Title: 1871 census lookup please - Corbett
Post by: jessie m on Wednesday 24 January 07 22:50 GMT (UK)
Hi.

I am looking for Thomas Corbett born 1844 at Wellington.  In 1881 he is with his wife Lucy living at Shrewsbury. He has a daughter called Matilda born 1867.

Many thanks.

Regards
Lyn.

Hi Lynn

Are you descended from this Corbett family that you are researching, or are these requests for elimination?

Hi Dee.

No we have found no connection with this Corbett family yet, our Corbett's did come from Wellington and Rochford Nr. Tenbury.

Regards
Lyn.

I have Corbett's in my research- from Wellington and Arleston Shropshire. Many had Biblical names such as Job,Gideon and Noah. Gideon married Elizabeth Price and had sons Noah, John and Enoch and moved to Staffs in 1840's.Does this family have any connection with your Corbett's?

Funny your CORBETTs had Biblical names. My 3 x gt grandfather, Thomas CORBETT who was born in Wellington c1793 named his children Jeshurun (Jesse), Jane Naomi, Ruth and Hannah.

Jeshurun was my 2 x gt grandfather.

I would love to here some more about your CORBETTs.

Dee

Hi Dee My Corbetts were descended from Francis Corbett and Jane Hanman from Wellington. Job was their 3rd child and he had a brother Thomas (is this your Thomas?) Job's eldest son was Enoch who married Eleanor Ison and had Gideon (my great great grandfather). Gideon married Elizabeth Price and had Noah who married Eliza Bailey in Staffs and had my grandfather Harold Corbett. I hope you can understand all this. Is there a connection?. Best wishes Holden

I don't think there is an obvious connection at present, but there may be given that they came from the same area.

Dear Dee,

We appear to be 4th cousins! Thomas Corbett is my great great great grandfather also but it is through his daughter Ruth that I am descended. Do you have any information about Thomas's ancestry as I am struggling a bit in taking it further back than him? :)

Hi Wulf

Our 3 x great grandfather Thomas CORBET was married 4 times and Jeshurun and Ruth were from his first marriage to Elizabeth. No marriage found yet though, although I have found a baptism for Thomas in the IGI for 27 Jan 1793 at Wellington, Shropshire, son of John CORBET and Mary ONIONS and which I believe to be correct. This was also given to me by the CORBET Onename Study Group.

John CORBET and Mary ONIONS were married in Wellington on 2 Aug 1773. (Source FindMyPast Archive reference P291/A/3/2)

John was the son of Robert CORBET and Mary WYNNE, bapt 3 May 1751 at Wellington. They married 23 Jan 1741 at All Saints, Wellington (source FindMyPast Archive reference P291/A/1/2).

I believe that Robert may have been the son of William CORBET and Eliza ONIONS, bapt 6 Mar 1719, Wellington but have yet to verify this.

Hope this helps.

Merry Christmas  :)

Dee
