Henry Cory (1846–1936)

The death recently at his home, Vermont, Warwick, of Mr. Henry Cory, in his 91st year, removes the last of a brotherhood of six brothers, all born on or around the Paterson River and Hunter River districts of New South Wales, all of whom entered the grazing industry early in life, and five of whom had Queensland experience, first with cattle, then with sheep. The only one who did not come to Queensland, was Edward Cory, who resided at Terry-Hie-Hie, Moree, till his death some years ago. The others were Alfred (one time owner of Listowel Downs and part owner of Tocal with his brother), Gostwyck (of Vacy Plains, Darling Downs), Charles (one time manager of Aramac Station, Greenhills, Emmot Downs and Hughenden Station) and Francis (also of Tocal, Tarcombe and Longreach).

Mr. Cory had resided at Vermont outside Warwick for many years, since his retirement from the Central districts, and here conducted a dairy and farming proposition, which for some years has been managed by his son. F. B. (Roy) Cory, who was about 20 years ago overseer on Westland. Father and son started a Hereford stud there a few years ago also.

Deceased had not been well for the last two years, and was predeceased by his wife some months ago. Two sons and a daughter survive them Messrs. Roy Cory (Vermont), Mont Cory (Springsure, late of Alice Downs) and Mrs. A. Pollard (La Plata, Blackall).
