Email From Sam Whitby, Cumbo/Cumbia family researcher [19 Nov 2002]

I have been reading the Combs &c. Families of King George Co VA, and I noticed with great interest a mention of Emanuel Cambee. Perhaps you will be interested in the following:
"To all & whereas & Now know yee that I yee said Sr. Wm. Berkeley, etc., give and grant unto Emannel Cambew negro 50 acres of Land according to the ancient Lawful bounds thereof, scituate in James Citty County, the said Land being part of a greater Quantity formerly granted unto Will Davis and Lately found to be in Escheate, 18 April 1667."
The preceding is from VIRGINIA COLONIAL ABSTRACTS, Ser. 2, Vol. 4, p.48.
I have yet to see the original, so I cannot attest to the accuracy of the rendering of the spellings in the transcription.

It seems that the person mentioned on your page may have been a son of the above Emanuel. It is less likely but perhaps remotely possible that he was the same person.
