The Seccombe Family in Devon

This page lists those members of the Seccombe family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children known to have died in infancy. In our line the usual spelling is Seccombe, but several other spellings appear in earlier records. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

Our Seccombe ancestors lived in Devon, in and around Buckland Monachorum. Several generations of Seccombes can be found in the registers for Buckland Monachorum, although the family actually lived in Horrabridge for many years. We have traced the line back to the marriage of John Seccombe and Emme Martin in 1706, but we do not know anything about earlier generations. Some of the maternal lines have also been traced in Buckland Monachorum and the surrounding area.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Devon unless otherwise indicated.
