The English Corys, Their History and Distribution

THE ENGLISH CORYS, Their History and Distribution

by Michael & Vernon Cory, published by The Cory Society in 1995.

A foreword by the Society’s Chairman, Mark William Cory Hassall, was added in March 2000 explaining how the original information was compiled and documents later discoveries. Copies of the 233-page book were for sale until the dissolution of the Society in 2016 when remaining stocks were distributed to Family History Societies in areas where Corys originated.
