My cousin Denis Colbourne has published a book 'Colbourne  Family History English Ancestry 1300-1900.' It can be purchased at if you just type that name into the search engine. He has also published the Colbourne's of Twillingate and is currently working on a third.  Very extensive research.

Ronald as you probably know Susannah Quinton m Wm Colbourne at Downton 1751. Likely b1727 of Thos & Mary who m 1692 Downton
There are Col members of family in Downton 1870/1881 which I have detail. Then there is Rev Thos Weekes though of Isle of Man, being a Rev could have come from anywhere. He is in Chippenham in 1794.
In case of any help, need more might have something. Brenda
