April A-Z Challenge: X is for COX

April 28, 2015

XX is for coX (sorry but that’s the best X that I could do).

RICHARD COX was my Great Great Grandfather. He was born in 1817 in  Ashton, Wiltshire, England. In 1838, he married MARY DAVIS in Bath, England. They had four children, born in Bath.

Mary died in 1845, and Richard married MARY JANE EDGECOMBE SULLY in 1847, in Bath. They had four children in quick succession and emigrated to Australia in 1852, where they settled on the land outside Heathcote on a property they named She Oak.

Richard became a successful farmer and was a wealthy man at the time of his death. He is buried at Heathcote cemetary in a family plot with his wife, Mary Jane and son-in-law and grandaughter
