Administrative / Biographical history

Edward Gostwyck Cory (1797-1873), pastoralist, was born in Devonshire, England, the eldest son of John Cory, and his wife Mary, née Gostwick, and grandson of Sir William Gostwick of Willington near Bedford. Cory married Francis, née Johnson, and in 1823 sailed in the Allies with her and his father, arriving in New South Wales as free settlers on 12 September. He and his father soon received land grants at Paterson, some of the first in the lower Hunter River district, and named them Gostwyck and Cory Vale. After some five years they bought land on the Pages River near Blandford, and established Beckham station. By then most of the better grazing land of the lower Hunter had been alienated and Cory looked beyond the limits of the Nineteen Counties for additional land. About 1830, in partnership with W. H. Warland and William, a brother of Henry Dangar, he squatted on some 1300 acres (526 ha) on the Peel River

In 1832 the projected land exchange of the Australian Agricultural Co. on the Peel River threatened to displace many of the earlier squatting occupancies in the area, including that of Cory, Dangar and Warland. In an attempt to find substitute pastures, Cory and a small party set out to explore the area north of the company's Peel River grant. On this excursion, Cory discovered a track across the Moonbi Ranges, by way of a route later followed by the Great Northern Road. Further north, the party camped on an upper tributary of Carlyle's Gully, and named it Cory's Camp Creek in his honour. Cory found no suitable grazing country until he reached the tablelands of the Salisbury Waters. This area proved excellent for sheep, and Cory soon occupied large tracts of it, establishing stations at Gostwyck, Terrible Vale, and Salisbury Plains. Cory sold Gostwyck to William Dangar in 1834, and the other stations to Robert Ramsay Mackenzie in 1837. Although his connection with this area was short, his explorations of the tablelands north of Tamworth, and his discovery of a route across the Moonbis contributed to the early settlement of the New England district
