      The Family had their origins in the West Counties of Devon and Cornwall. Their direct line can be traced back to the Reverend Samuel Cory of Rattery, Devon and Dorothy Bamphylde of Black Torrington who were married in 1663.

      John Cory made a last minute decision to accompany his son Edward to Australia. Within three months, of his arrival he decided he too was prepared to invest in the Colony. His first grant of land, which he called Cory Vale was approved in 1824. He spent nearly four years in the Colony before returning to England at the request of his wife, sailing from Sydney in August 1827. After his return to England he lived at Ashton House just outside the village of Poughill in Cornwall.
