  The geocities web site identified below reports that this Robert married, went to Connecticut (USA), and died there on 18.09.1695 having had issue there. However, a contributor (JN, a member of The Corbett Study Group) reported on 30.11.03, with apparent evidence, that this Robert actually died young. As Robert is reported in BEB1841 to have dsp, we accept the latter view and suggest that anyone who claims descent from a Robert Corbet of this generation should contact http://website.lineone.net/~corbett_group/.
