There appears to be a lot of them living in and around Ross-on-Wye, especially Bridstow, Peterstow and Sellack.
In Littlebury's Directory & Gazeteer 1876-7 there is an entry:
Colcombe James, freeholder
Colcombe James, jun., assistant overseer for Sellack, Peterstow, and Bridstow, Picts cross
Colcombe Mrs. James, schoolmistress and organist

 I have just found this thread.  I have Colcombe in my tree but without the 'e' and from Wales but will let you know if I come across anything that might be of interest to you.  As yet haven't made it back to 1700s.

By any chance would they be from the Pontypridd, Merthy area.
If they are will maybe able to find some missing pieces.
Some kept the e, others did not.
Thank you treddz

Hiya Treddz ....My gg grandfather Daniel Oakes married Marianne Merrick who was from Ocle Pychard in Herefordshire...here in Garston,Liverpool in 1875 ....
his Daughter
Beatrice Oakes b 1884 Garston , Liverpool...married
Edgar COLCOMBE b 1885 Weobley,Herefordshire ....in 1913
Beatrice died and then Edgar married her sister Sarah Oakes( b 1890 Garston ) in 1919
I am convinced that the Merrick and Colcombe family from around that area were somehow related........anyway...I know it is not the 1700`s ...but....I would be very grateful if you come across COLCOMBE from Weobley in your research you would contact me....allan oakes

Hello Treddz,

Sorry to have taken so long to respond.  The only Colcomb I have found so far has been transcribed as coming from Aberdare and sometimes Abbey Dore, he was William Colcomb.  I really haven't done too much research in this area yet so I am afraid I can't be of much help at present.

Regards,
ANYAS

Hello Garstonite,

I am sure somewhere in the deep recesses of my memory (!) I have seen Weobley in connection with Colcomb(e).  I will try to recall where and get back to you.

Regards,
ANYAS

In the 1841 census nearly all the Colcombe's are in Weobley, Hfds.
And here - http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.ancestry.com/~hughwallis/
you will find baptisms and marriages back as far as 1654.  Fred
