Mr. A. J. Fenton, late of Worthing, but now of Staines, had kindly searched parish registers by permission of the vicar, and says the name occurs from 1559 to 1678 as Robinson, Robynson, Robertson, Robison, and Robisonn. On March 8, 1678, is the burial of "Willm Robisonn," probably the issuer.

The Rev. F. R. Hepburn, M. A., Rector, has kindly searched the parish registers and sends the following extracts:

Baptism. 1662. Thomas, ye sonne of John Cumbridge and Rose his wife, Nov. 20.
Baptism. 1678. John, the soun of John Combridge, August 27 day.
Baptism. 1679. Elizabeth, daughter of John Combridge, March 9 or 7th day.
Baptism. 1682. Sarah, the daughter of John Cumbridge, May 4.
Baptism. 1683. John, son of John Cumbridge.
Baptism. 1685. Mary, daughter of John Cumbridge and Elizabeth his wife, Jan.
Baptism. 1688. Jane, daughter of John Combridge, Dec.
Baptism. 1690. Andrew, son of John Combridge and Elizabeth his wife, Feb. 18.
Baptism. 1695. Robert, son of John Combridge and Elizabeth his wife, May 30.
Baptism. 1697. Christopher, son of John Combridge, decesaed, and Elizabeth his widdow. Decbr 1.
Burial. 1662. Thomas, ye sonne of John Cumbridge.
Burial. 1669. Rose, ye wife of John Cumbridge, May ye 10th.
Burial. 1670. Elizabeth, ye wife of John Cumbridge, Sept t.
Burial. 1687. Anne, a young child of John Combridge, Decr 1.
Burial. 1696. John Combridge, March 16.
Burial. 1697. John Combridge, Shopkeeper, June 18.

The initials "I R C" clearly stand for "John and Rose Combridge." If it was his wife Elizabeth who died in 1670, then he must have married a third time, and we may probably identify the John Combridge baptized in 1678 as his son, and the issuer as buried in 1697, especially as he is designated "Shopkeeper."
