Origins of surname
The name is taken from the village of Honyacombe, in Cornwall, and is derived from the Celtic combe = 'valley' and honiga = 'honeyed, sweet, fruitful' - a lovely place to come from!
John Honeycombe and Elizabeth Richards, both from Cornwall, were married in St Helier in 1826. They do not appear to have had any children in the island. From 1840 to 1856, nine children of Samuel Honeycombe and Maria Ann Warren were baptised in St Helier, after their marriage in St Saviour in 1838. At the time of his marriage Samuel was living in the parish, but he was almost certainly not born in Jersey.
