The Coombs Family in Wiltshire

This page lists those members of the Coombs family whose origins we are researching. Entries in italics are inferred or uncertain, or have been supplied by other researchers and not personally verified by us. The list does not include children believed to have died in infancy. Our Coombs relatives lived in east Wiltshire, very close to the border with Hampshire. Please contact Chris and Linda Warren if you feel that the family listed here is connected with your own research.

The Coombs family lived in Ludgershall in Wiltshire, close to Andover in Hampshire. We have traced the line back to a Thomas Coombs who married Mary Noyce in 1763. We are not sure of his ancestry because there was another Thomas Coombs in Ludgershall at the same time. The family surname appears as Coombes in many records, and we have seen other spelling variations such as Coomes or Combes.

Some of the names below are linked to a more detailed record in the on-line family tree (people marked with an asterisk do not have a full record). When you click on a link, the linked record will be displayed in a separate window. There you can see the family relationships as we understand them, together with notes on what we have found in parish registers, census returns and other records. All the places named below are in Wiltshire unless otherwise indicated.
