Certificates of Residence (1547-1685)
Combs &c. Entries Extracted from the PRO Catalogue, London

Source: Extractions from Public Records Office (PRO) Catalogue, Records of the Exchequer, and its related bodies, with those of the Office of First Fruits and Tenths, and the Court of Augmentations Exchequer: King's Remembrancer: Certificates of Residence (E 115)

Note: There are 68,302 "certificates of residence" (E 115) in 462 bundles of from Edward VI to Charles II (28 Jan 1547 - 6 Feb 1685). Each certified that the person named was, at the time of a particular assessment, resident at the place specified in the certificate, and that they had already been taxed at that place. These certificates were originally attached to the lay subsidy rolls (E179), and cross references to the pouches in which the certificates once belonged provide details of where the person had moved from. In some instances, the former reference has been included below, but not known if this is the cross reference.

Entries of particular interest to currently active (Jan 2001) Combs &c. researchers have been highlighted or linked. Note that the order of the entries is meaningless insofar as years/dates are concerned (per PRO Archivists), and with the wide range of years involved, the same is true when it comes to "guesses" as to the specific identities of the names listed. Also note that some of these items have been ordered (more about which shortly).
