(Skinner...)

Note that INKEN may be JENKIN (as transcribed by Skinner in other records herein). Mary COMBS is apparently the wife of (but possibly mother, daughter or sister) Simon COMBS who died by 1717. Christopher, godson of Edward HILLIARD (whose widow, Jane, married Daniel RAY by 7 Jan 1717 per estate account that date, which also includes Marshall and Mary LOWE, Major WATTS and Dr. SWALE), was possibly the son of Simon and Mary, who are clearly closely associated with Thomas and Frances HILLIARD Hebb, Jr. By 1719, Mary COMBS has married Henry COLBY, and Thomas and Christopher were somehow related (sons? brothers?). and (1) The 1697 Westmoreland County, Virginia will of a Zachariah HINES "bound for England" who names Simond COMBS son of Simon COMBS in his will. (2) Given the variant spellings and the given name, Christopher, more research is probably warranted re Christopher KILBY of 1662 who was gifted a cow by Ardy HILL in Lancaster County, Virginia, as witnessed by Enoch COMBS. (3) No other Dr. COME was found in this source; however, it appears that this is probably the Dr. Thomas COME found in the records of Anne Arundel Co, MD in the estate account of Major Charles HAMMOND. (4) Could Eleanor COMBS be the daughter of William COMBS, Sr. by his first wife (married William MEDLEY)? (5) The HEBB surname is also found in the 1749 St. Mary's County records of George CRAGHILL whose daughter, Mary, m Thomas Hatton COMBS, and named a daughter, Eleanor.

Also Note: Skinner transcribes the Jan 1721 records as either Simmond COMBES or CROOMBES, and lists Thomas as a CROOMBES, SLEADMORE as SLEADGMORE, Dorothy JOHNSON (not Dr. JOHNSON), COMMANT, not CONNANT, Jon. BAKER, not John BAKER, and Henry CELBY (not COLBY). According to the Maryland Genealogy Society Bulletin 35 (2), 1994, p. 217, :"CELBY [sic], Henry married by 6 Sept 1719, Mary, admx of Simmond COMBES of St. Mary's Co, MD (MDAD 2:209), but this may be based on Skinner, all of whose other references to Henry are COLBY or COLBEY, not CELBY or SELBY.

(20, 214. Maryland Calendar of Wills, Vol. 6) Wife is Ann per abstract of Combs Researcher Barbara Stacy Mathews, and Enoch's surname COOMBS or COMBES.

William COMBS who d 1740-2 in St. Mary's Co MD, had a daughter, Elianor COMBS who had married a (William?) MEDLEY at the time William's will was written (see below). Was this William's daughter, in which case, she was born bef 1718 (presumably 16 to receive payment in her own right).

20th Mar., 1739-40; 17th Nov., 1740. Will of George ROGERS of St. Mary's Co. To daus. Darcus and Dorothy, personalty. To son George, lands in Turtola [Tortola?] and Anquila [Antigua?].

(22. 279 .Maryland Calendar of Wills: Volume 8 )SW: COMBS

The above seems unlikely to be James, s/o William and Mary HATTON Combs since he would have still been in his minority with a minimum of four years to majority based on 1742 will of his father.
