About the study
The name SCOREY in England appeared to originate in the New Forest area of Hampshire, England. People soon moved to Southampton, South Stoneham and around the coast to Fareham.
There is a Cornwall - Devon group that might be related to an ancient SCORY family that includes Bishop SCORY. The pedigree is supposed to have died out but I hope to disprove that one day. At present I have not found a link to Hampshire.
Other groups are in County Durham some I know came from Hampshire, but others are related to a SCORY/SCOREY born in Paris as a British Subject. There is also a Bristol group who appear to have no roots in the area, with one family been found to come from Hampshire. The famous PC George SCOREY of Wembley Cup Final fame is one of them. The IGI have odd individuals around the country in the past which may well turn out to be misspelt transcriptions or those who moved away for various reasons. I have now discovered an early group of Scorey's in Wiltshire not far from Hampshire, though they have links with London where some lived and worked. Whether these are related from the wealthier Cornwall Scorey group or are connected to Hampshire remains to be seen. Lastly there are a few Yorkshire Scorey's that appear to link in with the Scorah surname.
I have transcribed the GRO Indexes from 1837 to 2005 for all Births, Marriages & Deaths. I am also intending to find out the spouses for all marriages.
Most census information from 1841 to 1901 has been extracted, and I am now in the process of finding everyone in the recently released 1911 census.
Most if not all Wills, Settlement/Removal Orders from Hampshire Record Office have been obtained, burials from the Hampshire Burial Index as well as the National Burial Index.
Most if not all of the IGI & British Vital Records, and baptisms and marriages from the Hampshire Genealogical Society indexes, as well as from indexes from Sussex & Wiltshire.
From The National Archives I have copies of the Medal Rolls as well as the Seaman Records, and currently looking through CD's of published Medal Rolls taken from the National Archives.
I have also obtained indexes from both Devon and Cornwall FHS's, plus transcripts of BMD's from surrounding southern counties, and wills from both Bristol and Swindon & Wiltshire Record Office.
I have now extracted the information from the National Probate Office Will indexes from 1858-1900. There are not many Wills, so have started to buy them.
I will also be checking parish records where the larger Scorey groups originate from.
I have also started to collect data on Scorey's in Australia, Canada & the USA, and do need help to find out who it was who emigrated.
I would welcome help from anyone researching the SCOREY name and will do my best to help with any queries.
I have made available on the Guild Archive GRO Births & Deaths from 1837 to 1950 and Marriages from 1837 to 1911.
