Hi Gins
Thank you

Yes, I saw that too re. John being deceased by the time Clara married this also ties in with Eleanor's second marriage to William Brown in 1866.

I just have no idea where John can be during the census returns for 1851 and 1861 - nowhere to be found. I'm also unable to find John's death record especially as I don't have any firm details regarding his age or place of birth

And another child


London, England, Births and Baptisms, 1813-1906

Record Type: Baptism
Baptism Date: 8 Dec 1850
Father's Name: John Cox
Mother's name: Ellen Cox
Parish or Poor Law Union: Whetstone
Borough: Barnet
Register Type: Parish Registers


If John was a servant then that might be why he doesnt show on the censuses with his family, he may have 'lived' in

ahh ... thank you

It's also a mystery as to where John Cox (husband) is, as he never seems to appear on the census returns even though Ellena/Eleanor always states being married

I've been researching for what seems for ever trying to find / confirm details of 2nd Grt Grandmother's Parents.
My 2nd Grt Grandmother is: Clara Amelia Cox b. 1846 Westminster, m.1919 Islington to David Beazley, d.1919 Islington

Her father: John Cox - all I know about him is his name which was taken from Clara and David's marriage details - no date or place of birth known. m. 1845 to Eleanor Jones - info given to me by another FH researcher but I can't confirm details

Her mother: Eleanor Jones b.1824 Hungerford, m. 1845 London John Cox (info given to me by another FH researcher but I can't confirm details - but can confirm names on 1851 and 1861 census), m. 1866 Shoreditch William Brown (again, info given to be by another FH researcher but I can't seem to confirm detail - only those on 1871 and 1881 census). She also appears to have another daughter possibly illegitimately Sarah Ann Jones b. 1841 d. 1933

I may be completely completely off track here ... but, the information seems to stack up - I just can't find the data to confirm it.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated - many thanks in advance
