Isaac of Plainfield - Table of Contents
This web site is a combined effort. Through the help of many people that have contributed information, I am able to present this. I thank them, as I know you will. There are, I am sure, many inaccuracies, mistakes, typing errors, etc. Please send any corrections, additions, comments to me so that I may update this site.
The following is from Dr. Joan S. Guilford, a Cory Family Society member, who has spent many years researching this line.
Since we do not know the origins of Isaac Corey of Plainfield, Connecticut, we designate him as the first generation, but it is very likely that he is actually Isaac3 (Isaac2, John1) who was born 1 January 1682/83 at Southampton, Long Island and who is said by Al B. Cory to have died 23 February 1698/99. In Corys of America, he is located in the family of William2 (William1), but the will of William2 does not mention him despite the fact that this will was written in 1704 and Isaac1 did not die until 1748. It is rather certain that Isaac1 was born about 1680 to 1685 in view of this marriage in about 1707.
Dr. Guilford has supplied me with a preliminary copy of her publication about this line, Corey/Cory Miscellany, A Contribution to the Cory Family Society. I have added the information supplied by Dr. Guilford to this new database and removed it from the William Cory database.
Further DNA data is required to determine the exact line of Isaac of Plainfield line. The Long Island connections suggest that this may be of the John I line. All male Corys are welcome to participate in our joint DNA project. Please refer to our DNA page for further information.
