• Background Information. 802
"Robert Corbet, son and heir of Thomas Corbet, grandson of Robert Corbet, was born 25 Dec 1304, and was consequently under 12 years of age when the Nomina Villarum of 1316 marks him as Lord of the Vill of Moreton Corbet. In 1326, he was still without the degree of knighthood. His public life was nearly coextensive with the long reign of Edward III, for he died on 3 Dec 1375. Pursuant to a Writ of 26 Nov 1355, an Inquest reported that Robert Corbet's wish to have view of frank-pledge in Moreton Corbet would only injure the Crown to the extent of about 3s. per annum, which was the average amount of amercements incurred at the Sheriff's two Tourns by Corbet's men, for breaches of the assize of bread and beer, for bloodshed, homsoken, and forestall. [Inquis. 29 Edw. III, 2nd Nos. No. 42]"

Eyton names Robert's wife, Elizabeth, and three of his sons to be Thomas, Fulk and Roger. Thomas died long before his father, and left a daughter, Elizabeth, who married Sir John de Ipstones. Eyton points out that Robert and Elizabeth Corbet basically disinherited their granddaughter, Elizabeth, daughter of their son Thomas. In the Inquest on Robert Corbet's death ordered 11 Dec 1375, and taken 4 Jan 1376, gives Elizabeth as Robert Corbet's heir, but she is not included in the inheritance of any of his property. The will of Robert Corbet left much of his property to "Elizabeth, his wife, conjointly, with the remained, after death of the survivor, to Roger, son of Robert, and the heirs of his body, with remainer to Fulk, brother of Roger, and the heirs of his body."

~ Eyton's Antiquities of Shropshire, Vol. X, pp. 188-190

Robert married Elizabeth le Strange, daughter of Fulk le Strange Baron of Blackmere and Alianore Giffard.160 (Elizabeth le Strange was born about 1310 in England.)
