Archdale, Combs &c. Families of
St. John Walbrook, London

St. John the Baptist Walbrook* was destroyed in 1666 and not rebuilt (only a small portion of the churchyard remains). It was united with
St. Antholin Budge Row in 1670, and to St Mary Aldermary in 1873. Extant parish records are: baptisms, 1682 and 1686-1812; and burials 1686-1812. Baptisms, burials and marriages from circa 1670 are with those of St Antholin Budge Row. A partial index to baptisms for the years 1682-1812 is in the IGI. (GenDoc's Victorian Churches (Church of England a.k.a. Anglican) No Archdales or Combs are found in the index to St John Walbrook.

John COMBE, baptised 16 Aug 1602, St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, eldest son of John and Margaret ARCHDALE Combe, and h/o Elizabeth LOVETT whom he married 08 Jul 1630, Soulbury, Bucks. The administration of his mother's estate had been granted to John a month earlier (See St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury), and apparently included properties she had inherited from her father, both in St. Antholins, and also in St. John the Baptist Walbrook (also a city centre parish), both mentioned in the 1609 Aldermanbury will of John's maternal grandfather, Thomas ARCHDALE.

Questions: Who was George THETCHER? Was he actually a THATCHER? Might he have been kin to Sylvester THATCHER of Old Rappahannock Co, Virginia, first h/o Margaret UNKNOWN, who afterward married Warwick CAMMOCK, close associate of Archdale COMBE of Old Rappa (thought to have been s/o John and Elizabeth LOVETT Combe)?
