1579 (Prerogative Court of Canterbury, Bakon 49) The Will of Edward PEN of ffyfehed, co. Somerset, England, names his sisters Agnes & Mary PEN; sist. Ales CHAMBER; and Jaone COMB; and was proved on 18 Dec. 1579 by his brother, John PEN (Genealogies of Pennsylvania Families, Genealogical Gleanings, Contributory to a History of the Family of Penn, page 552 & 553, Family Tree Maker CD#163, copyright Broderbund Software, Inc., Banner Blue Division, 1996)

Notes: Unfortunately, this abstract does not specify whether Jaone (Joan? Jane?) COMB was a sister to Edward PEN; thus we will need either a transcript or a better abstract. The 1586 will of Anthony PENNE of Pedmore, Worcestershire, EN also mentions Combs; among others, his sister "ANN COMBYE'S children William, Joane, Katherine & Philip" Might Jaone Combs have been the same as Ann PENN Combs' daughter, Joan? Is it coincidental that Abraham COMBES of Old Rappahannock Co VA & St. Mary's Co MD (in the 1660s-1680s) was "brother in Law" to John MEADORS whose wife was a Joan? Or that we have several Phillip Combs in Westmoreland & Old Rappahannock Cos VA in the late 1600s, as well as an unidentified Phillip Combs in St. Mary's MD in the mid-1650s who was overseer at one time to Thomas (& Susannah SNOW) GERRARD of St. Mary's Co MD & Westmoreland Co VA? Fifehead not yet located.
