The Dackombe family probably originated in Normandy, but the earliest British records show that in 1205 the family possessed the manor of Daccombe near Torquay in Devon. No doubt the family name was taken from this manor. Thomas Daccombe gave up the manor of Daccombe to Torre Abbey in Torquay and moved to the Isle of Wight where he possessed land in Chale in the south of the Island from 1227.  Later the family were at Carisbrooke and at Fairley near Newport and at Brading in the east of the Island.


Around 1370 John Daccombe of Brading bought the manor of Chilworth near Southampton and Thomas Daccombe, possibly his brother acquired the manor of Stepleton in Dorset by marriage. About one hundred years later, John Daccombe of Chilworth acquired the Stepleton manor and founded the Dackombe families of Stepleton, Corfe Castle, Blandford and Winterbourne Kingston in Dorset, from which modern families are probably derived.


Perhaps the most notable member of the family was Sir John Dackombe (c1570-1618) who was secretary to Robert Cecil, Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster and knighted by James 1 in 1617. A later member was Master of the Pewterer’s Company in London


Further information of the origin of the family and of the descendants of John of Stepleton can be found in two articles published in SDNQ in March and September 2011. More information particularly for 19th and 20th century descendants can be found on John Terry’s website.

John-16 was probably the grandson of John Daccombe of Brading, Isle of Wight, who acquired Chilworth manor around 1370


John-15, son of John of Chilworth, acquired Steepleton around 1470.  He had four sons; the eldest remained at Steepleton;  the second probably founded of the Corfe Castle branch of the family; a fourth son Henry founded families in Dorset and Lincoln. 


The third son, John-14, was at Blandford Forum and Horton in Dorset; he had a son John and a grandson Richard who moved to Motcombe in the same county.


Richard’s ambitious eldest son, John-12, was sent to London to study law, and became steward and secretary to Robert Cecil.  Later, he was knighted and appointed Chancellor of the Duchy of Lancaster by James I. 


Sir John died after only two years as chancellor, before he could amass any serious fortune.  His son John led a quiet life in London and his grandson, Robert, sought to prevent a descent into poverty by marrying an heiress, Mary Wyke.   Unfortunately, Mary incurred the displeasure of her mother and was disinherited from the bulk of her estate.  Ironically a large portion of this estate was eventually inherited by a descendant of Mary – Daniel Dackombe-5


Part of this estate consisted of property at Marchwiel in Denbighshire.  Robert’s son, John, lived at Marchwiel while attempting to claim ownership – which eventually failed. 


John’s son, Aquila, was apprenticed in London and set up as a pewterer, but was declared bankrupt in 1761.  His son also named Aquila, and also a pewterer, restored the family finances and in 1818 at the age of 71 he was elected master of the Pewterer’s company.


His son Daniel became a printer in South London and inherited a valuable estate of land in Ashtead Surrey from the mother of Mary Wyke.  At his death he divided his money between his surviving children.  His daughter Arabella however who had married a baker, Christopher Brookbanks, died before him aged only 29, and did not benefit from his will.
