THE COX FAMILY
Presented by Kelly Cox
The history of the family in Dalton began with a farm labourer named Albert James "Darky" Cox and his wife Ethel May Cox " nee Middleton" who lived at Glebe Cottage in Dalton Parva from 1926 to 1929. The previous resident in the cottage was Albert Edward Wilson and prior to that was John Davies who had resided there since 1918.
Albert and Ethel had four children John Edward Cox, Beatrice Mary Cox and Winifred May Cox who were born between 1910 to 1925 presumably at Rotherham, and George who was born in Dalton in 1925 Our knowledge of Albert James is very limited as we do not know for sure where he was born (Aldershot is one suggestion) and we cannot find a marriage certificate.
