The patronage of the church of Pencombe was enjoyed by the successive lords of the manor, as will appear by the following list of patrons and incumbents:

The Patron was the holder of an advowson, the right in English law of presenting a nominee to a vacant ecclesiastical benefice. In effect this means the right to nominate a person to hold a church office in a parish.

The Incumbent was the person nominated, the holder of the Benefice (an ecclesiastical office, in this case the 'parson' of the church at Pencombe).
