The family business was making combs and his son John would peddle the combs

to the public. The business was at the Combe Manor in Devonshire England. The family name

adopted the spelling of COMBS due to the calling of the peasants as Richard's son was coming down the street, "Here comes John with combs". Eventually he was just called John Combs..which is used to this day.
