First appearance Unseen

Jim Corbishley was the first landlord of The Rover's Return.

The Corbishleys - 43-year-old Jim, wife Nellie and their son Charlie - opened the Rover's doors for the first time in August 1902. Before that, Jim ran a grocer's shop which he sold for £40.

Jim drank heavily and sometimes hit Nellie when drunk. He encouraged Charlie's exploits with women as he reminded him of himself when he was younger. When the war came, Jim was kept back from signing up because of his age. Charlie was killed in the conflict, and when the war finished, Jim gave up the tenancy and the Corbishleys moved to Little Hayfield.

Jim first appeared in Daran Little and Bill Hill's "Weatherfield Life", published in 1992. Other information is derived from Little's follow-up book, "Around the Coronation Street Houses".
