Thomas Correy (the younger) inherited the very popular Correys Gardens Pleasure Grounds in Mortlake from his father, Thomas Obed Correy, Snr, in 1890. He was mayor of Concord three times and served on the Concord Council for over twenty years. Correys Avenue was named after him, as was the bandstand (now demolished) in Queen Elizabeth Park.
