Barford, a parish in the County of Warwickshire, with Bishops Tachbrook to the northeast; Newbold Pacey to the southeast; Wasperton* to the southwest; and Sherbourne to the northwest. Barford is 3-1/2 miles northeast of Alveston; and less than 3 miles northeast of Stratford. No IGI parish extracts have been located for Barford as yet.

* Wasperton, is a parish in the Warwick division of Kingston Hundred, Warwickshire, abt 4 mi. from Stratford. (A Topographical Dictionary of England, Samuel Lewis, S. Lewis and Company, London, 1831, Vol. IV, p. 406 (excerpted)). See also below.

The 1619 Visitation of Warwickshire, Combe Family, includes "Edwardus COMBE de Wasperto'," son of John COMBE of Stratford (and daughter of BLOUNT of Worcester); husband of Anna HALES (daughter of "Stephi [Stephen] HALES de Newland in Com. Ciutatis Courntriae [Coventry]"); and father of Jocosa [Joyce], wife of Francisco [Francis] CORNWALL "de Berferd [Burford] in Com' Salop" [Shropshire]; and Anna, wife of "Rob'tus DECONS" [Robert DEACONS] of Wasperton. Edward's two daughters are listed as his daughters and co-heirs.

Edward married Anna HALES 26 Dec 1570 in Coventry, and despite the reference to Wasperton, the only records located for Edward thus far indicate he resided in Barford.

1588 Edward COMBE inherited entailed property from his father, including "the capital messuage of Ruin Clifford [in Stratford] and a watermill there in 1588...
