Generation: 1

  1. 1.  Robert Corbet was born on 25 Dec 1304 in of Moreton Toret, Shropshire, England (son of Thomas Corbet and Amice); died on 3 Dec 1375.

    Notes:

    Calendar of Papal Registers, 2:229, Ides March 1323: "To Robert Corbet, lord of the town of Morton in the Diocese of Lichtfield and Elizabeth daughter of Fulke le Strange, seneschal of the Duchy of Aquitaine, dispensation to remain in marriage which they contracted in ignorance that they were related in the 4th degree, and declaring their present and future offspring legitimate. 1 March, Avignon."

    Robert married Elizabeth le Strange before Mar 1323. Elizabeth (daughter of Fulke le Strange and Eleanor Giffard) was born in in of Blackmere, Whitchurch, Shropshire, England; died after 1375. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]

    Children:
    1. Roger Corbet was born in in of Morton Corbet, Shropshire, England; died about 1394.
    2. Thomas Corbet

Generation: 2

  1. 2.  Thomas Corbet was born on 25 Dec 1281 in of Moreton Toret, Shropshire, England (son of Robert Corbet and Maud); died in 1310.

    Other Events:

    • Alternate birth: 25 May 1284

    Thomas married Amice. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 3.  Amice

    Notes:

    This Amice must have been a daughter either of Robert le Strange (d. 1276) and Eleanor Blancminster (<1251-~1304), or of John Giffard (~1232-1299) and Maud de Clifford (d. <1286), because her son Robert Corbet's marriage to Elizabeth le Strange was granted a papal dispensation in March 1323 "to remain in marriage which they contracted in ignorance that they were related in the 4th degree." The dispensation further declares their progeny legitimate. All four of Elizabeth le Strange's grandparents are known, as are Robert Corbet's paternal grandparents; the only way Elizabeth and Robert could have been "related in the fourth degree" (i.e., first cousins) would be if Amice's parents were one of these two couples.

    Children:
    1. 1. Robert Corbet was born on 25 Dec 1304 in of Moreton Toret, Shropshire, England; died on 3 Dec 1375.


Generation: 3

  1. 4.  Robert Corbet was born in in of Moreton Toret, Shropshire, England (son of Richard Corbet and Petronilla); died in 1300; was buried in Alberbury, Shropshire, England.

    Notes:

    Sheriff of Shropsire 1288-9.

    Robert married Maud about 1280. Maud died in 1309. [Group Sheet] [Family Chart]


  2. 5.  Maud died in 1309.

    Notes:

    Called "Matilda de Arundel" in Eyton's Antiquities of Shropshire (chart, v. 10, p. 183); called "Matilda filia....de Tideshill [Tideshall] vidua 35 E. 1." in the 1623 Visitation of Shropshire. If the former is correct, it is tempting to place her (as many online sources do) as a daughter of Sir John Fitz Alan and Maud de Verdun (also called Maud de Boteler), who died in 1267 and 1283 respectively, but there is no less reason to suppose she was from the unrelated Arundel family of Dorset. In fact we're unaware of any primary-source evidence for her parentage.
