The Norman Conquest
in 1066 brought much change to the island nation, including many immigrants with new names. Among these immigrants were the ancestors of the Comeback family, who lived in Cheshire
, where they held the title of Lords of the Manor of Comberbach, in the parish of Great Budeworth.
Early Origins of the Comeback family
The surname Comeback was first found in Cheshire
at Comberbach, a civil parish and small village that dates back to the 12th century when it was listed as Combrebeche. The place name literally means "valley or stream on the Britons
or of a man called Cumbra," from the Old English "Cumbre," + "bece." CITATION[CLOSE]

Migration of the Comeback family to the New World and Oceana
The unstable environment in England
at this time caused numerous families to board ships and leave in search of opportunity and freedom from persecution abroad in places like Ireland
, and particularly the New World. The voyage was extremely difficult, however, and only taken at great expense. The cramped conditions and unsanitary nature of the vessels caused many to arrive diseased and starving, not to mention destitute from the enormous cost. Still opportunity in the emerging nations of Canada and the United States was far greater than at home and many went on to make important contributions to the cultures of their adopted countries. An examination of many early immigration records reveals that people bearing the name Comeback arrived in North America very early: Thomas Comberbach who arrived in New England
