red mail FOX - William 1812-1890
Hi all. Everyone was so helpful with my Ross side of the family, I am now appealing for help with my Fox relations. My Gran's paternal grandfather was William Fox, married to Sarah Lovett. Various trees on Ancestry show William's father as being William married to Elizabeth (surname unknown). However William's marriage document shows his father as John Fox(deceased). William was married in 1839 at St Anne Limehouse Tower Hamlets to Sarah Lovett. I can find no other incontrovertible evidence on linking William to his father John. My grandmother was Florence Maude Fox, d/o John James Fox. Rgds and thanks, Flick
