Cury (Cornish: Egloskuri) is a civil parish and village in southwest Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is situated approximately four miles (6 km) south of Helston on The Lizard peninsula. The parish is named for St Corentin and is recorded in the Domesday Book as Chori.
Cury is a rural parish with a population of 388 at the 2001 census. It is bounded to the north by Mawgan-in-Meneage parish, to the west by Gunwalloe parish, and to the south by Mullion parish. Settlements include the church town, Cury; Cross Lanes; White Cross; and Nantithet.
Cury lies within the Cornwall Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). Almost a third of Cornwall has AONB designation, with the same status and protection as a National Park.
The parish church is dedicated to St Corentin. The building is cruciform and of the Norman period, but a north aisle was added in the 15th century. It was probably originally a manorial church of Winnianton but became a chapelry of Breage in the 13th century. From 1905 to 1920 the parishes of Cury and Gunwalloe were served by Sandys Wason as priest-in-charge. Father Wason was an Anglo-Catholic and unpopular with some parishioners; he wrote poems such as "Town" ("I met a clergymanly man, Prostrated in the Strand, He sucked a brace of oranges, One orange in each hand" is the first verse). He is notable for the controversy aroused by his ministry due to his practice of liturgical borrowing from the Roman Catholic Church and other aspects of it. Though disciplined by successive bishops of Truro (Charles Stubbs and Winfrid Burrows) he persisted in his ways until a group of his opponents ejected him from the parish by force.
Stephen and Richard Davey were "adventurers" in the development of Cornish mines, during the boom period. They acquired an ancient Manor House and estate at Bochym in Cury. Richard Davey's nephew, Joshua Sydney Davey (1842–1909), son of Stephen inherited his estate at Bochym.
Bochym Manor is residence to two ghosts, the short pink lady, and an unnamed ghost who stands at one of the bedroom windows.
