• Manorial Estate: Chaddesley Corbett Manor, Chaddesley Corbett, Kidderminster, Worcestershire, DY10, GB. 1 Before the Conquest 'a certain woman' Eadgifu held Chaddesley, and was still holding it in 1086. At that time it seems to have been a place of considerable importance, having eight berewicks attached to it, and consisting of 25 hides, of which 10 were free from geld, the value of the whole being £12. The manor passed in the 12th century to Robert son of Payn, who was succeeded by his son and grandson, both named Richard Folliott. By the latter's daughter Hawise, who married firstly Robert son of Richard, and secondly, before 1199, Roger Corbett, the manor came to the Corbett family. William Corbett appears to have been in possession of the manor in 1235, as at that date an agreement was made between him and the Abbot of Tewkesbury as to a rent and tenement which the abbot's men held in the manor of Chaddesley. He still held it in 1261-2, but had been succeeded before 1266 by Robert Corbett. This Robert died without issue about 1270, and the manor passed to his nephew William, son of William Corbett. On his death about 1282-3 a third of the manor was assigned to his widow Ada. She outlived her son Roger, who died in 1289-90, and on her death about 1290-1 the whole manor passed to her grandson William Corbett.
Hawise married Roger Corbet of Chaddesley Corbet, Worcestershire, son of Simon [II] Corbet 3rd Baron of Caus and Unknown, before 1199.1 (Roger Corbet of Chaddesley Corbet, Worcestershire died after 1216.)
