Fox family Look Up Request
« on: Monday 05 June 17 11:41 BST (UK) »
Dear all,
I am tracing the FOX family and am trying to confirm the parents of the following children:

Hamilton Fox, born 1842 in Minterne (doed 1857 Melcombe-Horsey)
Charlotte Fox, born 145, Middlemarsh
Jane Fox, born late 1850 Middlemarsh
William G Fox, born c1849 in Dorchester area

I am thinking the parents of all 4 of these children are George Fox and Elizabeth Fenton but need the PRIs to prove this. George and Elizabeth were married 18 Oct 1838 in Minterne Magna-does anyone have access to the Parish entry for the marriage to confirm the names of George and Elizabeth's parents please.

Any help anyone can offer would be very much appreciated.

Keith

Use the new GRO index to find each birth which will give mother's maiden name so you can confirm parentage.

So likely they are from elsewhere in England.

Not sure about William G but 1851 has the other 3 children age 9 - 6 - 7 months.

Birthplace for Elizabeth in 1851 - Salisbury Wilts which confirms the baptism found above.

Ah should William G be 1859 instead of 1849 - there is a 2 year old in 1861 census.

Elizabeth is a widow - what happened to George as she seems to be alone in 1851 also.
