Great Brickhill, a parish in the hundred of Newport (but only 2.24 miles northeast of Soulbury), and 3.34 miles northwest of Leighton Buzzard, Bedfordshire.


14 Sep 1603 Great Brickhill Parish, Buckingham. Married: Gilbert COMBE and Joane SAUNDERS. (IGI, F#: 170776, @, P#: 1611, O#: 33897, source not yet viewed)

Notes: This is the only IGI entry for any Combe in this parish. Given (a) the close proximity of this parish to Soulbury; (b) the fact that Elizabeth LOVETT, wife of John COMBE of Soulbury, was the d/o Robert & Anne SAUNDERS Lovett, and (c) the sister of Susan LOVETT, who m Francis SAUNDERS, it appears that the SAUNDERS Family has become of increasing importance to our research. Also note the numerous American Combs-Saunders marriages (a tribal migration pattern?) and the much later American Revolutionary War Soldier Gilbert COMBS of Monmouth, New Jersey (a naming pattern?).

Also note that Gilbert COMBE may be the same whose daughter, Frances, was christened in Aug 1604 in Barnet, Herts, and that Great Brickhill is only one mile south of Little Brickhill where a John MEDDEWE [MEADOW? MEADOR?] married 2 May 1632, Agnes KNIGHT (See Combe-Meador of Old Rappahannock County, Virginia
