      Biography
      Marriage
      Robertus Corbet de Morton in co. Salop, miles, son of Richard, m. (1) Katherina fil. Johis Dni Strange de Knokinge et Midle. (2) Matilda filia dni de Tideshill vidua 35 E. 1.[1]

      1255 Lord of Morton
      At the Inquest of Bradford Hundred, taken in 1255, Robert appears as Lord of Morton. It contained one geldable hide (the Domesday estimate) and half a knight's-fee of the Fief of John de Chetewynd. It paid 4d. yearly for stretward, but nothing apparantly for motfee, and it did suit every three weeks to the Lesser Hundred-Court.

      1256 Juror
      At the Assizes of January 1256, Robert officiated as a Juror for Bradford Hundred. His suit with Giles de Erdinton was tried. Giles claimed the right of common, above alluded to, in respect of his tenure at Besford. It was a right throughout 40 acres of moorland in Morton and Preston. Corbet maintained that Giles and his ancestors had had no such right, except on payment of certain acknowledgements in the shape of corn and poultry, but Erdinton asserted a free right, and Corbet was convicted of the disseizin.

      1288 Sheriff of Shropshire
      He served as Sheriff of Shropshire for the quarter ended Michaelmas 1288 and for the year ending Michaelmas 1289. On the Assize Roll of 1292, he is mentioned as one of those Sheriffs who had served since 1272 and were still living.
