Thomas CORBIN, Esq.
WARNING:  All of the sources I have found, so far, taking Thomas's ancestry beyond this point are secondary (see below), and while I trust Richardson (2005) to have brought the ancestry of the Virginia CORBIN accurately to this point, I trust none of the others to have reliably taken the line further.  See especially my comments below on Hardy (1911).  Just because everyone has jumped on this bandwagon doesn't mean it's on the right track.  If you have documentation to prove the line goes further, please share.

Beware of these turn-of-the-century "vanity" books, which they are so called for good reason.  This kind of long lineage, without details or documentation, shrieks fabricated.  Such romantic tales sell books, but they are rarely true.  Consider how many genealogies were compiled in this lengthy book, the research in England that would have been necessary to compile them, and what resources this author actually would have had at hand.

The name of Corbin has been associated with the history of Virginia since the Colonial days, when they contributed services to their country as early as 1657.  The immigrant forefather, Hon. Henry Corbin, came to the Colony in 1650.  He was a descendant of Robert Corbion or Corbin, whose son Robert gave lands to the Abbey of Talesworth, 1154-1161, in the reign of Henry II. of England.
