About Richard Combs, Lord of Combe

Richard Combe "Lord of Combs Manor" Devonshire, England. He was born to Sir Combe in 1537. The family business was making combs and his son John would peddle the combs to the public. The business was at the Combe Manor in Devonshire England. The family name adopted the spelling of COMBS due to the calling of the peasants as Richard's son was coming down the street, "Here comes John with combs". Eventually he was just called John Combs...which is used to this day.

Major corrections have been made in respect to earlier published family histories, including The Combes Genealogy… by Josiah H. Combs; the James L. Kendall Manuscript of 1943; and the (undated) Hazel M. Kendall Manuscript. John COMBE, h/o Margaret ARCHDALE, could not have been John COMBE, son of Richard COMBE of Combe Manor, Devonshire who died in 1619.
