A quote from Courthope's "Debrett" states that - "Corbet, a noble Norman, came into England with the Conqueror, and from his son Roger Corbet descended the baronial house, as well as the families of the name now existing". The Conqueror referred to is of course William 1st (1066 - 1087), and during his reign many such names were introduced from France...

They call me Trinity. My 5th great grandfather, Jesse Corbit, fought in the American Revolutionary War. He was mentioned honorably by George Washington for deeds at the Battle of Fort Washington. His son Robert said Jesse was born in Ireland. I have no knowledge of where in Ireland he was born or when he left.?

Would love to trace my family who emigrated from Galway Ireland during the famine.
Direct descendent Edward Corbet died 1805 . Lived at one time in Scotland yard Westminster, then in Kingston Jamaica. Was an agent for the Jamaican Governor during Slave uprising in St Domingo ( Tahiti). I believe he came from a wealthy family but can't find out which or when he was born. The name Edward has been passed down as a matter of form to present day descendants so probably a long term previous christian name. Any info greatly received. Have the family tree from 1789.

Would you happen to have a James Corbett in your tree about 1788? From Liverpool?
