Notes

Richard Cox's burial is not recorded at Winslow, either in the parish register or list of burials in woollen. He served as overseer of the poor in 1701/2.

He had some children baptised at Winslow (baptismal records are very incomplete for this period):

His first wife Phyllis was buried on 26 June 1684.
