Cory Vale

John Cory arrived in Australia on the Allies in 1823. Later that year he travelled to the Paterson River district with his son Edward Cory and their friend from Devon John Boughton.

At the Paterson, land was selected and named Cory Vale. He purchased further estates naming them Poltimore (Pattimore) and Vacy (Vasy).

Cory Vale was situated where the Allyn river meets the Paterson.  There was a track running through the grant of Cory Vale which easterly met the track leading to Wallaroba or to the west entered Adair's grant and then headed south through Vacy, Tillimby, Cintra, Tocal, Dunmore and on to the Hunter River.

John Cory returned to England in 1827. His son John Johnson Cory, a retired Naval Officer arrived in Australia on the Strathfieldsaye in July 1833 and died in 1839.
