From early days right into the present time, occupations, whether professional or crafts and trades, have been passed down from father to son (and nowdays mothers and daughters, too). Knowing the occupation of one's ancestor can be of help in tracing his ancestry, and the following is the very incomplete beginning of an effort to organize some of our early Combs by their occupations. See Also the Combs &c. Glossary for expanded definitions of these occupations (and more) and ALHN's Occupations: Titles and Definitions
Note: The all-too-common occupation of Farmer-Planter-Rancher-Yeoman will not be included here for the very reason that it is all too common. We begin with but a few occupations, and those undoubtedly incomplete, but will expand on these when/if they become part of our active research.
