Waters' Gleanings makes the following footnote reference in regard to mention of his "Uncle John BLUNT in the will of Thomas COMBS, d 1609, Stratford-on-Avon, Warwickshire: ""From the fact that the testator refers to an uncle John BLUNTE one might infer that this John COMBE was related somehow to Thomas WILLIS of Isleworth (England) and Lynn (Mass.), whose daughter Elizabeth was the wife of our Rev. John KNEELS of Watertown, but I fail to see in this will any evidence of a relationship with the Connecticut line of the WYLLYS or WILLIS family; and yet Thomas COMBE, a nephew of the above testator, calls George WYLLYS (the younger) a kinsman, and the latter, in a letter written in 1639 (to some one in Hartford), speaks of the death of a cousin Ann COMBES. H.F.W."
Notes: The Thomas COMBS the elder to whom Waters referred was Thomas COMBS, d 1609, m (1) Mary SAVAGE; and (2) Mary BONNER, d/o Anthony BONNER of Camden and Bridget SAVAGE of Elmely, and widow of William YONGE (YOUNG), by whom she had daughter, Bridget YOUNG who later m George WYLLYS (WILLIS) of Fenny Compton, Warwickshire and New Haven, Connecticut. Thus, George WILLIS referred to Thomas Combs II as his "brother" (step-brother-in-law). Thus far, the only place name of Isleworth located thus far is Isleworth Parish, Middlesex, England, which was only a mile from Twickenham, where we find Combs-Palmer marriages - the latter of which are found among both the Combs of Warwickshire and the Archdale-Combs Families of Stafford, London et al.
Marriage Source, except where otherwise stated, is: Middlesex Marriages. Note: All post-1699 marriages have not yet been added in to our parish reports. See Later Marriages of Middlesex for the remainder.
Geographical Sources, except where otherwise stated are A Topographical Dictionary of England, Samuel Lewis, S. Lewis and Company, London, 1831, and parishinfo.mdb by by Terry Lawson, Gerry Lawson and Derek Boys.
