Accawmack County was an original shire, and a.k.a. the "Eastern Shore," but in 1643, its name was changed to Northampton, and then in 1661, Accomack County was established from approximately the upper half of Northampton County


Combs Records for the Eastern Shore are sparse, but in fact, the first two are among the earliest to this area:

1623/4 Muster of "Virginia Colony Inhabitants of the "Eastern Shore" (included):

John COOMES
William COOMES

("The Original Lists of Persons of Quality,-..1600-1700," edited by John Camden Hotten, Genealogical Publishing Co., Inc., Baltimore, 1968, 1983, p. 188) (See Also Early Combs to VA)

By the time the 1624/5 Muster came around, however, William COMES had been "slain by the Indians" (ibid., p. 236) and it appears that John COMBS had removed across the bay to Jamestown (although not documented to have been the same).

After 1623/4, Combs records become scarce in number on the Eastern Shore, and in fact, the first of the two records that follow is not of a COMBS, but a COMER, and included here only due to (a) the possibility of a mis-transcription by the Clerk; (b) the discovery that COMBE/COMBER were sometimes interchangeable in England; and/or (c) that he may be somehow connected to the Thomas COMER a.k.a. COMES of later Essex County, VA:

12 Oct 1652 (Northampton ~ VA PB 3:105) July GARDNER, 300 A. at the Emost part of Charles SCARBURGH'S land on N side of Pungotege Cr. Trans. 6 pers: Jenkins LURTIN, Lewis ROWLAND, Dorothy BAINER (or BARNER), Thomas COMER, Kath. BLUMFIELD, Jane DAME (C&PI:260)

Note: In a copy from original patent book (VSLA Image), the above surname actually looks more like COMEN than either COMER or COMES (based on other words in patent ending in "n, "s," and "r").


1633/1635 Names appearing in papers in the suit of Wm CLAYBORNE agst CLOBERY & Co.

10 Nov 1633 Thos. BUTLER Sailor

______ 1635 ____ WICKLIFFE hire of pinnace

20 Nov 1635 Mr. BRIDGES 2 baggs

09 Dec 1635 Francis BROOKS miller

10 Apr 1635 Mr. BOULTER flag

(Source: Accomack County 1632-1637, Virginia Colonial Abstracts by Beverly Fleet, v1, 1988, p.44)

Notes: Is it possible the above ____ WICKLIFFEE could have been the same as David WICKLIFFE who stated he transported himself to St. Mary’s Co, MD in 1636. Wm CLAYBORNE established the first white settlement in Maryland at Isle of Kent in 1631. He later promoted Anglicanism in the settlement by supplying prayer books and bibles and paying for ministers to make occasional visits. David WICKLIFFE is a documented Protestant. Could Mr. BRIDGES have been same or related to Hercules BRIDGES of York Co, VA records who owned land adjoining that of Henry BROOKE and Jane UNKNOWN Wickliffe (widow of David WICKLIFFE), Thomas & James BALDRIDGE, and Nathaniel POPE?


02 Oct 1655 (Northampton - Land Patent Book No. 4, p. 13) Thomas LEATHERBERRY. 600 Acres on S side of the S branch of Anancock & bounding Wly on land of John DORMAN.

ROUND [ROANE], Robert BRIGHT, Mary (H?)OOKES, CHARLES COOMES [COONIES or COOMES]. (VSLA Land Patents, Abstracted by C. Hammett, 1997.

Bracketed spellings above are per Cavaliers & Pioneers, Abstracts of Virginia Land Patents and Grants, Vol. 1, 1623-1666, Nugent; however, the patent image clearly shows COOMES, not COONIES.

Neither of the men in the above two records have been identified thus far: Much later in Essex Co VA, we have a Charles COMBS who appears to have been possibly kin to the Archdale COMBS descendants of that county, and likewise a Thomas COMBES a.k.a. COMBER (var. sp.? mis-transcriptions?).

The last of the Early Combs Records found on the Eastern Shore is yet another unidentified, but again with Combs-Connections, although nebulous and distant:

26 Aug 1678 - 11 Dec 1678 (Northampton Co VA Wills) Will of (Capt.) John SAVAGE, Gent. - 26 Aug. 1678 / 11 Dec. 1678 - To my son John SAVAGE (not of age) the following eight plantations: John WEBSTER'S, Thomas BANKES', Robert HARRISON'S, Steven SCOTT'S Hendrick ABELL'S, Thomas DUPARKS', William LAWRENCE'S, and the widow WEBLEY'S, the said plantations containing in the whole about 700 A.

Notes: Jarvis COOMES has not been found in any other records; however, of possible interest:

  1. Thirty years later, in a Richmond Co VA deed dated 11 January 1708, John TANKARD "of county Northampton planter" conveyed to Nicholas SMITH and Nathaniel POPE land which was originally part of a WHITTINGDON/YARRETT patent, and adjacent to land owned by John COMBS & Thomas KENDALL (father of William KENDALL who m Elizabeth COMBS, d/o John). (North Neck Pat Bk 2:263; Richmond OB Richmond Co, Records, 1704-1724, p. 56; King George DB4:30-35) (See Also Old Rappahannock and Richmond Cos VA)
  2. Seventy years earlier, a "William CAWDREY, alias COOKE" was named in the 1608/09 will of Thomas COMBE of Stratford-on-Avon, Co Warwick, England. This Thomas COMBS' 1st wife was a Mary SAVAGE (ancestry not yet determined), and his second wife, Mary BONNER, the daughter of Anthony & Bridget SAVAGE Bonner, and widow of William YONGE. Bridget YONGE, d/o William & Mary BONNER Yonge, m George WILLIS of Fenny Compton, Co Warwick, EN, who was later governor of CT. (Research-in-Progress, See Combs of Warwickshire, England)

Nonetheless, despite these century-spanning "coincidences," no connection has ever been made between either the COMBS or the KENDALLS of Richmond and Northampton Cos, VA. The same is not true, however, of other Combs-Associated Families, as is evidenced by the following series of records:


29 May 1656 - 23 Sep 1657 (Old Rappa. Deeds, 1656-1664, Part I:133-135)At a county court for Northampton 23 Sep 1657… Present Lt. Coll. Edw. DUGLAS, Capt. Francis POTT, Mr. William KENDALL, Mr. Llellvyne [Llewellyn?] BERWOOD, Mr. John TILNEY. This day Mr. William SMART did exhibit to the Court a Generall Discharge for land signed by Mrs. Ursula BROWNE Widdow & Exx. of her late Husband Mr. John BROWNE deced bearing date the 29th of May 1656 whereby it appearth that all agreemts. & Bargaines for land between the said Mr. John BROWNE and the said Mr. William SMART with the consent of the said Widdowe Mrs. Ursula BROWNE are made void & totally disannuled for the said Mr. SMART his land at Rappahanock & the said Mr. John BROWNE his land at Accomack als Northampton County in Virga. & upon the request of the said Mr. William SMART the aforesaid Genll.

Recordat the 23 of Apr 1661 p me Wa. GRANGER Cl Cur Rappa. (Old Rappahannock Co VA Deeds & Wills, Ruth and Sam Sparacio, Antient Press, McLean, VA)

The above John BROWN had patented 200 acres of land in Northampton Co VA on 26 Oct 1646, described as "Lyeing at Nutsawattocke Cr. NW upon Levinge DENWOOD. " His patent had included transportation of four persons: "John BROWN, Ursula his wife, Robert SALISBURY, Symon SMITH." (VA Land Patent Book 2:67, Cavaliers & Pioneers, Vol. 1, Nugent, p. 163) His son, Thomas BROWN, remained in Accomack Co VA at least as late as 14 Feb 1664/5 (Old Rappa. Deeds & Wills No. 1:83-5), and possibly forever. (Not Researched)

In Old Rappahannock County in the 1660s, Archdale COMBS is found frequently in records with Alexander FLEMING, and Robert PAYNE of Old Rappahannock County, the latter godfather to both Alexia FLEMING, d/o Alexander & Elizabeth FLEMING, and to Mary MEADOR, d/o John MEADOR, who was somehow "brother-in-law" to Abraham COMBS of Old Rappahannock County, VA and later St. Mary's County, Maryland. Witness Sylvester THATCHER's widow, Margaret (POWELL?) married 2nd Warwick CAMMOCK, also a close associate of Archdale COMBS.

By 1663, John NUTHALL had himself removed to St. Mary's County, Maryland where he appears in records of that county with William & Enoch COMBS, and Robert CLARK, son-in-law of the above Abraham COMBS. In 1689, his son, John NUTHALL, II, and Enoch COMBES (I or II) both signed the Calvert County, Maryland Protestant Petition.

What any of the above might mean, if anything, in terms of our Combs Research, remains unknown (research in progress). Also note that Living DENWOOD was a Quaker, one of those who removed to Maryland following the religious atrocities in Virginia (See also Atkinson Families).
