A Coat of Arms granted to the family in 1693 in the county of Wiltshire has the blazon of a gold shield thereon a blue bend between two foxes' heads erased gules. The crest being an arm and hand couped grasping a broken lance gules. The first recorded spelling of the family name is shown to be that of Agnes Titcomb, which was dated February 2nd 1548, at St Andrew's, Ogbourne, Wiltshire, during the reign of King Edward V1, known as 'The Boy King', 1547 - 1553.
