitted as a freeman and enrolled in the 
militia of Taunton in 1643. He was granted permis- 
sion to build a mill in Taunton in 1659. There were then four 
persons in his family, and there is no record of more. The name 
of his first wife has not been learned. He married, 7 Jan. 1686, 
as his second wife, Mary Babcock. He was in a military com- 
pany in 1680. He was living in 1687, as shown by a deed. 
Another deed shows that he died before 1690. He was a car- 
penter by trade. His property was equally divided between a 
daughter, Mary Staples, and a son, John Macomber. 

John Macomber, 2d, signed a deed with his father in 1672, 
showing that he was then of age. He served in military com- 
panies in 1680 and 1700 and also in Queen Anne's War in 1691. 
He married, 16 July 1678, Anna Evans, daughter of William and 
Ann (Hailstone) Evans of Taunton. 

William Evans was enrolled in the militia of Taunton in 1643 
and took the oath of fidelity there in 1657. He married Ann 
Hailstone, probably daughter of William Hailstone, who was one 
of the first purchasers of Taunton in 1637 and was living there 
in 1672. The inventory of the estate of William Evans was made 
16 Sept. 1671. He left daughters Mary and Anna. 

June 28, 1723. John Macomber. "oldest of that name in Taun- 
ton," and Anna his wife sold to their son Thomas land in Tami- 
ton on "Mill River," — See County Records at Taunton. X\T.5i. 

Jan. 5, 1724-5. .Anna Macomber, "for good cause," sold to her 
S(^n Thomas land in Taunton. Ilcr husband was then dead. 



MACOMBER GENEALOGY II 

The rights of her grandsons, Abiel and William, are protected in 
this deed. See Deeds at Taunton, XVL52. 

July 7, 1725, Anna Macomber, widow, sold to her son Thomas 
all undivided lands descended to her from her father, William 
Evans deceased and from her mother Ann Hailstone deceased. — 
See Deeds at Taunton, XVI. 178. 

March 20, 1681, Mary and Anna Evins, heirs of William Evins 
deceased, sold land to J. French for sixty pounds. Following 
the date the deed says, 'Tt is always to be understood that though 
the abovesaid Anna is Anna Macomber by her marrying of John 
Macomber, Jr., but when this abovesaid bargaine was made her 
name was Anna Evins." See Deeds at Taunton, XXVII. 128. 

Jan. 29, 1700-1, John Macomber, "son of John Macomber late 
of Taunton deceased," sold land to Nathan Walker. — See deeds 
at Taunton, XVI. 326. 

Dec. 6, 1721, John Macomber sold to his son Samuel for ^300 
the house that Samuel was living in, also other lands except one 
tract lying within the bounds of said lands known as the "old 
Beaver dam," also one-half his right in the saw mill on said land, 
also "I of a purchase right in the old township of Taunton," also 
one-half his right in Middleboro 16 shilling purchase. See 
Deeds at Taunton, XIV.84. 

Feb. 15, 1724-5, John Macomber and Samuel Macomber quit- 
claimed to Thomas Macomber all right to their father John 
Macomber's property other than that which he had given them 
by deed. See Deeds at Taunton, XVI.47. 

The will of John Macomber is dated 22 Jan. 172 1-2 and was 
probated 21 Oct. 1725. In it he names wife, children Thomas, 
John, William and Samuel, and grandchildren Abiel, William, 
Anna and Sarah. . John Macomber is mentioned as deceased in a 
deed dated 5 Jan. 1724-5. His four sons lived in Taunton.

of Taunton deeded to his oldest son, Stephen, land at "Xeck of 
Land," also his homestead on Mill River and a lot in Pine 
Swamp. His will, dated 7 June 1766, was probated 26 Feb. 1770.

John Macomber (John-, John^j, born. 18 March 16S1 in 
Taunton, was impressed as a soldier in Queen Anne's War 22 
Dec. 1701, and again 26 June 1711. He married (i) 17 March 
1707, Elizabeth, daughter of Nathaniel and Elizabeth (Rogers) 
Williams, who was born in Taunton 18 April 1686, and died 2 
May 1732. She was granddaughter of Richard Williams, called 
the "Father of Taunton," whose wife was Frances, daughter of 
John and Jane (Basset) Deighton ; also granddaughter of John 
and Ann (Churchman) Rogers and great-granddaughter of 
Thomas Rogers who came in the Mayflower.

MACOMBER GENEALOGY 131^ 

Jan. 5, 1732, John Macomber of Taunton deeded to his son 
Nathaniel one-third of his home farm, one corner being at the 
saw mill. The same day he gave to son Josiah one-third of the 
same fann. The burial ground, where rest the early generations 
of Macombers, is on Staples Street not far from the Macomber 
farm. 

The record of the family of John Macomber has been pre- 
served in a branch of his descendants now living in Augusta, 
Maine. It was, perhaps, copied from the records of Taunton 
before they were destroyed by fire in 1848. His children, all by 
the first marriage, were : 

10. Nathaniel b. 9 Feb. 1709; m. Priscilla Southworth. 

11. Josiah b. 19 Feb. 1711 ; m. Ruth Paul.

William Macomber (John-, John^), born in Taunton 31 Jan. 
1683; married, 3 January 1705-6, Sarah Holloway. He was 
impressed as a soldier 7 June 171 1. He died about 1715, and 
there is* no later record of his wife. His father's will names four 
children of his son William, viz., Abiel, William, Anna and Sarah. 
Dec. 3, 1760, there was a division of land left by Elizabeth Wil- 
liams, wife of Jonathan Williams and daughter of Thomas Leon- 
ard, Esq., late of Taunton, between her children, one of whom 
was Abiah, wife of Abiel Macomber. — See Deeds at Taunton, 
XLVII.17. 

March 20, 1 730-1, Sarah Macomber, daughter of William 

Macomber deceased, above fourteen years of age, chose her 

brother Abiel for guardian to act in settlement of her father's 

estate and of her brother William's estate, who died intestate 

-without issue. 



14 MACOMBER GENEALOGY 

Sept. 8, 1735, Jonathan Hoar petitioned the court to appoint 
a guardian for his daughter Anna, who was then seven years 
old and had a claim on the estate of John Macomber through her 
mother. 

The children of William and Sarah (Holloway) Macomber 
were : 

Abiel m. 3 May 1733, Abiah, dau. of Jonathan and Eliza- 
beth (Leonard) Williams. He died about 1735, probably s. p. 
His widow died 13 Jan. 1782, in her 69th year. 

William d. s. p. before 20 March 1730-1. 

Anna m. Jonathan Hoar. Daughter Anna, b. 1729, m. 14 
June 1744, Seth Hodges. 

Sarah, minor over 14, unmarried 20 March, 1 730-1 ; perhaps 
m. II April 1734, Judah Chase of Swansea, Mass. 



Samuel Macomber (John-, John^), born in Taunton, appears 
as grantee and grantor of land in Taunton from 1721 to 1734. 
He was probably living in 1754, when Samuel Macomber, Jr., of 
Berkeley, received a deed of land in Rehoboth. He probably 
married Sarah, dau. of Isaac and Alice (Chartley?) Pierce of 
Middleborough. Isaac Pierce, born in 1661, died in Lakeville, 
Mass., 28 Feb. 173 1-2, in the 71st year of his age, son of Abra- 
ham and Abigail (Peterson) Pierce and grandson of Abraham 
Pierce of Plymouth. His will, 1722, names a daughter, Sarah 
Macomber, who can be accounted for only as wife of Samuel 
Macomber. 

The following were probably children of Samuel Macomber. 
There may have been also daughters. 

16. Samuel b. about 1721 ; m. Zipporah Crane, 5 .\pril 1750. 

17. Job b. 1728; m. Hannah Woodward.

William iUacomber of 5ttarsl)flel6 



AND HIS DESCENDANTS 



"Will'm Maycumber, of Dorchester, cooper, is lycensed to dwell 
within this gov'ment, at Plymouth or elsewhere, upon the testy- 
mony of his good behavior hee hath brought with him." 
Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. I. p. 82. 

This is the first mention of William Macomber in America. 
The testimony of good behavior is likely to have been obtained 
from the person with whom he served his apprenticeship in learn- 
ing the trade of a cooper. The date of the above record is April 
2 1638. 

Under date of Sept. 3, 1638, are found the following records : 

"Will'm Maycumber, a cooper, is graunted an island lying on 
the north side Powder Poynt, & containing about three or four 
acres of land, provided that the committees of Duxborrow doe 
consent thereunto, and that he doe not stop the townes cattle from 
the fresh water thereupon," and "Liberty is graunted to Will'm 
Maycumber, cooper, to fetch tymber to make hoopes of for ves- 
sels for the colonies use at Clarks Island and Sagaquash." 
Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. L p. 95. 

Aug. 3, 1640, "Will'm Maycumber is granted the wood fitt for 
coopery growing upon Wood Island, to be used by him so long 
as he foUoweth his trade, and forbidding all others to cutt there 
except for the loading of boats and vessells to carry away the 
hay." Plymouth Colony Records, Vol. I. p. 159. 

He settled in Marshfield, Mass. In 1644 he was fined for 
speaking against the Indians. He was a surveyor in Marshfield 
in 1653. 

A sworn statement, made March i, 1655, gives his age as 45 
years. He was, therefore, born in 1610. Tradition says that he 
was brother to John Macomber of Taunton. In favor of this is 
the following: 

"Aug. 20, 1644, William Maycumber of Duxborrow 

sent forth to bring in John Macomber for non-appearance for 



go MACOMBER GENEALOGY , 

making allarum at Taunton." See Proprietors' Records at 
Taunton. 

A bond of administration on the estate of the late William 
Macomber of IMarshfield was given, June 6, 1670, by Ursilla 
Macomber. widow, of Marshfield, Thomas Macomber of Taun- 
ton, cooper, and Matthew Macomber of Marshfield. 

In December, 1675, Alathew Macomber of Taunton, son of 
William deceased, being twenty-five years of age or thereabouts, 
made his will, giving all his real estate to his loving brother, 
John ^Macomber, twenty shillings to his honored mother, ten 
shillings to his brother, Thomas Macomber, and ten shillings 
apiece to all his sisters unnamed. John Macomber, Jr., wks 
witness. Thomas Macomber made oath to the inventory of 
]\Iatthew Macomber's estate in 1676. See Probate Records at 
Plymouth, Mass. 

The farm occupied by William JMacomber is still in the pos- 
session of the ]\Iacomber family, being owned by his descendant 
of the ninth generation, Herbert Israel Macomber. The original 
house was a garrison house for protection against the Indians, 
the ends being brick and the rest of wood. It was burned about 
the time of the Revolutionar}' War. It stood very near to the 
house now occupied by the widow of Israel Hatch Macomber, 
which is the nearest house to the Railway Station at ^Marshfield 
Hills. The land extended down to the Bay and included the 
small island above mentioned. 

It is probable that the early generations of Marshfield Macom- 
bers were buried not far from the house where they lived, and 
near to a tomb built by William Macomber (1748-1815). This 
is south from the house above mentioned a short walk and on 
the opposite side of the road. 

It appears that William ]\Iacomber of Marshfield, born in 
1610, died about 1670, that he had wife named Ursilla and chil- 
dren above named. From varied sources have been gathered 
the names of several daughters and their marriages. That they 
belonged to William Macomber's family is an almost necessary 
inference.

SECOND GENERATION 

2 

John Macomber (William^), born in Marshfield, Mass., is 
often mentioned in the history of Taunton and is called in deeds 
"John Macomber the cooper" to distinguish him from other John 
Macombers. He married Hannah, daughter of Edward Bobbit, 
who was born 9 March, 1660. Edward Bobbit was an original 
settler in Taunton and took land in the South Purchase, now 
Berkley. During the Indian War he was obliged to flee to the 
block house in Taunton and was killed by Indians while return- 
ing to his farm. He married, 7 July 1654, Sarah, daughter of 
Miles Tarne of Boston, Mass. 

July 23, 1684, John Macomber of Taunton, cooper, acknowl- 
edged that his wife Hannah, a sister of Edward Bobbit, received 
her part of her father's estate by a deed of land "down Taunton 
River," being lot No. i, near Little River. — See Deed at Taun- 
ton, III. 574. 

John Macomber was a soldier in King William's War in 1691. 
He made his will, "being aged," 29 June, 1716. He was living 
21 Jan. 1717-8, as a deed shows. His will names children as 
follows : 

5. William b. 1684, as per deposition; m. Hannah Hoskins.

fourth part of a share of land at Dartmouth, given to him by his 
deceased father, Francis Cooke. — See Deeds at Plymouth, 
III. 169. 

The lot jvust mentioned was in the present town of Westport, 
Mass., and embraced what is now a part of the village of West- 
port Point. It was bounded easterly by the main road and west- 
erly by the west branch of Westport River. This original farm 
of one hundred and forty or more acres has been considerably 
divided, but a part of the same is still in the possession of the 
Macomber family, being owned by Charles F. Macomber. 

The will of William Macomber, dated 10 April. 171 1, and 
probated 2 July, 171 1, names wife Mary and all his children,

to have been the same William Macomber who earlier had wife 
Abiah in Taunton. A tradition remains in the family of Isaiah 
Macomber of northern Vermont, that he had an uncle who set-

MACOMBER GENEALOGY 



The work now published states all that can be learned about the 
Macombers in Devonshire, England, and a possible earlier origin in Scotland. 
It traces descendants, in the Macomber line, of John Macomber of Taunton, 
1643, and of William Macomber of Marshfield, 1638. Something is said, 
also, about the Macombers of Nova Scotia. Many public records have been 
searched, in order to make the book complete and accurate. Although not 
every branch of the family has been traced fully down to the living genera- 
. tions, it is believed that with the aid of this book every Macomber, 
McComber, McOmber and MacComber, living in the Ignited States, will be 
able to trace his lineage back to the first immigrant. 

The fullest information is concerning the early generations and no 
space is wasted in flattering the living. 

Particular effort has been made to trace Mayflower and Revolutionary 
ancestry, and most of the Macombers are fortunate in respect to such 
forebears. 

The volume is well printed by the Lewiston Journal Company, Lew- 
iston, Maine, and bound in cloth, with title on morocco. It contains 250 
pages, fully indexed. The price is ($5) five dollars, on receipt of which it 
will be sent by mail to any address. 

^<5^— Those who purchased Part First of this work, by returning the same, 

can now have the completed work, Parts First and Second bound in cloth, 
for three dollars. That is, they paid two dollars then, and by adding three 
dollars now, they get the whole work for five dollars, as at first advertised. 
Send back Part First by mail with three dollars, or send five dollars, and the 
entire work will be sent you by mail. Send orders to the author,
