BP1934 (Corbet) identifies this Thomas as grandfather of Sir Richard Corbet who settled at Moreton and reports that "Twelfth in descent from this Sir Richard was" Sir Vincent of Moreton Corbet, living in 1606. We

provide details of the descent from Visitation and BEB1841. Some web sites refer to Thomas Corbet 'the pilgrim' and a Simon Corbet of Pontesbury as being at the beginning of this descent, some mentioning Simon as

ancestor of the Corbets of Caus Castle, but we know of no reason to doubt the Visitation and BEB1841.

m. Johanna Pigot (dau/coheir of Peter Pigot of Willaston)

((a)) William Corbet

(((1)))Thomas Corbet

m. Margaret (dau of Owen ap Jvan ap Madoc)

Visitation (Shropshire, Corbet) shows Thomas's daughters as Katherina (m. Edward Hopton, had Henry father of John) and Johanna (m. Richard Blount, had William

father of Peter). We follow Visitation (Shropshire, Pigot) which appears better supported by the sources used for the spouses' families.

(((A))) Katherine Corbet

m. John Blount

Shown by Visitation (Shropshire, Pigot) as parents of William father of Peter father of Thomas (a 1589). Reference to William is puzzling.

ii. Sir Robert Corbet of Caus Castle (a 1176)

Some web sites show the following Robert as son of Simon, son of Simon, son of Roger. We follow the Visitation and BE1883. TCP does not provide information before Thomas, father of the 1st Lord.

a. Robert Corbet of Caus Castle

m. Emma Pantulf or Pantolph name found in various web sites

(iii) John Corbet, 3rd Lord (b 25.03.1298, dsp before 1347)

m. Beatrix (a 1347) mentioned by the Visitation but not by TCP

A web site linked to Rootsweb shows Lord John as father of John Corbet of Leighton and provides the following connection. TCP and BE1883 make it clear that Lord John had no legitimate heirs so the

following John, if he existed, must have been illegitimate. This connection is viewed as not fully reliable.

(a) John Corbet of Leighton (d before 1383)

m. Joan

-------------------- It is thought that possibly an ancestor may have been standard-bearer to Rollo, and have derived his name from the raven, Rollo's emblem, which he carried.

"The Corbet" (his Christian name seems to have been Hugh) had four sons, Hugh, Roger, Renand, and Robert. Hugh and Renand remained in France, while Roger and Robert went with their father, Hugh, to the battle of Hastings.

Corbet gave his name to the Pays de Caux, a tract of country between Rouen and Havre, which had Candebee for its capital. If one happens to go up the Seine from Havre to Rouen, one is struck with the picturesque appearance of Candebee.
