Famous Corbett Page

Here are some links

to some of

some famous CORBETTS!!

I can't claim that I'm related to any of them,
but they have all achieved some degree of celebrity in their chosen field
and have brought Corbett fame to the Corbett name

Gentleman Jim Corbett - Heavyweight Boxing Champion of the World

Special note on Gentleman Jim; Like most Corbetts, I was told as a
child that we were related to Gentleman Jim. James J Corbett was probably
the first Irish American superstar. Dozens of mothers and fathers named
their sons after the first Heavyweight Champion... that's where MY
grandfather got his name. After retiring from the ring, Gentleman Jim
travelled the Vaudeville circuit as an actor and performer, and in his
travels probably met other Corbetts at stage doors throughout the USA and
Canada and around the world. Being the gentleman that he was, I don't
suppose that he ever discouraged anyone from believing that they were
somehow related. I'm not trying to say that YOU are not related to
Gentleman Jim.. or that your grandfather or great-grandfather wasn't told
this by the great James Corbett himself. I only want you to know that this
website does NOT contain the genealogy of Gentleman Jim, since I have not
one trace of evidence that he belongs in my family tree.
(Although, I hate to admit that , in some of these photos,
I think I can see a family resemblance.) LOL
