descended from:

Judge Jonathan Corwin: head judge, Salem witch trials

Governor Thomas Corwin: of Ohio, mostly famous for sponsoring the so called Corwin Amendment, to protect Slavery in perpetuity from Constitutional Amendment and Federal Law.

Sir Gilbert II of Culwen: the culwen/curwens are where the modern Corwin comes from. He was a border dude who fought on the English side at Falkirk, personally saving the life of Edward the Longshanks, coining the Corwin motto: SI JE NESTOY "If not for me" or "If I were not there.."

Marcus Valerious Corvinus and/or Valerious Corvinus. Respectively, a politician aligned with Brutus by way of Cicero, survived the transition from Republic to Empire, and an older military guy, who was named dictator of Rome twice, and is the namesake of corvids, because of a battle where a Raven legendarily perched on his shield.

Generally we Corwins seem to be on the wrong side of history, or just bastards.
