Among the early Combes of Warwickshire, the most well-known were undoubtedly the Combes of Old Stratford and Stratford on Avon, close associates of William SHAKESPEARE.
Their relationships to the BARNES, PALMER, SMITH & WHITE Families indicate a remotely possible relationship to the Archdale-Combs Families of London. Their relationships with the RAINSFORD and BOUGHTON Families indicate a highly probable relationship to the Hertfordshire Combs, and their two brothers both named John continue to be crazy-making.
See Also Combs-Associated Families of Warwickshire, which includes additional data in regard to both land holdings and yet more Combs relationships.
