Frederick County was created from unorganized territory and Prince George's Co MD in 1748; and gained from Baltimore Co in 1750. In 1776, Washington and Montgomery Cos were formed from Frederick, and Allegany Co MD from Washington in 1789 w/Garrett from Allegany in 1872.

Frederick's Northern boundaries were disputed with Pennsylvania, including in particular, Coombs Fort of the Tonoloways Settlement, which was claimed by both Maryland (Prince George> Frederick > Washington Counties), and Pennsylvania (Cumberland > Bedford Fulton Counties).

Important! Most of the identified Tonolways Records are abstracted herein, but see also Tonoloways and Cumberland and Bedford PA Reports.

There appears to have been two distinct early Combs lines in Frederick County: (1) Descendants of Richard COMBS I of Charles Co, MD, and at least one of his probable sons, Richard COMBS II of Prince George's and Frederick Cos, MD, and (2) Joseph COMBS I of the Tonoloways Settlement and his descendants. Complicating research of these two families is the fact that descendants of both Joseph I and Richard II also later resided in Loudoun Co, VA.


1749 Frederick Co, MD Petition.

"This [1749] petition thus marked the beginning of the Liberty Road, Maryland State Route 26, from Mt. Pleasant… to Taylorsville (Burnt House Woods.)… But the large number of others signing this petition shows how rapidly after 1743 the settlement grew. These included Joseph WOOD of Linganore… John PHILLIPS… John HOWARD, son of Gideon, and Philip HOWARD…Stephen RICHARDS… Patrick HOLLIGAN… James BROWN… Matthias STALCAP… Robert BIRCHFIELD… Solomon SPARKS… Charles WOOD (“Charles' Choice, 1748, beginning 'in the forks between Linganore and Comb's Woolpit Branch.' one mile east of Unionville), John BRIGHTWELL… Richard COMBS, Sr., Richard COMBS, Jr., and Dennis ENSEY (all on “Coomes His Inheritance” 1749 one mile east of Unionville”)…

TM Note: This land is in present-day Frederick County. Richard COMBS, Sr. was the presumed (undocumented) son of Richard COMBS I of Charles Co, MD, and Richard COMBS, Jr. his son. See 4 Jan 1735/6 Charles Co, MD will of Winnifred ENSEY, mother-in-law of William COMBS (also a son of Richard I), who mentions that her son, Dennis ENSEY is to “live with William COOMES until 21 years of age”; and her daughter Mary “to the care of her sister Winefred” (wife of William).

In Maryland, it is marks the county line between present-day Washington and Allegany Cos (then Frederick) with one part of the creek running along the Mason-Dixon line. The above Edward & Joseph COMBS appear to have been members of the The Tonoloways Settlement Combs Families w/Joseph possibly the same as the second Joseph of the 1755 petition.
