Is this sentence correct:
1-He is of London.
Does it mean the same as:
2-He comes from London.
Re: of London
Yes; or 'he lives in London'.
But it's rather an old-fashioned usage. It's probably best avoided in ordinary speech.
There's a 13th century poem that begins:
"I am of Ireland,
And the holy land of Ireland!"
