Older Vearncombe Ancestry. There is a line of the Vearncombe name commencing in 1528 with  a John Vernecombe which flows through 5 generations up to the birth of the above 3 sons born in Milverton between 1632 and 1637. We have never proved that my 7x G.Grandfather called "Henry" was part of this Family. Was he perhaps Hugh Vearncombe b 1837 in Milverton?

Note. The only two Verncombe's mentioned in the Monmouth Rebellion of 1685 are  called Hugh .One from West Buckland and one from Pitminster. Both were shown as  "absent" from the Courts Presentations. (CP) and for "taking up arms against his Majesty". Lots of families changed their christian names and surnames around 1685 to avoid punishment. Perhaps our Vearncombe ancestors did.
