This family ranks unquestionably among
the most ancient in England, being derived
in an unbroken male descent from Corbet,
a noble Norman, who, with his two sons,
Robert and Roger, came over with William
the Conqueror. Roger de Corbet, the 2d
son, was father of William, who settled at
Wattleborough, co. Salop, and was the
common ancestor of this family and of
Peter Corbet, of Cans Castle, who was sum-
moned to parliament among the barons of



the realm, from 23 to 26 Ed. I., and d. 28 Ed.
I., leaving a son and heir, Peter, who was
also summoned to parliament from 3(» Ed. I.
to 15 Ed. II., in which year he d. s.p., and
the barony became extinct.

The eldest son of William Corbet, of
Wattlesborough, was Thomas, and his
great-grandson, Richard, settled at Moreton
Corbet, co. Salop, where his descendants
have continued through twenty generations
to the present time.
