JOHN HOLCOMBE is the first to be mentioned in the "Visitations of England". He served in the War of the Crusades, to Palestine, indications being that he participated in two of the Crusades. During the Third Crusade, while in battle, with one mighty sweep of his sword he severed the heads of three Mohammedans. This explains the significance of the four heads on the Coat of Arms which was bestowed upon him when he was meritoriously knighted for this deed of valor by King Richard. The Heraldic Office describes the Holcombe Arms as follows: "Azure field; chevron, argent, between three Turks' heads in profile, couped at shoulders or, wreathed about the temples, sable and of the second. Crest - a man's head, full faced couped at the breast proper, wreath around the temples or, and azure." The Motto "Veritas et fortitudo", in English is Truth and Courage. The effigy of the Knight Holcombe now rests in the old Abbey Church of Dorchester, England, one of the oldest abbies in England.
