On 08 Jul 1630 at Soulbury, Buckinghamshire, Elizabeth LOVETT, daughter of Sir Robert and Anne SAUNDERS Lovett of Liscombe, Soulbury, Bucks, married John COMBE, son of John and Margaret ARCHDALE Combe of St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, London, the latter a member of the Drapers Guild. No earlier association between the Combe and Lovett families has been discovered as yet, but in 1640, Francis LOVETT, son of Sir Robert, was apprenticed as a Draper; in 1643, Elizabeth's father, Sir Robert, died in Sparsholt, Berks (to where the Combes had removed in 1641-2); 1646, Sir Robert's son, Christopher, was apprenticed as a Draper; and in 1656, Elizabeth Elizabeth LOVETT Combe, now a widow and living in Oxfordshire, apprenticed her son Archdale to her brother, Christopher, who by 1658 and at least through 1663, was residing in Dublin, Ireland.
This study of the Lovetts of England began as an attempt to determine the descendants of Archdale COMBE, but has grown to encompass all early LOVETTS of England. Our primary Lovett researcher is Denise Mortorff, who has been ably aided by fellow Combs &c. Researchers Vince Griffith, Joe Kendalll and others. Research is still in progress and readers are encouraged to bookmark this report and check back frequently for updates.

Note: Numerous additional Lovett records are located in our English and Irish Combs Counties, searchable using our Combs &c. Search Engines. Also note that Combs-Lovett research "mothers out" in the mid-1600s.
