    BARONY OF CORBET (III) 1322

    JOHN (CORBET), LORD CORBET, brother of the half blood, born 25 March 1298. He was never sum. to Parliament, being "reduced to a position of comparative beggary." He died s.p. before 1347, when any hereditary barony which may supposed to have been created by writ of summons became extinct. [Complete Peerage III:417-8, (transcribed by Dave Utzinger)]

    (a) His coheirs were the descendants of his aunts. (1) Alice, m. Robert de Stafford, whose great-grandson and h., Ralph, Lord Stafford, then aged 32, inherited the Castle of Caus, &c.; and (2) Emma, m. Sir Bryan de Brampton, of whose great-grand-daughters and coheirs, Margaret, then aged 46, was wife of Robert Harley [ancestor of the Earls of Oxford], and Elizabeth, then aged 42, was wife of Edmund de Cornwall.

    NOTE: The above entry in CP would indicate that John had no issue. However CP XIV:206, in a correction/addendum to the above entry, adds after "Cornwall" in note (a) above: "It is possible, however, that John Corbet left male issue. See Patrick Montague-Smith, 'Corbets, Barons of Caus and of Leighton'... He there cites an IPM of Mary, Lady Ros in 1403/4 where the heir to the Orreby estates was found to be Richard Corbet of Leighton, great-great-grandson of Peter Corbet and his wife Alice de Orreby. This information does not appear in the published IPM of 1393/4 when she died."
