King/Cox family - introduction

The King/Cox family
  • The family we have here called King/Cox covers the ancestry of Trevor King and his wife Sue Cox.
  • Trevor was born in Little Horwood, near Buckingham.   Nearly all of his ancestors whom we have been able to trace were born and lived in Bucks, in Little Horwood, Nash, Swanbourne, Drayton Parslow and other villages in the area.
  • Sue Cox, or Wilson, was born in Hampstead, London.   Because she was adopted at an early age, her ancestry has been very difficult to trace, despite efforts by more than one professional genealogist.
  • Trevor and Sue are longstanding friends of Irene and Dave.  In 2011 Trevor asked if Dave would consider doing some research for him and Sue.   Dave discovered that both Irene and Trevor had an ancestor named Susan Anstee - not a common name.   On closer scrutiny it turned out that they were different Susans.  Despite further investigation to try to find a connection between Trevor and Irene, none was found.   In 2017, the Buckinghamshire parish records finally appeared online.   Spurred on by this, Dave explored both Trevor's and Irene's Bucks ancestry - and finally found a common ancestor in Richard Anstee.   No baptism record has been found for Richard, who was probably born in the mid 1500s, nor has a marriage been found.  He died in 1618.   But we know that he had 6 children.  The eldest of these Thomas, born in 1584, was Trevor's ancestor; the youngest, Benjamin, born 10 years later, was Irene's ancestor.
  • Richard Anstee and his 6 children each appear twice on this site, once in the Hartwell tree and once in the King/Cox tree.   For this reason, there is a Same Person link near the top of each of the individual record pages for these 7 people.

  • The most recent change on this web site has been the greater separation of the Foster and Hartwell trees to enable the introduction of the King/Cox tree.
  • Before the above, it was the introduction of Bucks parish records in FamilySearch.com that revealed the connection between Trevor King and Irene Hartwell.   Since we already had Trevor's genealogy on a separate web site, this connection between them enabled us to justify combining the 2 sites into this single site.
