1871 census lookup please - Corbett
« 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.

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.
