  • Notes 
    • Sheriff of Shropshire and Staffordshire, 1248-50. "The appointment of Thomas Corbet (a Baron Marcher) to be Sheriff of Shropshire and Staffordshire in this same year (1248) is an extraordinary one, and has given rise to a discussion whether he, or his namesake of Hadley, was the person so distinguished. When we find that Thomas Corbet of Hadley was deceased in August 1247, we are satisfied that it was the Baron of Caus." [Eyton, Antiquities of Shropshire, citation details below. Marcher lords were rarely made sheriffs for the same reason that they rarely went on crusade: their presence at the border was constantly required.]
