Not sure. My John Cox lived in Bell St in 1861. He was still there in 1871
Joseph Cox birth abt 1839 in Tipton Staffordshire was a Prisoner in
Islington, St Clements in 1871 Could he be mine? A Joseph Cox received 5 years for receiving.
In 1881 a Joseph L Cox, b. 1839 in Staffordshire, a commercial traveller was staying in a hotel in Scotland.
In 1891 he was living in Macclesfield with his wife Sarah A. born 1841 in Macclesfield. He was described as a photographic dealer.
Interesting fellow. Still need to find conclusive evidence.
I was curious about the middle name "Powell". You have probably found this one but, just in case could be related somehow. Solomon Powell Cox buried 23 September 1869 age 5 abode Church Lane [source: freereg]
I haven't seen this one. John Cox married Elizabeth Powell in 1831 in Tipton. Elizabeth was born in Tipton in 1806. Solomon could be a grandchild. Many thanks.
1871 he was 'untried'
Joseph Cox -1pudler abt 1839 Tipton, Staffordshire, England Prisoner Islington St Clement, London.
Tried to find a Sarah to match him, (alone or with other family) not happened yet.
Earlier you mentioned 3 possible Sarahs as spouses but father was wrong.
Don't forget that errors happen even by Clergy.
Joseph L. still at 70 Prestbury Rd. Macclesfield in 1901.
Wendy was Joseph still in jail in 1881? He is most likely the iron puddler I found in 1861 living close to John and his family. His wife was born in Sedgley
Not sure if this means anything or related at all......

Josiah Cox born Staffordshire.
Birth year estimated 1850
Joseph Lawry Cox died at 5 Leaton Rd, Heaton Chapel, heaton Norris, Lancashire in 1912. His widow was Sarah Ann Cox.
Not sure how he fits in but I have quite a few Josiah Coxes in my tree. I'll have to have a closer look.
Time to take a break, sorry!You may have found my missing Josiah.
Yes, by then he was termed as prisoner & convict.

Choosing one in 1901 is another matter.
I must sit down and sort through all the Joseph Cox b. Tipton. I wonder if they are all related?
I also wondered if this chap was related or his wife.:
Marriage Date: 16 Apr 1802 Place: Stafford, England
Spouse: Elizth. Powell
FHL Film Number: 328836
Reference ID: 328836
I must give it away, been awake since 2am- now 2.58pm. A little goggle eyed. nothing new there
Was Park Lane a type of 'suburb'? There was a Park Lane Colliery found on Google. All children, apart from the two eldest and Josiah whose baptism I can't find, were living in Park Lane when baptised. According to the census records they lived in Bell St.
Joseph Lawry Cox appears to be my missing Joseph. I have traced him backwards from his death in Heaton, Cheshire to Macclesfield in 1901 RG13/3311/f120/p5. According to the 1911 census he was married for 46 years to Sarah Ann born in 1841 in Macclesfield.
Sarah Ann is living with her brother in law William Harrop and sister Elizabeth in Macclesfield in 1881. Joseph is not present. Working backwards - Elizabeth Fisher married William Harrop. Elizabeth had a sister Sarah Ann Fisher born in Macclesfield in 1841. Searching for a marriage between Sarah Ann Fisher and Joseph Cox abt 1865. I haven't found Joseph or Sarah in 1871.
Joseph is possibly the commercial traveller found in Scotland in 1881. Annoyingly I cannot find the census again. I haven't dismissed the Joseph in prison in 1871 and 1881.
Josiah Cox born 1850 in Tipton, Staffordshire joined the 3rd Dragoon Guards when he was 18 years 11 months.
Not only did Archie's Mum find Josiah but also a wife and swag of children, one of whom he named Joseph Lawry.
To sum up. Whilst I'm still searching for the odd census record and Joseph Lawry's marriage, Josiah Cox's impeccable service records from 1868 - 1897 have confirmed I've followed the correct family. Without them I would not have connected Josiah to Henry Cox who married Jane Hardcastle in York in 1876 and the 1901 Scotish census. Josiah was known as Henry Cox. His service record recorded the date and place of his marriage and the births and baptisms of all his children. Two of his children confirm the link - Annie Mercy and Joseph Lawry. Josiah Henry Cox settled in the Goebbels in Glasgow.
Finding a connection to a Henry Cox, I can only conclude the Henry L on the 1861 census was Joseph Lawry and the enumerator mistakenly entered him as Henry.
Apparently....not only am I a pretty face.
So pleased I was able to (accidently) steer you in that direction.
I am sure you would have found it anyway.
Definitely not John Lawry Cox. I found him with wife Sarah in Scotland in 1871. He married Sarah Anne Fisher in Scotland as well. All loose ends now tied up.
Now that the loose ends are all tied up, could you introduce us the the new pup? He/she is very cute with those big feet.
Gorgeous isn't she? She is my new grandpup Pippa. Pippa is a Viszla, very bright, mischievous and active. The two Westies are also grandpuppies. We puppy sit often. They keep us very active! I didn't want to show favouritism, it's Pippa's turn.
