    Edwin Frank Cox born 22 May 1850 Northamptonshire.
    Record set England & Wales births 1837 - 2006
    Volume 15
    Page 329

    Is there anybody that can help me to get a copy of the birth record from the Archive office in England?
    I want to start my genealogy search in England.
    I completed my records (up to date) here in South Africa.

    Thank you for your reply, How can I go about the payment ? Is it only Visa payments ? Maybe any other way of payment ?

    I'm not sure, I've only ever paid by visa (debit card)

    Just reading their blurb and it looks like that is the only way to pay. (it is secure so no need to worry)

    It looks like Visa is ony payment - but there is a contact section, where there is a fascility to contact them and ask questions (and a phone number), which might bring forth an alternative payment option.

    This marriage may prove relevant to you - Edwin's birth certificate will confirm whether it is correct:

    3 September 1841 at Northampton St Sepulchre William COX, full age, bachelor, Shoemaker, Ash Street, father William COX, Draper, & Eliza DAWES, minor, spinster, Ash Street, father William DAWES, Shoemaker - (original parish register entry available to see on Ancestry).

    1861 census entry for Portsea, Hampshire (RG9/636, folio 184, page 31) shows Edwin F COX as the son in law of George JUDD, a Cordwainer born Northampton, & his wife Eliza born 1825 Northampton. Edwin has a sister Elizabeth COX born 1846 Northampton and two half siblings George & Lucy JUDD both born Portsea, so it look as as if possible father William COX died between 1851 & 1855. Or perhaps not as she & George JUDD did not marry until 10 April 1860 at Portsea.

    Have to go now, baby sitting duties call, but will look a little further later.

    There is also another birth that may be to the same parents, 2 years previous.

    Interesting Chimp, because I cannot find baptisms for any of the children of William & Eliza COX on Ancestry's Northamptonshire parish registers. I wonder if they were perhaps non-conformists.

    I don't have a sub to Ancestry but have found this. Don't know if it's the Elizabeth Ann I found the birth for or not. Maybe someone could take a look.

    Northamptonshire, England, Church of England Baptisms, 1813-1912

    Can't line up any of the baptisms in Northampton either a William & Eliza [Daw'e's] only a Thomas & Eliza. I wonder if it's another name for William?
