A Cox Family of the Burnham Levels in Somerset England

Updated November 29, 2004

Roy Louis D Cox

2, Thornleigh Road


Southampton, SO19 9DH

My Family Research commenced in 1959 and has progressed to a stage that now includes the recording of the name COX or COCK and its variants from any source in the UK. The West Country is probably the largest area covered due mainly to the name's incidence being more prominent there in early times.

There is NOT a Cox/Cock Association or Society as such but a record is kept of the enquirers and their interests, which has been of immense help to other Cox/Cock researchers both in the UK and elsewhere in the world.

My own family cannot yet be taken beyond c.1730 but I do have other references, which will be of use to others that may be more successful. I have quite a large library that includes Census - IGIs - Parish Records and Historical reference.

As part of my genealogical research I also have an interest in the local history of the Somerset Levels that helps considerably in assessing connections. Please have a look at my new site at

I am quite prepared to search my records FOR FREE, based on information supplied, and return the results whether they are positive or negative. Contact is usually best using the email services; certainly it is very much quicker but snail mail will find me for the same results provinding a sae is supplied. I will supply my address if requested.

Success is not guaranteed of course but I may be able to put you on the right track. Please contact me to see if I can help.
