Impressed with history!
This is the family crest and/or motto for many with surnames Corbet and its variants such as Corbett, Corbitt, Corbit, Corbetts, Corbete, Corben, Corbyn and Corbin - the name deriving from the French word corb meaning crow. Similarly, the Spanish name Cuervo means raven or rook. The name could be in reference to a person thought to resemble a crow with dark hair, shape of nose and tone of voice or it could be because the Scandinavians believed that a raven on the battlefield was a good omen that ensured victory.
Other surnames that often have the raven family crest and/or the motto are Jones and Owen.
