Comb-Pyne

COMB-PYNE, a parish, in the union and hundred of Axminster, Honiton and S. divisions of Devon, 3¾ miles (E. S. E.) from Colyton; containing 143 inhabitants. This place was anciently called Comb-Coffin, from the Coffin family; its present adjunct is derived from the Pynes, its later possessors. The living is a discharged rectory, valued in the king's books at £8. 11. 8., and in the gift of Messrs. Knight, Cuff, and Edwards: the tithes have been commuted for £115, and there is a glebe of 28 acres.
