The information is this section is gathered from the database used in the creation of the William Cory Branch in Volume 2 of Cory's in America, 2nd Edition by Al B. Cory.
The information has been updated and corrected from the published work. Most of the corrections have been furnished by the Societies Genealogist, Charlotte Muller.
William, resided in Portsmouth, RI. The first record we have of him was, December 10, 1657. He had a grant of 8 acres of land. Ann Roome, his grandmother, was the grantor. May 18 1658 William was made a freeman. 28 Oct 1662 he let or hired out his now dwelling house, with fenced land, to Peter Folger of Newport, for five years with conditions for improving the farm.
Further information is need to tie in the William of Tiverton line to their English ancestors. Currently all we know is that he originated in Bristol, England, but we have been unable to locate any Cory family in that area with the same DNA. Further DNA data is required to make this connection. All male Corys are welcome to participate in our joint DNA project. Please refer to our DNA page for further information.
