This family tree site starts with the surnames of my grandparents
Prior to my Grandmother's parents moving to Eastbourne in Sussex, the Davis family came from around Burnley in Lancashire.
Many thanks to Mike Davis for sending me his excellent research on the Davis family.
Around 1800 the Cox family were from East and West Hanney in Berkshire where they were blacksmiths.
My branch then moved to Newington, South London and then onto Oxted in Surrey, where they were still smiths and also ran the Post Office and general store. Another branch also became smiths in Croydon, Surrey.
Many thanks to Jill Wohlgemuth for her invaluable help with the Cox family background.
