Page 12. Betty, daughter of Joseph Comberbach, of Betchton, bapt. 26 April, 1771. Sarah, daughter of Francis Comber­brch, from Lichfield, buried 19 February, 1748. These entries occur in the transcripts of Sandbach Parish Register, but I am unable to connect the persons mentioned with the Sandbach Comberbachs.

Page 13. There is a licence bond at Chester, for the marriage of John Comberbach, of Walton-le-Dale, and Ann Halliday, of the same place, dated 14 January, 1723.

Page 24. It is stated upon the authority of Harl. MS. 2153, that James Comberbach married Jane, daughter of Randle Shenton. This may possibly be an error, and this Jane have been the wife of his father, John Comberbach, of London. There is a licence bond at Chester, dated 13 April, 1681, for the marriage of James Comberbach, of Nantwich, and Ellen John­son, of the city of Chester, widow. Ellinor (sic), wife of James Comberbach, was buried at Acton, 18 September, 1696. This Ellen, however, could not have been the mother of any of the children of the James Comberbach stated in the pedigree to have married Jane Shenton.

Page 27. Dorothy Comberbach, of Chester, widow, in her will dated 18 May, 1784, and proved 8 June, 1786, mentions her sister Lee, nephew Sir Richard Perryn, knight, neice Mrs. Wilbraham, great-nephew Roger Comberbach, and other persons.

Page 30. Robert, son of John Comberbach, was born 1 May, and baptised 19 same month, at Hammer, co. Flint. This was probably Robert, who married Lettice Richardson.

Page 30. The third John Comberbach, of Haughton, ceases to be called “the younger” in certain deeds in the year 1774.       His father must, therefore, have died previous to that date. “John Comberbach, of Whitchurch, co. Salop,” was buried at Bunbury, 17 February, 1770. This may have been the second John of Haughton.

Page 49. (Note) William Cooper, of Shrewsbury, in his will of 7 June, 1771, mentions his lease of the house he lives in upon Clarmond Hill, from Robert Comberbach, gent., of Shrewsbury.

Page 55. In Farndon Churchyard, Cheshire.

In memory of Benjamin Dutton, late of Broxton, who departed this life January the 1st, 1776. Aged 85 years.

Beneath this stone Death’s Prisoner lies,

The Stone shall move, the Prisoner rise,

When Jesus with Almighty word

Calls his dead Saints to meet their Lord.
