Corys of Devon, Cornwall & S Wales


Alice's grandmother was Jane Cory who was born in 1813 in Tresparrett.  She was the daughter of Robert Cory (husbandman and later blacksmith) and Alice French.  Her father died young in 1830 of typhus fever, leaving Alice's mother to bring up eight children. The eldest son was only 17 when he took over the family smithy at Tresparrett after his father's death.  After a few years all but one of the family moved to St Helier in Jersey, where they prospered and became pillars of the Bible Christian community.

Trees: All titles are parish names with the exception of No. 13, Tresparett, which is a hamlet.

Trees in Devon & Cornwall

There are two series of trees for Devon & Cornwall: DF-H and K published in The English Corys by Michael and Vernon Cory (1995) and, in a series numbered 1-31, other trees researched. All of those listed on the right include people living in the 19th century with references to GRO Births/Marriages/Deaths, census returns and wills giving a reliable foundation. 

We do hold trees for earlier periods,eg 17th and 18th centuries, not included in this list.
