At least two online family trees suggest:

Richard Coombs       
  +Elisabeth Batt       b: ABT 1625
     2        Richard Combs       b: 1650 in St. Edmounds, England
                 +Elizabeth Hobbs       b: 1650 in Hempstead, NY.

Unfortunately, as is often the case, no valid source citations are provided.

Thank you, Patrick Barnum.  Especially for the info on Richard.  In tracing the lineage of Sarah, I always got stuck on trying to find Richard, and he is important as he is the branch on our part of the family tree.  :D

Based upon my years of research into my own English roots, the name "St. Edmounds" looks suspicious to me. After a bit more research I'm virtually certain that it should be "Bury St. Edmunds", a market town in County Suffolk.

Hello, I have a similar lineage for the Coombs family, and I am also searching for the parentage of Richard Coombs m. to Elizabeth Hubbs or Hobbs. Having done research with several Silver Book owners, there is no evidence that Richard Coombs was a son of Sarah Priest and John Coombs. I have the same lineage from Richard Coombs down to Samuel and Margaret (Langdon) Coombs/COMBS. We may be cousins.

I am beginning to think that Richard Coombs is actually descended from Archdale Coombs or Combs from Old Rappahannock, but as yet have not found any proof or citations proving this.

Hope this helps.
