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.)
