Holcombe

No records of births deaths or marriages for the Holcombe family  in Chewton Mendip have yet been found but the churchwarden accounts and poor book  for the middle of the 18th century record an estate called Holcombe in Widcombe.
Jonas Moon’s estate may have included the Holcombe estate and this is one possible source of the name of the estate. Holcombe is also the name of a village about 10 miles from Chewton Mendip and Moon was a relativly common name in that village.
