Thomas Comber (1645-1699), was ordained a deacon in 1663, priest in 1664, and Dean of Durham from 1691 to 1699. He was a prolific "liturgical writer and Church of England polemicist." The first part of his, A Companion to the Temple and the Closet, was published in 1672. Considered his greatest work, The Companion to the Temple was a detailed commentary on the Book Of Common Prayer "designed to promote its public and private devotional use." By 1692 Comber was Chaplain to William and Mary. [Andrew M. Coleby, ‘Comber, Thomas (1645–1699)’, Oxford Dictionary of National Biography, Oxford University Press, 2004]. [Wing C5494; ESTC: R20818].
