Had land at Combe, Presteigne.
Combe is a township belonging to the parish of Presteigne (Radnorshire), but situate in the county of Hereford. It is distant about 2 miles E. of Presteigne railway station, 8 N.E. of Kington, 5 N.W. of Pembridge, 12 W. by N. of Leominster.
Some IGI entries for this christening have Francis a male, some as female, but always spelt Francis not Frances.
A Francis Kinnersley was Bailiff of Leominster in 1750, which could be this man, but presumably he was already living in London (as he was in 1758) by then?
