MEM23977 - Luccombe (Place)
Please read the caveat document.
Type and Period (1)
The historic core of the village has been mapped using historic mapping available to the HER. [1-4] Domesday records that the manor of Locumba (Luccombe) was held by Queen Edith at the time of King Edward and it was then held by Ralph (de Limesi), one of the companions of William the Conqueror at the Norman invasion. The Barony of de Limesi was later divided and Luccombe came into the possession of Henry de Pynkeny. It was administered by the de Lucumes from as early as 1200 (if not earlier) until it was passed to the St John family in 1333, before passing to the Arundells in c.1477, then the Wentworths, from whom it passed to the Aclands in 1802, when it was received by Sir Thomas Dyke Acland, the 7th Baronet, under the conditions of the will of William Wentworth. Their estate was passed to the National Trust in 1944 and the latter own nearly all of the village as part of the Holnicote Estate.
