Note: The 16 year gap between Sarah's baptism and Rebekah's may indicate that Sarah's date was a typographical error. Given the presence of the given name of Ephraim among Northern Combs; however, these may also provide a "clue" to research in that area.


Ireland


Cork

"CROMWELL had placed English and Irish commerce on an equal footing; but early in the reign of Charles II. [Charles II 29 May 1660 - 6 Feb 1685 (but reckoned from 30 Jan 1649)] an Act was passed, with the result that all export trade from Ireland to the colonies was forbidden, as was also the import of Irish cattle into England. Dreadful distress all over Ireland followed immediately, for the people could find no market for their produce. When the cattle trade ceased, much of the land had been turned into sheep walks. A large and increasing woolen trade and manufacture now sprang up, so that it became one of the chief industries of Ireland; whereupon the English merchants, fearful for their own trade, in 1699, succeeded in having passed an Act which forbade the export of woolen goods from Ireland, and thus ruined the wool trade of the Island. About 40,000 industrious Protestant workmen were thus thrown out of employment and reduced to poverty; 20,000 of these emigrated to America. Many of those that remained suffered all the misery of famine. Subsequently, almost all branches of Irish industry were interfered with and suppressed by England. (Bolles, II., 129)

"As an example of this distress, may be cited the instance of Samuel COMBE, of Cork, one of the Irish Friends who came over with his family to Philadelphia about 1709. In his certificate of removal, signed 5 Mo. 26, 1709, the Friends of Cork say, "ye sayd Samuel being a bristall [England] man came over into this Country [Ireland] with his wife som time after ye Wars ended to settle in Corke and follow ye Cooping trade and although he was observed to be a Laborious painful man ye world favoured him not with success. We hope and Desire it may be better in that Countrey where we suppose workmen of that Calling are no so plenty as in this nor materials to worke on so hard to be obtained as here." (Bolles, II., 129) Again, the Friends of Waterford, in a certificate, dated 2 Mo. 13, 1712, sent to Philadelphia, for William MOORE, say, "A great Reson of his Removeall is for want of a good Imploy his trade being bad here."1 (Immigration of Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, Albert Cook Myers, Swarthmore, PA, 1902, "Economic Causes," pp. 46-7)

"At times the landlords became very oppressive, raising the rents all they possibly could, regardless of what the tenants had done to make the land valuable. Much land was held on long leases, and when these expired the rates of renewal were made almost prohibitive, many tracts of land being secured by the Celtic-Irish, who were ready to give almost any price to recover possession of the soil. (Rutty, 316) The Friends of Cork, in a certificate, [p.48] dated 5 Mo. 17, 1710, sent to Philadelphia for Samuel MASSEY, tallow chandler and soap boiler, say: "The cheife motive Represented to us for his Remove is ye want of trade to answer ye great Rents here and charges of his family wch he hopes will be easier to him in that Country he is Industrious and Carefull, and his Conversation orderly having a wife and five children besides servants." Pemberton Papers (MSS.), III., 61, in Library of Historical Society of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia. (Immigration of Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, Albert Cook Myers, Swarthmore, PA, 1902)

"Samuel COMBE, "Late of ye Citty Corke, Cooper, having transported himselfe and family to Pensilvania at Such time as severall friends of this place were Removing to that Country and not knowing he Should goe with them, they Layd their Intentions of going before our meeting time nor Season afterwards did not offer for his getting a Certificate to Cary with him wherefore Since his arrivall there he having writ unto a friend here to procure one for him." Said Samuel being a Bristol man, "came over into this Country with his wife Some time after ye Wars ended to settle in Corke and follow ye Cooping trade and although he was observed to be a Laborious painfull man, ye world favoured him not with Success we hope and desire it may be better in that country where we suppose workmen of that Calling are not so plenty as in this nor materials to worke on Soe hard to be obtained as here." Clear in relation to marriage. Received 2 Mo. 28, 1710. (Immigration of Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, Albert Cook Myers, Swarthmore, PA, 1902)

(Immigration of Irish Quakers into Pennsylvania, Albert Cook Myers, Swarthmore, PA, 1902, Some Extracts from Records of Lurgan Monthly Meeting, Ireland, etc., p. ?)

Samuel Robbins, Jr. married Mary Rogers, daughter of Robert Rogers and they removed to Hamilton Township, Butler Co. Ohio.

The Crosswicks Friends took the following notice of Robbins' marriage on September 02, 1779:

"The reparative meeting of Chesterfield Quakers informs that Samuel Robbins has gone out and married with a woman not of our religious meetings.

Aaron Ivins and John Combs are appointed to inform him of the charges against him and if he does not condemn the same he will be testify'd against."

"John Combs, Sr, an educated man with some knowledge of the law, left his farm in New Jersey and set out for Ohio. John and Elizabeth Combs left New Jersey in 1800 and settled in Butler Co, Ohio.

"Returning to New Jersey from time to time to settle his affairs, John Combs, Sr. from 1813 to 1816, rented his farm in Monmouth County to a man by the name of Lewis Gordon."

VOLUME III, NEW YORK

Containing every item of genealogical value found in all records and minutes (known to be in existence) of all meetings of all grades ever organized in New York City and on Long Island (1657 to the present time) including both Hicksite and Orthodox groups of the New York Yearly Meeting of the Society of Friends.

The material in this volume consists of data of genealogical interest recorded in the books of four monthly meetings covering the activities of the members of twenty-two Meetings for Worship and other meetings in New York City and Long Island. These records are supplemented by information found in family bibles of early Long Island Quakers; also by burial registers and tombstone data from several burial grounds, Quaker and non-Quaker. Births, marriages, deaths, and certificates of removal are grouped together by meeting and arranged in alphabetical order under the family name. About 370 pages are devoted to the important New York City Monthly Meeting; smaller sections cover the Flushing, Westbury, and Jericho Monthly Meetings. Unusual importance is attached to this book in that every item in the entire volume was extracted from original books of records and minutes and alphabetized by John Cox, Jr., author of Quakerism in the City of New York, 1657-1930 (1930).

Philadelphia Co, PA

Philadelphia MM

26 May 1688 John McComb unmarried 6mo 19, 1688, from William Stockdale. at Phil 5mo 26, 1688 (Extracted by Barbara Rivas from Quaker Arrivals At Philadelphia 1682-1750: Philadelphia County, PA)

25 May 1709 - no date Samuel COMBE received on certificate from Corke three weeks meeting dated 25 May 1709 (Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy, Volume 2, Pennsylvania, William Wade Hinshaw, Edwards Bros., Ann Arbor, MI, 1938)

Notes: The above "Corke" was Cork MM in Ireland During roughly this same time period, the Philadelphia MM also received on certificate from Cork [a.k.a. Corke] MM: John CAMM (dated 23 Jun 1708, rec. 26 Sep 1708); Mary CAMM, wife of John (dated 23 Jun 1708, rec. 31 Oct 1708); Caleb JACOB (dated 23 Jun 1708, rec. 26 Sep 1708); Elizabeth JACOB, wife of Caleb (dated 23 Jun 1708, rec. 26 Sep 1708). Also note: This same source also lists Caleb JACOB and wife, Elishabe, as having been granted a certificate to Bristol MM, England on 30 Nov 1718. The 1st record of Caleb JACOB clearly specifies Cork MM, Ire. A later Cork, IR, entry includes Samuel and Sarah MASSEY (Sarah d/o Thos. WIGHT) and their 5 children (dated 17 May 1710, but 18 May 1710 in minutes, and rec. 25 Mar 1711); and Sarah MASSEY received on certificate from Ireland [sic], dated 25 Mar 1711. One John KNIGHT, s/o Thomas, was received 28 Jan 1712 on a certificate from Cork MM dated 22 Aug 1711. Yet another record (meeting date not stated) indicates that one Martha GRIFFITTS [GRIFFITH?] produced a certificate from Cork MM, Ire., and was directed to Kingstowne, Jamaica, dated 06 Jun 1709, her ship having "put into this harbour by contrary winds." The earliest reference to Cork noted appears to be the record of Edward SCULL who was received on certificate on 30 Mar 1707 from the Cork MM, Ireland, dated 09 Jul 1706. Is it coincidence that Samuel COMBE and John CAMM both came from Cork? Could John CAMM have been a.k.a. COMBE? (No other CAMM entries in this source).

30 Jul 1781 Salem MM [Salem Co, NJ] COOMBS, Ruth (late MEAD) dismissed for marrying contrary to discipline (Extracted by Combs Researcher Kate C. DiBlassio from Encyclopedia of American Quaker Genealogy by Wm. Wade Hinshaw, Volume 11)

Notes: From Combs Researcher Susan Voigt. Ruth Mead Coombs (born in Loudoun Co, VA, July 17, 1758) was married to Joshua Coombs (born in NJ June 27, 1757) on April 25, 1780 in the Pittsgrove Baptist Church, Daretown, Salem County, NJ. Thus, the reason for her dismissal. Ruth is my fifth great grandmother and I would love to find out which group of Coombs these two grandparents belong. I believe their youngest daughter Mary (my fourth great grandmother) had a most interesting religious experience as a young girl. I have the original page from a Christian magazine that describes her experience.
The actual dates mentioned above were provided to me by Mena Mead and originally compiled by Jeanne H. Bonnet who researched the Coombs and Higbee families. This information is reposited in the Gloucester Historical Society, Woodbury, NJ.
