NOTES

It is possible that there were two daughters named Mary in this family, as although there seems little doubt from the will of William COMLEY (J60) that his daughter Mary married Samuel OSBORNE, other records suggest she may not have been born as early as 1740/1.

Variant spellings of the surname COMLEY include COMLY, COMELY, COMBLY, CUMLY etc.
