New and Well Stuck in FOX mud......
« on: Monday 07 January 19 18:26 GMT (UK) »
Hi there.

I am completely new to ancestry, trying to find my family line etc.

Please could anyone help???

I am trying to find the parents of a James Richard Fox born in 1836/7 Hampshire (birth registered or born in Mottisfont). He had to 2 marriages 1st Emma Steere m.1857; 2nd Annie Elizabeth Lee m.?Ireland ?1870ish.

I have found James Richard on the Stanton family tree website and it reports his Father to be a Charles Richard (Farmer) - there is no further mention.

There is a Charles Richard Fox b.1802 (Lyndhurst - Farmer) who married an Elizabeth in 1835; there is also a Charles Richard b.1802 (Mottisfont) father John James) who married a Rebecca Martha Denby - this line is a line of my Grandmothers Fox family with cousins I know about and has been verified as there is a John Shirley Fox (R.B.A) who was a family cousin distant. The Charles Richard (Mottisfont) I can find NO reference to James Richard Fox - yet. I wonder if there was more than one marriage of if James Richard was illegitimate.

Please..... Can anyone help????? many thanks  :)

Hi Carole

Very many thanks - how/where did you find the information??
Was Charles Richard married to an Elizabeth do you know? and also, do you know who Charles Richards parents were by any chance?

How do I find out more information?? I am not yet on ancestry or find my past.....

Many thanks

The 1841 census has 2 possibilities for James in Hampshire - both born 1836 but neither have a father on the entry - only a mother and siblings.

One does have a mother Elizabeth but I can't say if husband is/was Charles at the moment.  There is a 4mth old Emma Fox on that entry and I am trying to find her in 1851

No death for a Charles Fox 1838-1841 in Hampshire

Wife is Elizabeth but no Emma or James.
