     The author states in the Preface, somewhat whimsically, "Having off and on for a dozen years hunted up the dead and the living, the lost and strayed Willcombs who have chosen to spell, or have allowed others to spell their name, Wilcom, Welcom, Wilcum, Welcum, Wilcome, Welcome, Wilcomb, Welcomb, Wilcombe, Welcombe, Willcomb, Wellcomb, Willcombe, Wellcombe, Willicomb, Wellicomb, Willicome, Wellicome, Willicombe Wellicombe and Woolicombe, I respectfully request the public to pass a law making it a criminal offence for any member of the family to spell their name in any other way than 'WILLCOMB.' Twenty-one ways of spelling the name is about twenty too many-for the comfort of the family genealogist, at least. It is hard enough for him to untangle them from the Wicoms, Wickhams, Whitcombs, and kindred names."

     The earliest immigrant with the name discussed in this book is Richard Willcomb of the Isle of Shoals, New Hampshire.  His son, Zeccheus Willcomb settled in Ipswich, Massachusetts in about 1699.  It is the three orphan children of Zeccheus whose descendants are detailed in this book.
