The full title of the book tells the contents: "Genealogical Memoir of the Newcomb Family containing records of Nearly Every Person of the Name in America from 1635 to 1874. Also the First Generation of Children Descended from Females Who Have Lost the Name Newcomb By Marriage, with Notices of the Family in England During the Past 700 Years."
The following is excerpted from the book: "1 Capt. ANDREW NEWCOMB:
"Of the early history of Capt. Andrew Newcomb, whose name is given above, comparatively little is known; but from the records information has been obtained by which some idea may he formed of the man who appears to have been the progenitor of the largest branch of the Newcomb family in America. That he was born in England is quite certain; that he emigrated from the "west of England," perhaps Devonshire or Wales, nearly all traditions declare. Beside tradition, however, there are other reasons that make it probable that such was the case. The date of his arrival in this country is not definitely known, but it is quite probable that he was among the earliest settlers of New England.
First mention of him is made in 1663, in Boston, Mass., when and where he married his 2d wife Grace, widow of William Rix or Ricks; he was at that time a mariner or sea captain, and it is quite probable that this had been his occupation from youth, although there is no record to show it."
