1630 Wills and Administrations. Edward COOMBE, Kingston, Bagpuze [no further entry] (Extracted by Combs Researchers Joe Kendalll and Denise Mortorff from "The Index Library Index to Wills Proved and Administrations Granted In the Court of the Archdeacon of Berks 1508-1652," ed. by W.P.W. Phillimore. London. British Record Society Limited. 1893, p. 43)

Notes: The 1619 Oxfordshire will of William COMBS, brother of John COMBS I of Sparsholt, Berkshire, names "Aunt Chrian LANGWORTH of Devonshire." Whether she was the sister of John Combs II, h/o Margaret ARCHDALE, remains unknown (research in progress), but it is possible that "Chrian" was an abbreviation for the given name of Christian or Christine; thus the records of the above parish may be significant.
