15 Oct 1619 - 1622 Trinity College, Oxford. John COMBE of London, son of a gentleman, matriculated Trinity College on 15 October 1619, aged 17. (Archives) COMBE was admitted to the Inner Temple in 1622 as the son and heir of John COMBE of Edmonton, Middlesex, arm. deceased. No further information is given." ("Oxford Oxonienses" by Foster, volume dated 1500-1714, provided by the Archivist of Oxford University to Combs Researcher Denise Mortorff who adds that although Foster's source for the 1622 admission to the Inner Temple has now been confirmed, how he determined that John COMBE of Oxford in 1619 and John COMBE of the Inner Temple in 1622 were one individual remains unknown as yet (research in progress).
The above John COMBE the younger of Oxford University and London is documented as the son of John and Margaret ARCHDALE Combe I of St. Mary the Virgin Aldermanbury, London (he was baptized in 1602 and would therefore be 17 years of age in 1619). His maternal aunt, Barbara ARCHDALE, wife of William PALMER, owned a messuage in Tottenham, only one mile from Edmonton. In 1630, John COMBE the younger m in Soulbury, Bucks, Elizabeth LOVETT, d/o Sir Robert and Anne SAUNDERS Lovett, also of Soulbury, Bucks. John II died in April 1652 in Sparsholt, Berkshire, and by 1656 his widow, Elizabeth, was of Oxfordshire when she apprenticed their son, Archdale COMBE (b 1641, Soulbury Parish) to (her brother?) Christopher LOVETT, a Draper, as had been her father-in-law, John COMBE I.

According to the Visitations of London, also in Edmonton, Middlesex were both the DITCHFIELD and MANNING families. Mary COMBE, d/o John & Margaret ARCHDALE Combs, had m 13 Dec 1607, St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, London, Randall MANNING, and their daughter, Mary MANNING, had m 27 Mar 1631/2 (location not yet known) Edward DITCHFIELD, s/o Edward DITCHFIELD.

Despite these numerous Combs Connections to Edmonton, we have found no early Combs Marriages in this parish as yet (possibly because many of the marriages took place in London?)
