Warning! This is a new report and we've just "tumbled" some records in here, mostly re early ownership of Christian Temple Manor, and much more than just Combs, but see most land records still filed in the 1600s, 1700s and 1800s for more... Sorry! We got carried away! See also Coombs' Purchase and Green's Inheritance
