My lines are also Comben and White. Bartholomew White (1728-1809) is my first White ancestor in the US from Portland, Dorset. His mother was Barbara Comben. Her dad was Bartholomew Comben; his dad was Thomas White. Who are your White ancestors?

Hi -This is so interesting -I'm related to the Combens through my grandmother's grandmother I think - although my grandmother came from Lincolnshire. My grandmother's family name was Healey though. Both my mum - who comes from Weymouth - I do too although I live in London - and my grandmother talked about 4 Comben sisters and them being very tall and at least one of them living near to Victoria Square.  I remember looking up records over 10 years ago and found one of them had moved to Deptford in London (near where I live) to teach.
