Combe / Coombe / Coumbe families of North Hill, Cornwall

I am researching the Coumbe (also Combe and Coombe) family of the parish of North Hill (also known as Northill) and its church of Saint Torney in Cornwall England.

The spelling of the surname as Coumbe was adopted in North Hill parish sometime between 1703 and 1723; before that the name was spelt as Combe. In adjacent Linkinhorne parish, the standard spelling is Coombe.

Two families are known to have migrated to Australia.
