Stafford County, VA is part of the Combs &c. Deed Mapping Project.


Introduction

See also Combs &c. Families of Stafford Co, VA for records in addition to land.
(Ed. Note: GEORGE & HARDING & more to still to be added)

Stafford County, VA was established in 1664 from Westmoreland Co VA (although no Combs have been located in records of Westmoreland prior to late 1600s). Descendant Counties include Prince William in1730-1 (Fairfax > Loudoun, and Fauquier). In 1777, major exchanges took place between Stafford & King George Counties. (Note map above and see also Combs County Line Land maps)

Important! The land tracked in this report does not include that part of Stafford which ultimately became part of Loudoun (Prince William > Fairfax > Loudoun). Only land in present-day Stafford, Prince William and Fauquier Cos are included here. See also Combs &c. Land of Loudoun Co, VA.

It appears that most, if not all, Combs of Stafford Co VA lived in or near the Aquia Creek area bordering both the Prince William and Fauquier County lines. Even when not "county-line land," the distances between various locations were not great:

"John RALLS, Senior, advertisement in the Virginia Gazette for sale of his 780-85 acre plantation in Overwharton Parish, 1 Aug1771, describes same as: "convenient to Trade, lies fourteen Miles from the Falls of Rappahannock, twelve from Dumfries, on Potomack, seven from Aquia Warehouse, the same distance from Aquia Church, six from the Quaker Meeting House, five from the Baptist Meeting House, in Fauquier County, four from Chapwasmick [Chopawamsic] Meeting House, in Stafford County, and not quite three miles from Two Grist Mills."

(Virginia Gazette, Overwharton Parish Register…, p. 196)

27 Jul 1756 (Stafford County Liber N 1739-49: RALLS from Combs 505.) from (Prince William County Minute (Order) Books1755-57).

John RALLS sues John MURDOCK.. the following come to Court: James PHILLIPS (8 mi.), John ASHBY (12 mi), William KENDALL (5 days ten mi.); Richard HEWITT (5 days, 18 mi. for RALLS); William ETHRING (5 days, 13 mi for MURDOCK); Charles HARDIN (1 day, 12 mi for MURDOCK); William BUSSELL (1 day 27 mi for RALLS), Jemima MASON (5 days for RALLS); George MASON (5 days for RALLS); John CARTER (1 day 20 mi. for MURDOCK); John PEYTON Junr (1 day for RALLS); Richard Joseph Combs [sic] (4 days 9 mi for MURDOCK; Jane WILLIAMS (2 days 9 mi. for RALLS); John RALLS Junr (2 days, 9 mi for RALLS)

(Abstracted by Combs Researcher Denise Mortorff from copy of original who notes that the given names Archdale and Archibald were frequently confused by court clerks)

SW: SEDDON

Note: Thomas WILKINSON'S "grand patent" was dated 10 Jun 1658; thus the sale to MATTHEWS and thence to Combs was after that date, yet before 1688 by which time, David ANDERSON had sold the land to Magne BARRETT, and BARRETT to John WEST.
