This name came from Somerset originally, but the family which moved to Jersey in the early 19th century came from Dorset. It seems likely that two families who appear not to have been closely related but came from the same part of the county, crossed the Channel around the same time.

Origins of surname

This name is derived from a place in Somerset now called Bittiscombe but first recorded as Biteles - Cumba in the 1180 Pipe Rolls of that county. The name, which first appeared in the 12th century, comes from an old English personal name Bitel, plus 'cumb' a short, straight valley - 'Bitel's valley'. The surname from this source is first recorded in the latter half of the 12th century (see below).

Early records

The name first appeared in St Helier baptism records in 1826.
