As Lewis notes above, Coleshill straddles Berks and Wilts. It is also near the juncture of Berks, Wilts and Gloucester and across the Thames from Oxfordshire. There is also a Coleshill in Warwickshire, but despite the Thomas REYNOLDS of Warwickshire with ties to the Combs ofthat county, given that Phillip COMBE of Great Farringdon appears to have married in Coleshill, Berks, it is more likely that Thomas REYNOLDS resided here, too.
17 Jul 1592 Coleshill, Berkshire, England. Married: Phillippe COMBE and Elizabeth COTTRELL (IGI entry, Ba: E008822, So: 088234, Pr: 0543876, source not yet viewed)
21 Apr 1642 Coleshill, Berkshire, England. Married: Barnard COOME and Joane GOODINOUGHE (IGI entry, Ba: E008822, So: 088234, Pr: 0543876, source not yet viewed)
The 9 Apr 1620 will of Phillipe COMBE, yeoman of Great Farringdon, Berks, names, among others, his wife, Elizabeth, brother Thomas and his second son, Barnarde, and friend "Thomas REYNOLDS of Coleshill." The above Phillipe and Elizabeth COTTRELL Combe seem likely to have been the same, and their nephew, Barnard COMBE, perhaps the same who married Joane GOODINOUGHE in 1642?
This county has not yet been actively researched, but an attempt to determine if Thomas REYNOLDE of Coleshill is kin to Thomas of Warwickshire, and the bases, if any, for Thomas COMBE having named a son, Barnarde, might be well worth exploring. See also Bernard COMBE of Soulbury, Bucks, as well as Barnard ARCHDALE (great uncle of John COMBE of Soulbury).
14 Jan 1690 Coleshill, Berkshire, England. Christened: Hayward COOMES, s/o Thomas COOMES (IGI entry, B: 9 Jun 1972 PROVO Ba: C008822, E: 29 Jun 1972 PROVO So: 088234, SP: 6 Oct 1972 PROVO Pr: 0536135, source not yet viewed).
The above is the only other IGI entry located for Coleshill.
