  1. I am a small cheesemaker and use a press by T.Corbett. It is in perfect working order, and is my favorite. It produces great cheese and I am very pleased with it. We are located near Monmouth.

    I am also a small cheese maker and own a T. Colbertt cheese press. Dad bought it in 1996 and we have used it constantly up until this April (2011) when it was replaced with a stainless steel equivalent. I prefer Thomas Colbett’s design as our new one isn’t nearly as pretty! It is still in working order. Near St David’s .

    I am researching a Corbett Eclipse corn dresser on loan to the swannington mill in NW Leicestershire. I would be grateful to receive any information about Thomas Corbett, his work and family. My aim is to create a small display by the machine to explain its use but also to create interest for visitors. Thank you Lynda Hall

      Re comment from Llewyn, I have just obtained an identical rusty plaque as part of a lot that I bought in an auction. It is slightly convex from top to bottom and therefore must have been fixed to a curved surface. I wonder what??

    I have a clover barrow drill in very good condition. We are shortly moving house and unable to keep it. Does anyone have an idea as to it’s value

    I am a distant relation of T.Corbett (& family) and would love to be able to access the website dedicated to them. When I click on the link – it doesn’t work, is there another way of accessing this site? Thanks

    Sorting out a desk drawer I found a spring paper clip which was the only ‘antique’ I inherited from my parents! OK it’s not farm machinery but I thought someone may be interested. It’s 3 inches long and is inscribed T.CORBETTS patent and is quite ornate. Possibly an promotional gift? Or an early manufacturing effort? Forerunner of bulldog clips? Any ideas?

    We have found a ploughshare on our land with T Corbett Shrewsbury HL2 R.A.S.E First Prize 1888 (0r 1898 – the last 2 numbers are not clear on the date). Does this suggest that other plough shares were cast with this on it as the result of a prize given by the Royal Agricultural Society to T Corbett or is it a one off given to an individual for a competition e.g. ploughing? It would be interesting to know. Thanks.

  12. Roy says:

    I have an old plough with a single furrow which I use as an ornament in the garden with Corbett and Peel Shrewsbury in the Casting. I would like to know a bit more about it and the approximate year of manufature if possible

    Many Thanks

    We found a plough at the front of Hills Health Ranch, 108 mile town in British Columbia, Canada. It had a plaque on it saying Thomas Corbett, Shrewsbury. Should have taken photos of it.

  14. Mrs Irene Evans says:

    I have come across copies of letters written by my grandfather Moses Williams Gellyfawnen Farm Glanaman dated 1907 and 1908 to Mr Thomas Corbett. Would you like copies of these.
