(It does not say exactly how the names evolved from
Eggecombe to Edgecombe to Edgecumbe. Probably some
combination of bad penmanship and underpaid scribes.)


And all I can tell you is that when it was registered with the Henry Doubleday place the spelling was Edgecombe and it isn't known who named it either.
