So Joshua's mother was Martha or am I missing something?

Thanks Carole, for some reason I forgot to look there

Just checked IGI, saw nothing on Parents for Joshua and James COX

I think Martha would be too young to be at least Joshua's mother

Hi

Sorry - just noticed that you had said John and Martha only married in 1840

This is possibly son James birth reg as Leighton Buzzard was the registration district for Edelsborough

Births September qtr 1837
 
James COX Leighton Buzzard  6 55

There are 3 female Cox deaths in Leighton Buzzard after 1837

Mary June qtr 1838
Ann Sept qtr 1838
Hannah June qtr 1839

but you would need to buy a copy of James birth cert to be sure

Thank you Carole,

Martha DRAPER is a sister of one of my Ancesters, very low on the list for buying Certs. :-[

Per IGI (possibility as it fits with Joshua's birthyear but area is different.  Mary may have been from there)

Extracted record
JOHN COX   Spouse:  MARY STEVENS    Marriage:  17 NOV 1834   Loughton, Buckingham
 
Submitted record so somebody else is researching this family

Mary Stevens   Birth:  About 1813   Of, Loughton, Buckingham,  
Spouse:  John Cox    Marriage:  17 NOV 1834   Loughton, Buckingham, England

That John COX married Mary STEVENS 1834 is showing on Rootsweb as immigrating to Australia.

Looks like my John COX died 1903. reg Leighton Buzzard
I may have him in 1901 Census with I  think Granddaughter Annie.
