Name: Robert II CORBET , Lord of Caus, Sir 1
Birth: ABT 1151 in Pontesbury, Atcham, Shropshire, England
Death: 1222 in Caus Castle, Westbury, Shropshire, England
Death: AFT 1212 in Dawley Manor, Harlington, Middlesex, England 1
In 1086 the manor was held of Earl Roger by Alnod. It later belonged to the Corbet family of Shropshire, who were no doubt enfeoffed by Earl Roger or one of his sons before their earldom of Shrewsbury was forfeited in 1102. William Corbet held a knight's fee of the honor of Wallingford in 1166, and Robert Corbet of Caus (Salop) held Dawley as one fee in 1212. William son of Ranulf of Whitchurch (Salop) was Robert Corbet's attorney in litigation about woodland in Dawley in 1199, and in 1235 Maud of Whitchurch (de Albo Monasterio, or de Blancmuster) held the fee in Dawley. In 1253 William, lord of Whitchurch, was summoned to do service to the honor of Wallingford, and called Robert Corbet's son Thomas to acquit him. Whitchurch passed in 1260 to coheirs, one of whom was Joan, wife of William de Barentyn. She held Dawley in 1300, according to one list of tenants of Wallingford, while according to another, she and Robert Corbet held it together. The Corbet interest, which may have been a mesne tenancy, is not referred to again.
