      Vincent Cox b. ca. 1633 prob. in ENGLAND as in his will he mentions "moneys I have in England... in the hands of Michaell Ching"

Parcell of land ... on a branch falling into Nominy River ... in Mr. Fra: Clay's line ... at the head of a branch falling into Yoacomaco River ... being part of 665 acres granted to me by pattent 27 7ber [Sept] 1677 - Vincent Cox
      Wit: Peter Smith, Ja: Gaylard.
      24 7ber [Sept] 1673. Acknowledged by Vincent Cox
      Northumberland County, Virginia Order Book 1652-1665
      p. 43
      "Vincent Cox came into this Country 10 Oct 1648" on the ship Honor and would have been about 15 when he arrived. This means that he prob. married in VA. Will of Vincent Cox was dated 5 July 1698 and proved 26 Oct 1698. The short time between the date and probate of the will indicates Vincent was probably not well at the time he wrote his will. Vincent Cox m. ____ who prob. d. before 1698 as she is not mentioned in his will. It is very possible that Vincent married twice and that Hannah was from the first marriage as the other children were much younger.

      Children of Vincent Cox and ____:
      1. Hannah _____ b. prob. by ca. 1654 as she is married by 1672 to George Lamkin. We can assume that she may have received this deed as a wedding gift as there were no children born to her yet. Assuming she married at about 18 years of age or about, this would make Vincent Cox 21 at the time of her birth. Vincent would have been old enough, at age 21, to have been married and have a child. Hannah would have been about 44 when Vincent died. Hannah m/1: George Lamkin and m/2: SAMUEL DEMOVILLEL/ DEMOURVAL/etc. In Vincent's will he mentions the land where Carnock Cox now lives 300 acres adjoining the land of George Lamkin, deceased. Hannah would then be living next door (by those standards - many acres away perhaps) to Carnock/Charnock Cox. Westmoreland County, Virginia Deeds, Patents, etc1665-1677, p.155a-156 dated 6 July 1672, "Vincent Cox of Yoacomaco in Cople Parish, Westmoreland County, unto Geo: Lamkin of Yoacomaco and to the heirs of his body on the body of Hannah Lamkin his wife lawfully begotten or to be begotten and for want of such issue then to the heirs of the said Hannah Lamkin, Parcell of land ... on a branch falling into Nominy River ... in Mr. Fra: Clay's line ... at the head of a branch falling into Yoacomaco River ... being part of 665 acres granted to me by pattent 27 7ber [Sept.] 1667. Signed Vincent Cox and Wit. by Peeter Smith and Ja: Gaylard.
      This is a VERY large gift and it was to be heirs of Geo. Lamkin ON THE BODY OF HANNAH LAMKIN HIS WIFE LAWFULLY BEGOTTEN OR TO BE BEGOTTEN AND FOR WANT OF SUCH ISSUE THEN TO THE HEIRS OF THE SAID HANNAH LAMKIN" This is pretty heavy circumstantial evidence.
      2. Vincent Cox in will of his father mentions "to be delivered at the age of 21 years" which puts Vincent b. between 1677 and 1698, d. ___; m. Anne Paine (one of the exctrs of Wm. Paine, late of Westmoreland County, Virginia). Vincent's will presented 1713 by Jane, his relict... Vincent must have m/2: Jane ___. Will of Vincent Cox dated 3 Feb 1712/3, proved 25 Mar 1713. Wife, Jane, survives Vincent.
      His children:
      1. Winefred Cox (under 21 at father's death and unmarried)
      2. Anne Cox
      3. Carnock/Charnock Cox
      3. Thomas Cox
      4. Martha Cox b. ___, d. ___; m. after 1698 will was written
      5. Anne Cox b. ___, d. ___; m. after 1698 when will was written and before June 1700 to John Redman per Westmoreland County, Virginia Order Book 1698-1705, page 84 [26 June 1700] "Thomas Cox, son of Vincent Cox late of this County, deceased, haveing made choice of John Redman who hath intermarryed with Ann, sister of Thomas, to be his guardian, it is ordered John Redman be possessed of all the estate left him by his father."
      6. Elizabeth Cox b. ___, d. ___; m. after 1698 will was written. Will provides schooling from ten to twelve years of age so she was born prob. ca. 1686. Elizabeth m. William Lewis [Westmoreland County, Virginia O.B. 1711-1713, page 208, dated 28 Jan 1712/13 states: "William Lewis and Eliza: his wife, one of the daughters and legatees of Vincent Cox, exhibited their bill of complaint against Charnock Cox and Vincent Cox, executors of Vincent Cox his last will and testament and prayed that her Majestie's most gracious writt of subpana might issue directed to Charnock and Vincent Cox commanding them true answer to the bill in every perticular thereof to make, which is accordingly ordered".]
