    Name Meaning

    English (West Midlands, of Norman origin): nickname from Old French corbet ‘raven’, probably denoting someone with dark hair or a dark complexion.History: This is the name of a family descended from Hugh Corbet, a Norman baron who settled in Shropshire following the Norman Conquest. One of his descendants, Sir Richard Corbet, was granted land near Shrewsbury in 1223; since the 13th century, this place has been known as Moreton Corbet. The name was taken from Shropshire to Scotland in the 12th century and to northern Ireland in the 17th century, and thence to North America by at least one group of bearers of the name.
