  • Notes 
    • Westminster, April 10, 1796. The Lord Chancellor has also appointed John Comberbach, of Eccles Hall in the County of Stafford, Gent, to be a Master Extraordinary in the High Court of Chancery.
      https://www.thegazette.co.uk/London/issue/13888/page/402

      A Master of the Court of Chancery was an official who determined procedural issues, which are often very significant in determining how a case progresses. John Comberbach was described as a skillful conveyancer.
    • ECCLESHALL. To be sold by auction, by Henshaw and Smith, at the Royal Oak, Eccleshall, in the County of Stafford, on Wednesday the 13th day of August 1817, at Five o'clock in afternoon by order of the Assignee of the estate of Mr. John Comberbach.
      A desirable residence in the Town of Eccleshall, two neat and convenient houses adjoining, two fields of land in Eccleshall — a pew in the Church, and reversionary interest in the Royal Oak Inn, and other premises in Eccleshall, in the following lots;
      Lot 1 A large and convenient house, nearly new, in the town of Eccleshall, lately occupied by Mr. John Comberbach, containing an entrance hall and two large parlours in front, all vaulted under— a kitchen, four chambers, four atticks [sic], with a brew-house and chamber over— stable for three horses, an inclosed yard, and large garden nearly half an acre, with a capital fruit, wall, nearly one hundred yards in length, commanding different aspects, and planted with the choicest fruit trees.
      Lot 2. Two good brick and tiled dwelling houses, in Stafford Street, Eccleshall, with very large gardens behind, in the holding of Messrs. Dearne and Blakeman.
      These two houses will be sold together or separate, to suit the convenience of purchasers.
      Lot 3. A piece of rich turf land, in Chebsey-Lane, Eccleshall, called the Burgage, lately occupied by Mr. John Comberbach, containing 1A. 3R. 20P. or thereabouts.
      Lot 4. A piece of meadow land, called Shutborough Meadow, in Chebsey-Lane, lately occupied by, Mr. John Comberbach, for the residue of a term of 99 years, if Mr. John Jenkins, now in his 45th year, so long lives.
      Lot 5. A seat, No. 1, in the gallery, in Eccleshall Church.
      Lot 6. The reversionary interest of the said John Comberbach, expectant upon the death of, and in the event of his surviving his mother, Sarah Comberbach, aged 48, as one of her eight children, in one-eighth of one-third, and also in one-eighth of another third, upon the death and failure of issue, and in the event of, the said John Comberbach surviving Mr. Joseph Henshaw, aged 53; and also in one-eighth of the remaining one-third, upon the death and failure of issue, and in the event of the said John Comberbach surviving Mrs. Penelope Vaughan, aged 46, (but subject to the contingency of the said Joseph Henshaw, and Penelope Vaughan, both dying without children, as they will be entitled with the children of the said Sarah Comberbach, in case they, survive her) in the Royal Oak Inn and several pieces of land, in Eccleshall, in the occupation of Mr. James Bradshaw, and in a messuage and malt-house, in Eccleshall in the occupation of Mr. Sam. Cartwright.
      This property is now let at £150 per annum.
      Mr. James, of Eccleshall, will appoint a person to shew lots 1 and 2 and any information as to these lots, may be had from Mr. Stanley, Solicitor, Newport; Mr. James Bradshaw, will shew the other lots; and any further information may be had from the Auctioneers, or Messrs, Collins and Keens, Stafford.
