Major General William H Titcomb

I have been asked if anyone has any images of Major General
William H Titcomb of the 2nd Division of the Maine Militia, who lived
in Rockland, Maine?  And can anyone suggest how William
Titcomb Cobb, former Governor of Maine, got his middle name, it
appears his family lived in William H Titcomb's house (but I can't
quite find a link there).

Olive Titcomb Pote


This small circa 1850 portrait of Olive Titcomb Pote has retained its charm despite the underlying wood panel wearing through. She was born into one and married into another sea-going family from Falmouth, Maine that were shuffled by the hand of Death for three generations.
Her father died of yellow fever in Havana in 1854, while master of a brig, the Montrose. In the same year a younger brother shipped for Le Havre, but vessel and crew were never heard from again. Olive died in childbirth in 1862, age 36. Her widower, Capt. Samuel, re-married the widow of her lost younger brother.

Congratulations Mr and Mrs Jon Titcombe

Andrew & Diane Titcombe in Wigton Cumbria celebrated (joyfully) their eldest son JONATHAN ERIC's wedding to Bonnie Hostler from Cambridge The new Mr and Mrs Jon Titcombe will be living in Coalville Leicestershire when they return from a honeymoon in the USA (including 3 days in Las Vegas) The marriage service was at St John the Evangelist Church London Road Carlisle http://www.stjohnscarlisle.plus.com/ on June 25th 2011. After the service guests made their way to Keswick to the Lodore Falls Hotel for the reception. This was followed by a cruise on Derwentwater and an evening disco back in the hotel.
Bonnie is a florist in East Leake so the flowers in the church and at the wedding breakfast were beautiful. She and Jon planned the wedding so thoughtfully that every little detail was amazing down to the ducks on the place setting. All the guests were impressed and are still talking about the event
Official photos are still awaited but family photos can be seen here including a video of the first dance to a Michael Buble song !
We are sorry we couldn't invite every Titcombe or even Titcomb but, as proud parents, we invite you to look at our / their special day and share our joy
On an interesting Titcombe family note when my wife and I researched family history in Reading some years ago we noted that often the TITCOMBE name was often spelled without an E and also that many Titcombs were, in fact, OSTLERS by trade so it is fitting that Jonathan has married a girl with a family name of HOSTLER

Charles Titcomb (1805-1883)


Charles Titcomb (1805-1883), a former yankee watchmaker settled on Kaua‘i after his whaler was shipwrecked in Hawaiian waters, he started a cattle ranch in 1863 on the Kilauea Sugar Plantation he purchased the Kilauea land grant that year from Kamehameha IV.
Titcomb, who married Kanikele Kamalenui, had financed his purchase of the land grant from the sale of his 750-acre Hanalei sugar plantation to Robert C. Wyllie earlier in 1863, the lands of which Titcomb had first acquired by lease from Kamehameha III.
More details about Charles.

Margaret Titcomb (1891—1982)

Margaret Titcomb, Librarian Emeritus of Bernice P. Bishop Museum and head librarian from 1931 to 1969, died in Honolulu on August 28, 1982, at the age of 91. Miss Titcomb was born in 1891 in Denver, Colorado. She was reared by adoptive parents in Brooklyn, New York, where she graduated from Packer Collegiate Institute. She joined the American Museum of Natural History as assistant librarian in 1924, and in 1931 accepted appointment as librarian of Bishop Museum.

During her years at Bishop Museum, Margaret Titcomb brought the Museum library to a position of eminence. Working with limited resources, she used exchanges of Museum publications and an ever-increasing bibliographic knowledge gained through extensive travel plus a wide circle of colleagues in natural history, anthropology and history, to build a library of distinction in the Pacific field. Under her hand, the Museum library catalogue became a model of analytic bibliography. It was published by G. K. Hall in 1964-1969 in nine volumes and two supplements.

Margaret Titcomb was also a scholar. Her monograph, in collaboration with Mary Kawena Pukui, on the Native Uses of Fish in Hawaii was published in 1952 as Memoir No. 29 of The Polynesian Society, and was reprinted by the University of Hawaii Press in 1972. In 1969, Bishop Museum Press published her Dog and Man in the Ancient Pacific, and in 1978 Native Use of Marine Invertebrates in Old Hawaii (with Fellows, Pukui, and Devaney) appeared as a special monograph issue of Pacific Science. She earlier published a children's book on Polynesian migration, The Voyage of the Flying Bird, in 1963, which won the Dodd, Mead Librarian and Teacher Prize and was reprinted in 1970. Her translation with Harold St. John of the observations of the French botanist Gaudichard-Beaupré of the vegetation of Hawaii in 1819, is about to be published by Bishop Museum Press.

The Bishop Museum Library, over which Margaret Titcomb presided, was a port of call for virtually all Pacific historians and anthropologists of her time. With many she maintained a voluminous correspondence, and extended generous hospitality during their visits to Honolulu. J. C. Beaglehole, Phyllis Mander-Jones, Harry and Honor Maude, Père Patrick O'Reilly, Bengt Danielsson, Douglas Oliver, and E. S. C. Handy are among the many scholars she counted as both professional colleagues and friends.
Alexander Spoehr
Margaret was a direct descendant of Charles Titcomb of Thetford, VT.

John Titcomb



John Titcomb was born about 1830 in the small hamlet of Westcott at the foot of the Downs in northwest Berkshire. Little is known of his early life, but it is likely that he came from a family of shepherds. Indeed, at the age of 26 when he married, he was employed as a shepherd. It was on 11th August 1856 that John married Hannah Reade, a young woman from the village of Watchfield. Throughout their married life, they lived in a small cottage outside Watchfield, just above West Mill. John worked as a shepherd and agricultural labourer, while it seems that Hannah spent most of her life giving birth and bringing up children. The couple had seventeen children over a period of 25 years - Charles, Elizabeth Anne, John, Joseph, James, Martha Jane, Martha Rebecca, Mary Jane, Thomas, Amy, David, Albert, Walter, George and Edwin.

Titcomb jewelry

Barbara purchased a box of some old jewelry and to her surprise found 2 identical gold rectangular early victorian pins (not mourning jewelry but "affection" pins)  with blondish hair braided in each.
On the back of one it says, P Titcomb from her sister Emmeline and the other says E Titcomb from her sister Priscilla.  These 2 names coincide with the daughters of Paul Titcomb, son of General Titcomb  The pin says Emmeline but the Sewell geneology says Emeline..an engravers mistake?
Does anyone  know anything about these 2 sisters or can anyone provide any more information?

Frederick James Kealiimahiai Titcomb

Frederick James Kealiimahiai Titcomb, a retired District Court judge and former Honolulu deputy prosecuting attorney, died Friday, March 10, 2000 in Honolulu. He was 77. Born in Honolulu, Titcomb was a descendant of early U.S. settlers. He also was of Hawaiian and Chinese ancestry and his great-great-grandfather, sugar plantation owner Charles Titcomb, married into Hawaiian royalty. Frederick Titcomb graduated from St. Louis High School and was a student at Washington State College when the United States entered World War II in 1941. He dropped out of college to enlist in the Army and served in New Guinea and the Philippines. Titcomb earned a Purple Heart and two Bronze Star medals for his combat service. After the war, he returned to Washington State College and then attended Cornell University. He married, and he and his first wife, Norma, returned to Hawaii. The couple would later divorce. The family moved to San Francisco in 1953 so Titcomb could pursue a legal education at the University of California’s Hastings College of Law. To put himself through school and to support his family, Titcomb worked as a warehouseman, trucker, door-to-door salesman and night janitor at Hastings. After graduating, he returned to Hawaii and worked as a law clerk for Judge Jon Wiig. In 1956, he went to work as a city prosecutor, where he won more than 40 consecutive jury convictions. In 1960, Titcomb ran as a Republican against Dan Inouye for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Inouye won by a nearly 3-to-1 vote and two years later was elected to the Senate. In 1962, Titcomb was named a Honolulu District Court judge. In addition to practicing law, Titcomb was a member of the Screen Actor’s Guild and was frequently seen on "Hawaii Five-0." In 1983, Titcomb married Marcia Vander Zicht, who was his nurse after open-heart surgery.

Stephen Titcomb


Stephen Titcomb was instrumental in the settlement of the Sandy River Valley and the establishment of Farmington as a town. The History of Wells and Kennebunk, printed in 1875, documents Stephen Titcomb, Jr.’s birth to Stephen Titcomb, Sr. and Abigail Stone on October 3, 1752. The elder Stephen Titcomb had come to Kennebunk from Newburyport, MA. He operated a wood mill in Arundel and actively supported the colonists in the Revolution. This was Stephen Titcomb’s heritage as he prepared to establish a home in the wilderness in 1776.
Many artifacts believed to have belonged to Stephen Titcomb have been donated to the Farmington Historical Society by his descendants.
