Sarah Cox b. 1804 Shropshire - help please for family
« on: Sunday 01 March 15 23:14 GMT (UK) »
Hi,
We are searching for more information on the family of our Sarah Cox who was born around 1804 in Shropshire.  Have had no success in finding her birth records so far.   

She married John Cox on the 30th April 1832 at St. Marylebone London.    They had several children and after the death of John Cox, Sarah Cox migrated to Australia around 1865 with her daughter Annie M Cox.     Her husband John Cox was in the 73rd Regiment and came to Australia around 1810 where he was posted for 4 years, and whilst there he searched successfully for his father Francis Cox a Convict who had eventually settled on the waterfront of Sydney Cove as a Whitesmith/Blacksmith.  On John Cox's return to England, we can only think that he returned to his Mother Margaret Cox in Shropshire, where maybe he met our Sarah and then returned to London where they married in 1832 and settled at 26 Lower William Street, St Johns Wood.

Sarah's Death certificate shows that she died on the 21st July, 1888 aged 84 years, at her home, St. Johns Wood Cottage, Leichhardt, Sydney, Aust.     Her parents are shown on the death certificate as George Arthur Jones, Stonemason and Mother as Susan Bailey.

Also shown on her death notice is that she was the niece of the late Sir Watkin W. Wynne of Blue Haven Wales.     Am thinking maybe the 4th Baronet of Wales. Have been unable to find any connection there either.

We are at a loss to find her family heritage so far, and would really appreciate any assistance we can get.

Thanking you in anticipation

Regards

Might have to move this posting to Wales, if there is a possibility of the Sir Watkin W. Wynne family connection from Blue Haven, Wales.    Not sure on my next move.

Hi Jan

Aren't you actually searching for Sarah JONES? She married John COX. COX is her married name.  ;D

Les de Belin,
Oops, yes, I do apologise, we are searching for Sarah Jones born around 1804 who married John Cox.  Her parents according to her death certificate in 1888 in Australia, were George Arthur Jones, Stonemason and Susan Bailey as previously mentioned.

Trish, Yes, that is right, going by census information Sarah Jones should have been born in 1811 at Shifnal, Shropshire, death certificate shows that she was 84 years of age in 1888, which then makes her birth date as being around 1804.    Her daughter Annie was informant on the death certificate, and she appeared to be well informed regarding the family, looking at the information placed on the certificate.

So yes, it could be either 1804 or 1811 as her date of birth.

Hi again,
I've just looked at Sarah's son's death certificate, and it shows his Mother's name as Annie Sarah Jones, father John Cox.
I don't have access to Ancestry, but maybe someone could help me now with the slight change of name please.
