William Duncombe of Ivinghoe, later (also) of Great or Much Brickhill (Buckinghamshire) (a 1550)
The upwards-continuation on Duncombe1 follows BP1934 (Feversham) which shows William of Invinghoe as son of Thomas of Barley End and reports that William "purchased in 1550 the manor of Great Brickhill, Bucks, and was ancestor of Duncombe, Bart., of Tangley Park". Commoners reports that his family "became possessed of the manor and estate of Much Brickhill in 1527." Visitation (Buckinghamhire) has various sections on this family. One (supported by Visitation (Surrey, 1623, Duncombe)) shows the William who married Mary Reynes as son of William of Much Brickhill, son of William of Much Brickhill, son of William of Much Brickhill. We suspect that that duplicates generations. We presume that the above William was the one who was father of ...
1. William Duncombe of Much Brickhill 'of Ivingo Aston' (d 1576)
  m1. Mary Reynes (dau of Richard Reynes of Clifton Reynes, son of John)
  A. Thomas Duncombe of Much Brickhill (d 1595)
  m. Isabella Saunders (dau of Thomas Saunders of Agmondesham)
i. John Duncombe of Much Brickhill (a 1618)
  Commoners reports that John wed (1583) Cecily Conquest (dau of Edmund Conquest of Houghton Conquest) but we follow BEB1841 & Visitation in showing her as wife of his uncle Roger (below). Visitation identifies John's wife as Lucy Duncombe. Commoners also appears to disagree with the subsequent generations, reporting that John & Cecily had (William, Francis, Bennet, George, Katharine, Dorothea and) an eldest son John who died in 1695 leaving (Lucie & Joanna and) John (m. Susanna) who died in 1685 leaving (Katharine, Phillips, Mary and) John who dsp 1687. Commoners then reports that the Brickhill estate "descended in the female line to the families of Barton and of Pauncefort" but does not identify exactly how those connections arose. We provisionally ignore Commoners and follow Visitation which reports only one child, the following Thomas.

Not mentioned by any of the Main Sources for this page was the following Thomas, identified by Visitation (Buckinghamshire, 1634, Hampson of Taplow) as 2nd son of William of Ivingo. Noting that Sir Robert Hampson, father of the under-mentioned Sir Thomas, lived 1537-1607, the dates suggest that, unless the under-mentioned Anne was much younger than her husband (always a possibility), Thomas was probably of this generation.
3. Thomas Duncombe
  A. William Duncombe (3rd son)
  i. Anne Duncombe (eldest dau & coheir)
  m. Sir Thomas Hampson, 1st Bart of Taplow (d 14.08.1655)
