Richard worked as a secretary for the coal company of John Cory

The control of the affairs of the Company was in the hands of five directors, Messrs’ John and Richard Cory and their sons Messrs’ S. Campbell Cory, Herbert B. Cory and Clifford John Cory, Mr John Cory being chairman. The secretary of the Company is Mr Richard Morgan. Seeing that the chairman of the company Mr John Cory now 78 years of age has throughout his life been intimately connected with colliery owning, coal exporting, ship-owning and railway work, it goes without saying that he possesses an unequalled commercial experience. But, in addition, Mr John Cory presents an example of untiring energy. Irrespective of his own firm, which is the largest exporting firm in the world, he is deputy-chairman of the Barry Railway and a director of the Vale of Glamorgan Railway.
