According to a bill of complaint laid in the court of Star Chamber by Thomas Rede of Venn in the neighbouring Uplowman parish on 12 August 1547 a group of up to 20 riotous persons including John Losemore, by commandment of Johan Marwood, widow, armed with ?swords, bucklers, daggars, staves, bowes, arrowes, bills and pikes?brake and entered into a field? where Thomas and his wife Mabell were working ?in Goddes pece?, carrying off 120 stooks of wheat to the Marwoods? house 1?2 mile away in Halberton.
A Robert Reed de Combe features in the 1332 Lay Subsidy Roll for Uplowman.
The manor of Combe Payne [status: d] in Uplowman parish and Halberton hundred (EPNS, p553).
It appears in two DB entries as Come, one held by Walter the Wild from Walter de Claville, and the other by Gotshelm in demesne (DB 24,10; 25,17). In 1242 John Lancelevee and Robert Avenel held one fee in Murley and Combe from Walter de Clavile, who held them of the honor of Gloucester (Fees, p780). In 1284 they were held by Roger Fitzpayn from John de Claville. In 1303 the holders were John Rogus, William de Combe and Adam Rede. In 1346 the manors were in the hands of Henry de Willyngton, John Bere, Philip at Combe and William Rede, held from John Fitzpayn. In 1428 their heirs were Nicholas Cotterell, Robert Bere and William Rede (OJR, Supp, p25).

(Court of Chancery: Six Clerks Office: Early Proceedings, Richard II to Philip and Mary [22 Jun 1377 - 17 Nov 1558]. Extracted from the PRO Catalogue, London.)
Some say he was of Barton Court, Berkshire, where there certainly were Reades.
