Catalogue Note

The arms are those of Corbet impaling Hooke, presumably for Sir Robert Corbet (c. 1670-1740), 4th Baronet, and his wife Jane, daughter of William Hooker, the heir of Sir William Hooker, Lord Mayor of London. They married in 1693, and Sir Robert went on to serve as MP for Salop from 1705-10 and 1715-22. As there is no recorded grant of arms to Sir William Hooker, it is probable that he assumed the arms of Hooke.
