The picture above is of my great great grandparents, John and Mary Stacey, and probably their 4 youngest children.
Their youngest son George was born in 1882 so that would date this photograph mid to late 1880s.
I will start my thoughts with John and Mary who are the maternal branch of my family.

More about William Cox

More pictures of my father Bill Cox taken during my childhood before my family emigrated to Australia.

This first photo of me with mum and dad was taken in early 1946 when I was a few weeks old.

There are photos of me with dad on the page about my grandfather Samuel Henry Cox.

The picture below of me and dad I think must have been taken on a holiday when I was about 2 years old.

Here are mum and dad playing golf  with my brother Brian who looks about 3 so taken in the early 1950s

Bill and Kay sitting on the beach at Cleethorpes. Don't know when this was taken.  Must have been a bit chilly as Bill is wearing his coat.  Also appears very formal wearing a shirt and tie on the beach.  


The photo above on the left was taken in Regents Park in London when we stopped for a few hours to do a bit of sight seeing on the way to Margate for a holiday in either 1957 or 1958 I think.  The one on the right is in Margate, my brother Brian, me and dad.  Below Bill rowing a boat which I think might also have been in Margate.

Bill was always a bit of a joker and the photos below were taken in Harrogate in 1963 while we were there for my cousin Valerie's wedding.

The one on the left he is impersonating Tommy Cooper and on the right he is giving mum and haircut!
