There is a Dandy Corner in Cotton, about 6 miles from Stowmarket. Combs is just outside Stowmarket.
He married Martha Poley of Badley and died in 1607. Beneath the organ in the church there is a brass plate inscribed in Latin to his memory.
The memorial states that he was " vir probus et prudens " - a man of integrity and discretion.
A wooden panel on the wall of the north aisle has painted on it a coloured coat-of-arms of the Dandy-Poley family.
(Booklet ?Combs Church and Parish".)
Thomas Dandy, to whom he granted the right of presentation for this turn, was at this time occupying West Stow hall, if one may judge by his having children baptized and buried there in 1589 and 1592
